Discussion for Proverbs 11:30

  • Sunday Alaka Ogechi on Proverbs 11:30
    He who would succeed in winning souls needs to be wise. It needs wisdom to succeed in the business of life. It needs a far higher and nobler wisdom to win Souls. It is an exceedingly difficult thing to win men over from the ranks of sin and Satan to the ranks of God and His Christ.The would-be soul-winner needs to be theoretically wise. He needs to be well informed. He cannot know too much and must be well informed on some very important matters, e.g., the sacred Scriptures, human nature, etc.He needs to be practically wise--wise in action as well as in thought. He should deal largely in the most attractive and pathetic truths. He should carefully choose the most appropriate seasons. He should cultivate the most loving spirit and the most kindly manner. He should be much in communion with God.
  • Michelle on Proverbs 11:30
    The word that come from our mouth are soul food so be wise in what we say to another
  • Scott on Proverbs 11:30
    The Basic English Bible translation is jarringly different from the other translations, and in my opinion, wrong how does it get "violent behaviour takes away souls " from "he that winneth souls is wise "? Compare with all of the other translations. Where did the violence them come from? How could Basic turn a basically evangelic verse into such a negative expression?
