    Proverbs one I think is for wisdom and knowledge and truth either you serve and love Satan or serve and love the Lord teaches us to abide in wisdom but as for me and my house I will serve the lord

    We just have to fashion our lives in line with the Word of God. As long as we do that, we will live in the "Blessing". I see a similarity with psalm 1. For God to help us to flourish and enjoy peace, we must reject the views and opinions of the wicked and check all our actions to ensure they are in tune with what the Word of God says.

    Common Sense and Wisdom do Go together. One without The Other May Keep You Going to The ER. The Rest of Us Dying with Laughter. We All have that Reaction Sometimes, it's Automatic. I was Guilty a Few Times had to Ask Forgiveness for Laughing/ Proverbs 2:6 For The LORD giveth Wisdom: Out of His Mouth Cometh Knowledge and Understanding. Wisdom is Found All through Proverbs. Read 1 Chapter Daily.

    WISDOM IS COMMON SENSE
  • Stanley Vladimir Kolbjornsen
    The book of Proverbs is one of my favorite books in the Bible because it is to the point and it tells precisely that wisdom and common sense are very much related to the same meaning that one coincides with the other.

    Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel? Ezekiel 33:11

    they flatter themselves in their sinful ways, and I see so called Christians embracing sinful ways excepting them as well, Christ walked with the sinners to lead them from their sin, as we all should as well, love thy neighbor is not walking with ignorance of the word, for that will not save them from hell, Pray for them that their eyes be opened and their hearts be filled with the spirit
  • I AM THAT I AM
    Is there just one Godly spirit here? A spirit of God confesses that Jesus Christ himself, even the Christ child, now walks in his own flesh this very day. Not one confession has posted. But a confession need not post for God the Father to hear it. Nor must my sayings post for the godly to hear them. Amen and Amen

    Sinner82, God DOESN'T take "pleasure" in the destruction of the wicked. That is why He sent His only begotten Son to shed His blood and die for us, as it is written in John 3:16.

    "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!

    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

    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
    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
    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.

    Verse 5: A wise person is willing to listen and learn.

    I thought He took no pleasure in the destruction of the wicked.....this doesn't add up

    Verse 10: Those who are doing bad things may try to entice others to join them in their bad course but here we are warned not to follow them and consent.

    The beginning of wisdom, is to fear, respect and uphold the instructions and counsel of "wise persons - our parents inclusive" - Amen!

    Verse 8: Children are here urged to obey and listen to the counsel and discipline that they receive from their parents.

    Proverbs gives you understanding of a true l8v8ng God cause he lives in me cause i am like it says in verse 7 i am like the woman shouting out for more Wisdom in Jesus Name

    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.

    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
    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.
