    Irene 123, Proverbs 27:2 "a stranger" is not specific to one that is not saved.
  • Irene123
    V. 2 - "Let another man praise thee .....; a stranger ..... "; to have a 'stranger', one who isn't saved, praise you - is indeed a glorious thing. Because by your walk with the Lord that he has seen he has taken notice that you "have been with Jesus", Acts 4:13. Just our 'walk' with Jesus is a witness to the world, without saying a word. The Lord uses ALL of us, physical and spiritual, to witness.
