    "Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: for that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD: they would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices." There is no SIGN given to those who refuse knowledge. Mt. 13:11

    @Sinner82 He took no pleasure in destroying the whole world with water save 8 people, he created us to be his children. It is ultimately our choice to serve him or not, however, we must be willing to face the consequences of our actions. Just as our laws have consequences for unlawfulness so does our God. Throughout the Bible, the word "if" can be found at least 1500 times. It is our choice!
  • William Rankins on Proverbs 1
    I thank God, for all of the books and chapters of the bible. Proverbs 1:1-33, reflects on how God, would that everyone choose wisely, and embrace wisdom. He, expresses how disobedient ppl will end. It has only 1msg; submit to Him, and enjoy a life of insight and integrity.
    Yes, the author state's in 1:7 The reverence of God, is the Beginning of wisdom. I'd like to stress the words "Beginning

  • A disciple on Proverbs 1
    Brandie; It is so glaringly apparent that the Churches are teaching FALSE DOCTRINE! God was not more severe to the people of old time under the first covenant, than to the people from the time of Christ's first coming; but for Jesus' sake He waits for the fullness of the Nations to come in.
  • Brandie Burleson on Proverbs 1
    In response to Sinner82, this is the old testament before Jesus came. God's judgment was harsher before Jesus. He did not enjoy destroying the wicked, that's why He sent His son to die so that sinners like us would no longer be destroyed, but have a way for forgiveness.
  • A disciple on Proverbs 1
    Sinner; Perhaps you should try and read the chapter again a few times, slowly; and take note. It is not about God taking pleasure in bringing evil upon you, as you blasphemously suggest; but about men, as God's sons, should hear their Father's instructions, and take a course in life after His good character; and not be a defiant sinner and heathen; in the end good for nothing but to be destroyed.

    Proverbs 1:5 "A wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: V.20 "Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets" V.23 "Turn you at my reproof; behold I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you." May the Lord give you wisdom.
  • Queen Ebaide on Proverbs 1
    Proverb 1 said it all, we all pray for GRACE FOR EASY LIFE, here is the short cut in verse 8;

    " My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:( God is our spiritual parent)

    9 For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck (Favour and acceptability."
  • Howard on Proverbs 1
    The book of proverb is a book of wisdom and we can all benefit from it if we will obey. God says obey my commandments and live. We must repent first 1john 1ch verse 9.God bless you all. Walk with king jesus today and forever..
    St. John 3:16-20. Matthew 11ch verse 28-30. Whenever God call us we ought to answer, because that is his holy Spirit dealing with us orr talking to us. Let us hear.

  • A disciple on Proverbs 1
    Dear Irene; the Lord Jesus loves you, and doesn't hold any hard feelings about the past; but He said that He wouldn't ever mention those things to us again, after we've turned from them and now do right. We are in very dreadful times, and we all have family members who are out there, still in their sins and in grave danger. We bring them to the Lord in our prayers and stay true friends regardless.
  • Lu2677 on Proverbs 1
    Proverbs 1:7"The Fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge:"V.24"Because I have called,and ye have refused:I have stretched out my hand,and no one regarded."26,I will also laugh at your calamity;I will laugh when your fear comes(fear of what?that which comes in v.27,destruction,distress,anguish.29;they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the LORD. 33;harken unto me=noFEAR of evil.
  • Irene123 on Proverbs 1
    Anne, that was just beautiful. I so regret I 'backslid' during my children's pre-teen years - for the next 34 yrs. and now they are into drugs, in and out of prison, but for the last almost 3 yrs., since I'm back with the Lord, He hears my prayers. It is SO important to raise them in the Word of God. They are our responsibility, not our hindrance to our own lives.
  • Irene123 on Proverbs 1
    Pro. 10:10, 14; " if sinners entice thee, consent thou not"; " ... let us all have one purse."

  • Beverley on Proverbs 1
    I thank Almighty GOD for the book of Proverbs because its a book of wise instructions and the world would be in a better condition if every human being under the plan it earth would take heed to the book I want to encourage everyone to take heed to the word of God so that we escape the wrath which us to come JESUS CHRIST gave his life for all humanity and if one goes to hell we have no excuse
  • Anne on Proverbs 1
    Parents, please raise your children and don't let the TV, social media, and celebrities do it for you. Don't be afraid to tell them "no" when they ask for something that is not good for them. Chastise them when they are wrong and above all else, let them know that Jesus Christ is The Way, The Truth and The Life. Spend quality time with them and tell them that you love them often. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, so make the most of the time you have with them.

    we need wisdim
  • Joe Diggs on Proverbs 1
    Proverbs 1 inclines us to seek wisdom at every turn and capitalize off understanding on convenient terms for our own purposes as opposed to aligning our faith with God's promise. The premise is on being consistent out of gratitude. Understanding it's all a blessing as we live and learn.
  • Marcel on Proverbs 1
    I thinking that God wants us to love and honour him willfully, in spite of fear, we should abide in His word , because it makes our lives a little easier to navigate, and gives us the ability to help others, and mature in the process of Him perfecting us. He loves us in spite of our faults and forgives, and is just and fair what more could we ask for.
