Discussion for Proverbs 30

  • Mr. Smith
    vs 21-22, Compare Eccl 10:7 (servants on horseback), Even the EARTH is troubled and revolts when people let their sense realm reign over their spirit realm. Solomon calls this EVIL. Paul calls it "sowing to the flesh" and then "of the flesh, reap corruption". It's the law of the boomerang, what we send out comes back, what we sow, we reap. Jesus is the answer. We must walk as he walked.
