Discussion for Proverbs 25

  • Mr. Smith
    The "unfaithful man" in vs 19 speaks of the "old self/man" that Paul refers to in Eph 4:22-24. He is the "sense ruled" man. A person that only trusts in and relies on that which he can experience with the five senses will be unproductive (like a broken tooth or foot out of joint) and will have no rule over his spirit (vs 28). When a man rules his spirit, all things are possible.
