Reflections on Proverbs
October 19 2009
By the way, I'm really starting to bog down on the “eths” of the King James. I am so thankful that God has allowed His word in language that can be understood!
Proverbs 19:3 (KJV) →How do I fret against the Lord in my actions? Do I really want the answer to that question?
Proverbs 19:4 (KJV) →Yet those many friends aren't true, for when poverty comes, they will abandon the wealthy man.
Proverbs 19:10 (KJV) →Fools don't deserve delight. Period. They need correction and trouble, and that's what they'll get.
Proverbs 19:11 (KJV) →Are you holding on to anger? It's glorious to let go of minor transgressions and not bother about it.
Proverbs 19:18 (KJV) →Sometimes, apparently, a parent should let, and even make, their child cry. Why? Because fundamentally, we're very selfish, and we need to get over ourselves.
Proverbs 19:19 (KJV) →And this is why, sometimes, it's better just to let people be mad and learn to get over it. If you smooth out their anger now, where will you be when they get angry again?
Proverbs 19:29 (KJV) →Bad stuff is coming if you don't do what's right. Really it is. You've been warned.
