Reflections on Proverbs
October 9, 2009
Proverbs 9:1 (KJV) →Wisdom is complete. It is not for us to add on, but to learn from.
Proverbs 9:6 (KJV) →Not just leave being a fool yourself, but foolish people as well.
Proverbs 9:7-8 (KJV) →Rebuking and correcting fools is a waste of time, at least as far as the fool is concerned. (It is valuable for others to learn from those fools.) Also, turn this around. Consider how you act when rebuked. Do you hate or love those who rebuke you?
Proverbs 9:9 (KJV) → Wise people seek to increase their wisdom. There's a story that Einstein was once at a college reception. Some student, not recognizing him, asked what he did. Einstein's reply? “I am a student of physics.” The college student replied “I studied physics last semester.” Which are you?
Proverbs 9:10 (KJV) →Not science, not literature. Let us as believers use our minds well and demonstrate this truth to the world!
Proverbs 9:11 (KJV) →Wisdom or folly are internal, and they help or hurt you!
