I ended up getting called to sub the second half of the day, and dashed off to Aldi before I headed to school. But during that brief but wonderful quiet time I drank a cup of chai and read my Proverb for the day. This morning I am home again and that same candle burns.
Here are some of the Proverbs that stood out to me the past few days....
Proverbs 14:1 "A wise woman builds her home, but a foolish woman tears it down with her own hands."
~ This first verse really caught me as I read it. The Bible has a lot to say about women and the home. Oh, how I want to be a home builder! God, please help us in this!
Proverbs 14:2 "Those who follow the right path fear the Lord; those who take the wrong path despise him."
Proverbs 14:7 "Stay away from fools, for you won't find knowledge on their lips."
~ We need to be especially careful whom we seek advice from. We really need to be sure that we are seeking godly counsel, not just validation of our own desires or opinions, when dealing with the issues of life.
Proverbs 14:9 "Fools make fun of guilt, but the godly acknowledge it and seek reconciliation."
Proverbs 14:12 "There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death."
~ Be careful which path you take. Be wise as you discern the difference between what seems right, and what is right.
Proverbs 14:16 "The wise are cautious and avoid danger; fools plunge ahead with reckless confidence."
Proverbs 14:26 "Those who fear the Lord are secure; he will be a refuge for their children."
~ Our decisions affect generations. I desire to make wise decisions that will pass down blessings, not harm, to our children and the generations to come.
