Wesley's Notes for Proverbs 27:1


27:1 Boast not - Of any good thing which thou purposeth to do, or hopest to receive tomorrow, or hereafter. Knowest not - What may happen in the space of one day. The day is said to bring forth, what God by his almighty power either causes or suffers to be brought forth or done in it.

    You do not know what shall be on the morrow. You may make plans , but be flexible enough to go a different route for that day. Never face your day untill you have had alone time with God our Father to direct our path. Then you will have the Grace to meet what is ahead and know what to do.

    Verse 21 shows that the way we react when we receive praise can be a test of whether we are humble or proud. If we are not careful, praise can develop with in us feelings of superiority or pride.
