Discussion for Proverbs 22:24

  • I wanted to reply to Jody 's comment. Jody, I can assure you that not every man and hopefully Christian men would ever treat a woman in this manner. If a husband is one of your desires, give it completely to the Lord and let Him guide you in that. If that 's His will, He will lead you to the right one. I know of a couple in my Church whose marriage was created in this way. My prayer for you is that the Lord would heal you from the pain and damage from these relationships. Take care and God bless...

    1 CORINTHIANS 15 v 33 DO NOT BE DECEIVED... EVIL COMMUNICATION CORRUPTS GOOD MANNERS.
  • Anger is very deadly to every Christian by that anger you 'll be led to darkness.
  • Very prophetic and spot on.
    I knew not that the only and every 4 relationships in my life would be seriously abusive...There is a lack of man in many many men today.Better for me to be alone.
