Discussion for Proverbs 10

  • A disciple
    "The wise in heart will receive commandments: but a prating fool shall fall." Proverbs 10:8 We want to be counted wise, and to have a heart like our Lord Jesus. Look carefully at the Master and study His manner of life, His speech, His behavior under all circumstances this is how we want to be, and to please our heavenly Father ALWAYS! If Jesus always does those things that please the Father, who does any man think he is, that he doesn't have to DO and BE in all his course in life, a living example of God's Law and the Testimony of Jesus Christ? Our regeneration and partaking of His Spirit is for the Spirit of God to use to convict the world and bring it Light that it might be saved.
