Reflections on Proverbs

October 14 by Doug


Proverbs 14:1 (KJV) → “ Plucketh” →Nitpick? Perhaps we should realize the long-term damage of little things.


Proverbs 14:2 (KJV) →despiseth who? The upright man or the Lord? Or perhaps both?


Proverbs 14:4 (KJV) →Oh that we would be less stressed about clean!


Proverbs 14:9 (KJV) →Mock at sin? But isn't that our national entertainment? What else will we be able to laugh at?


Proverbs 14:11 (KJV) →The righteous “tabernacle” here because they are just passing through, and how do we act? As if treating this life as permanent is a good thing? And why do we devalue those who live in tents and not houses, both really and metaphorically?


Proverbs 14:14 (KJV) →Backsliding puts you surviving on only what you have within you, and receives no increase from God's supply. Is that really what you want?


Proverbs 14:17 (KJV) →Must control temper. Repeat. Memorize. Mix with Proverbs 14:29. Repeat.


Proverbs 14:27 (KJV) →There is one good fear, and it's to fear the Lord God Almighty. Fear nothing else but Him and things will go well. Although a little concern about snakes is acceptable :)
