Discussion for Proverbs 10

  • Matthew Hamersly
    Oh, and how I have fallen...numerous times! I believe this refers to any who have done what they want with no regard or thought of God's will, guidance or direction for His plan for their life. His plans always work out. Ours' rarely do, as they are fraught with vanity and pride. This passage reminds me that I aught to remember to ask for His guidance in prayer MUCH more often than I do...

    A prating person is one that talks nonsense and a fool is one that says NO to God !!! You can see there how this person falls !!! To be wise is to receive God's commandments and His commandments is His word : All of it !! His Word is His command.

    This verse reminds me of the fool I used to be, I stood no chance without God's wisdom.

    A lot of times when a person talks too much they may say things they shouldn't say or say things in a wrong way as verse 19 shows. We should choose our words carefully.

    What is the Blessing of the Lord ? To me that is His salvation : The totality of His word. ! Salvation is : Preservation : Healing : Soundness of Mind : Deliverance : and Safety : WE can find all this in God's Holy word : We are commanded to obey : When I obey and act on His word and receive His word : I am rich : God gives Life and there is no sorrow at all in what God gives : it cuts away the flesh , But gives Riches and Honor and Life . Within my heart : When all 3 parts of me lines up with God's word : My spirit ,my soul , and my body : All in accordance with God's word !!!
