    I gathered great wisdom from this chapter. It explains the responsibility of our leaders. It is clearly establishing that the Lord finds their role in our lives important. This is why, I pray, for my leaders Mayor Perkins, Governor Edwards, Senator Kennedy, President Trump and all those in between. Be blessed in Jesus' name, Amen.

    4 The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing......this lazy person failed to timely prepare for themselves because of the discomfort of working. 40 years of their life is sowed to the wind plus leaching parents, social programs, then one day they cry nobody will help me. At the least they could have planted, picked, dried black eye peas.

    Verse 1: There is a difference between pure wine - fruit juice and fermented - that which has been processed or allowed to get strong which then becomes strong drink We should know the difference and know that Jesus provided pure fruit of the vine. He was a pure and holy man.

    John 2:10 is Jesus's first miracle of turning water to wine and it indicates people got drunk of this wine. So, this confirms it contained alcohol. Wine by definition is fermented grape juice containing alcohol and if it does not, then it is not wine, but grape juice. Both the word 'wine' is used and the word 'drunk' is used here.
  • Michael - in Reply on Proverbs 20
    strong wine is that has fermented long enough to get one drunk. i second Terry's opinion.

    St. John 2:9-11 "When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: but the servants which drew the water knew the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, 10And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now."

    Verse 12: Eyes that see and ears that hear are a gift from Jehovah God. We should thank him for these gifts and use them in a way that is pleasing to him.

  • BSP on Proverbs 20
    Verse 22 shows that we need to wait on God to take care of the unjust things that we go through. He is fully aware of all the factors and he knows best how to deal with such things.

    Proverbs 20:24 - I believe it is emphasizing the impossibility of human-being to understand his actions

  • Brianna on Proverbs 20
    Vs. 1 I believe Carolyn hit it on the head. Good point about the first miracle Jesus performed. When in moderation, wine is an enjoyment. However, as with anything, our loving father warns us about over-indulging.

    Verse 7 shows that a parent keeping integrity sets the best example for their kids to follow.
  • Valeie Lowery on Proverbs 20
    Understanding the word diverse, mixed or unblance weights and meassure.
    Meaning short changing or cheating people who are unaware of the actual cost of something. God don't like that!
    Ex: buyers something from the market and it weighs one amount, but when u get home u find something in it that added to the weigh and measure! Bummer

  • Gary Rodgers on Proverbs 20
    Verse 19
    Beware of people that try to pry into your affairs with their charm and flattery. Being known to be a gossiper they will surely carry their knowledge of you to the ears of others.
  • Bud on Proverbs 20
    To Yolanda Jones: Go to verse 23 and see if that helps. The LORD detest differing weights and dishonest scales.
  • Michael C. on Proverbs 20
    Hi Yolanda; We could simply say, that we should judge right and equal in all things; but that would not put that verse completely in context of the whole proverb (5-12); which is about how God searches and knows us by our walking in His counsel, which He has put in our hearts; and our drawing out that understanding, unto purity and integrity in all our ways. Nothing else can commend us before Him!
  • Yolanda Jones on Proverbs 20
    I do not understand verse 10.

    Verse 29 shows that young ones can use their strength and power to bring glory to God.

    It means that as men we need to be humble and that it's not about us, let our spirit of God represent him because if we are the light then we must shine because as a servant of the Lord it's the closet people will see of him. Our spirit should show his work.

  • One on Proverbs 20
    Listen People This walk with God Meaning relationship is not about wine, or the bad decisions That we make: Jesus made it easy for us, what had seem to be what God wants us to do. And all falls under are you ready for this LOVE! Love is the only goal in our lives for us to obtain in our hearts Love for God first, then everyone else, especially our enemies.... 1 Corithians 13:1-13, is something that we are suppose to be reading, studing, and meditating on everyday, that we know which directions we are headed...Nothing else matters but Love for if you Love truly, or even try going after truly loving, then will everything that is not Godly risen out of you: You will stop desiring to do anything that is not pleasing to God......God has already covered our sin, with Jesus Christ so now there is nothing you can or cannot do to gain or lose your salvation except deny that Jesus is Lord and savior, and not believe that he suffered with pain and agony till death for the payment of everyone who believes that he did it for our sins Past or present. Just simply for Love, Which is now or job!
  • Listen to Gods words. I have suffered extreme pain and slander because I listened to flattering lips from professing so-called Christians. I didn 't discern that they were gossipers talebearers and I got bit by them. God is trying to protect you. Those who make a habit of bringing up others personal business to you, avoid them!! Don 't be pulled in by it! Don 't join them! They are only interested in gaining your trust and they are masters at fake nice , so that they can get your personal information and use it against you and slander your name to others. They have a sick need to talk about others who are not included in the conversations meddlers and busybodies . You will notice they are always the one who initiate bringing someone else 's personal business into your conversations, with pretend concern for that person. Don 't bite the bait, don 't give them your personal business and tell them that you don 't want to know the personal business of others without them present to defend themselves. God is trying to save you from pain and from joining in their habitual sin. Listen to God and avoid them. They are not walking in love for the brethren. May God protect and bless you. In Jesus name. AMEN

    When you dabble in sin, it leads to more sin. Philippians 4,13
