  • Kelechi Okeke for verse 26

    Kathy F. The Most High calls us a treasure. You are a treasure and a precious gem to HIM. When you've received a gift is it on display or is it neatly wrapped with a beautiful ribbon. How do you dress if you were going to have dinner with the president? How would you dress if you were going to have dinner with some one you respected and looked up to. You would dress with respect for yourself respect for the person whom you're having dinner with. Let the holy spirit teach you how to dress. I've never seen a princess running around half naked. You don't have to dress like every one else modesty is beautiful!!!!

    Proverbs 11:22

    As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.

    In other words one can still look to be desirable and yet repulsive/unattractive at the same time.

    - A jewel of gold is desirable but it is in a pigs snout, yack!

    - A fair woman is desirable, but lacks discretion, yack!

    "Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies." (Proverbs 31:10)

    "Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised." (Proverbs 31:30)

    The Lord's view of a woman's beauty and it ought to be ours as well.
  • Bob Grove
    I could not afford one so I stayed single . No regrets single is much better than a deadlock if you get into a unholy marriage . You only get 1 until she dies so make sure you make a wise choice .

    Two is better than one if it's Good .
  • Kathy Forrester for verse 22
    Need a lesson on length of dresses or skirts. Will I be judged on my length of skirt or dress. Something is telling me it's the length of the skirt it's the way you appear yourself . Help me out please
  • Stanjett for verse 22
    I think you are right. It is how you want to appear to others. I don't see a thing wrong with a short tennis skirt. It's practical.
  • Mishael for verse 22
    Deuteronomy 22:5

    The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are an abomination unto the LORD thy God.

    1 Timothy 2:9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array

    Matthew 5:27-28

    Says that if a man looks on a woman to lust after her, has committed adultery with her already in his heart;

    How we dress matters to the Lord. At home with your husband, that is private between you both.

    I def feel like in 2019 and within the last 20-30 years ppl have centered themselves around the knowledge of gaining more wealth and trusting in its substances than getting on the altar and getting filled with the Holyghost so we can trust God with our lives..bcuz Proverbs 11:28 reminds me that on Christ the solid rock we stand, all other ground is sinking sand. So everyone trust in the rock JESUS

    Today take time to change your life, by doing something different. Give GOD THE GLORY FIRST. Then be there for someone who needs you. Then focus on yourself. What would relax you from all your problems? What would calm you enough that you and God would become one. What would calm your sole so that you could hear the sounds of His Creations. Walk among the silence of GOD. Listen intently to Him:

  • Rev. Quesenberry
    Verse 4; all the wealth in the world cannot help when Gods judgement comes. But righteousness delivers us from death. God gives live to the ones who live a holy life. Hebrews 12 says without holiness no person shall see God. In the Old Testament days the Holy Ghost did not live inside people. That came-at Pentacost. Folks would just live right or not by the law and sacrificial system.Jesus fixed.

    Love proverbs one of my favorite books , Awsome.
  • Rhode Island Pastor
    A thought in respect to Proverbs 11:30: He that winneth souls is wise.

    Satan is selfish and an adversary, and although his time is short, he tries to get as many souls to follow him and end in the lake of fire.

    We bible-believers, in contrast, ought to be UN-selfish, as ministers of reconciliation, knowing our time is short, ought to get as many souls to follow Jesus Christ. Opposite of Satan.

    Verse 20: Our actions can have a great impact on how God views us and we have the opportunity to bring pleasure to God.
  • BSP
    Verse 25: Some may hold back from giving because they feel that they will not have enough for themselves. This verse is a promise from God that the generous person will prosper.
  • Obbie Beal
    Thank God for His Wisdom in this proverb, It is a 'Lamp' and 'Guide' for the human race. WOW!
  • Galen Wright
    Very hard to answer,"never give up, you wouldn't stop keeping his commandments. Did Jesus give up or did he stick it out to the very end!
    There is so much opposition out there or most the people closest to you!
  • Ann Forrest
    Christians,

    Proverbs11 purely tells Christians to bear fruit,we should win souls for Christ Jesus,Amen.
  • Janet Dixon
    If the wicked fail repent and held the belief that when they die, they will be seated in the bosom of Jesus Christ, they need to think twice. For the wages of sin is DEATH.....
  • Frain Sàin Magee
    Its talking about Humility.
  • Kenneth
    Divne insights for living.
  • Sandie Nagy
    It 's not just chapter 11, I would like to comment on. Many years ago a pastor pointed out how Proverbs has 31 chapters. He said it is a daily devotional in the middle of our Bible. It 's the book of wisdom and instruction. I 've been reading through Proverbs as part of my daily devotions for over 30 years now. It has been a blessing and voice of instruction and still is. I praise God for His Word and the pastor that showed me the treasures to be had by reading through Proverbs every month.
