Discussion for Proverbs 3

  • A disciple
    Susan; When God appeared to Solomon in a dream and told him to ask whatever he desired; Solomon's desire was to be able to shepherd the people of God with wisdom and understanding like his father David did. If you read the opening words of the Proverbs you can see this was his intention, and the Spirit of God's inspiration, to teach wisdom and give practical knowledge for a meaningful godly life.

    Verse 27: We don't want to hold back doing good in any way when it is within our power to do so.
  • Lu2677
    Heeding His word is liberating; peace and joy comes with obeying his commands. v.5"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding." Folks, this is not a suggestion from the Creator, it is a command!
  • Lu2677
    Proverbs 3:1-7,11-12. This chapter is similar to the concept of Psalms 91. When we learn his commandments and do them, we are set free. I am awe struck; so, to answer the question about being frustrated with Psalms 91, no I'm not! Amen.
