Most don't know how to read Proverbs

The proverbs of Solomon: A wise son makes a glad father, But a foolish son is the grief of his mother. —Proverbs 10:1  Proverbs are generalities, not laws or promises.  They are very generally true, but we must not assume that if we do “A”, “B” will always be the result.  And beware that some Proverbs are observations of what is true, even of what God does not approve of. Proverbs are mostly written in couplets of two phrases that are...

What most do not know about debt and surety

The rich rules over the poor, And the borrower is servant to the lender. Proverbs 22:7 My son, if you become surety for your friend, If you have shaken hands in pledge for a stranger, You are snared by the words of your mouth; You are taken by the words of your mouth… Deliver yourself like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, And like a bird from the hand of the fowler. Proverbs 6:1-2, & 5 Funny isn’t it?  Christians say they believe the Bible is the Word...

As David loved Absalom, God loves His guilty children

“O my son Absalom—my son, my son Absalom—if only I had died in your place! O Absalom my son, my son!” —2 Samuel 18:33 One way that David was a man after God’s own heart was in his love for his sinful erring son, Absalom.  Absalom was a murderer (he killed his brother Amnon in chapter 13).  Discontent for his father to rule, he usurped the role of king, setting up his own kingdom in place of David’s.  Adding insult to injury, he...

What you can do for God is unimportant

“Wherever I have moved about with all Israel, have I ever spoken a word to any of the judges of Israel, whom I commanded to shepherd My people, saying, ‘Why have you not built Me a house of cedar?’” —1 Chronicles 17:6 David was settled into his house in Jerusalem.  He got to thinking, “I dwell in a house of cedar, but the ark of the covenant of the Lord is under tent curtains.”  That didn’t seem right to David so he purposed in his...
