    Respected sir/mam

  • Esther on Proverbs 21:17
    According to Proverbs 21:17 verse what is the meaning of oil
  • Chris - in Reply on Proverbs 21:17
    Esther, Oil was a very expensive commodity & only the rich could afford it. It had many different uses in those early days, and this would have included, a special act of love shown to someone (Psalms 23:5, Luke 7:46); anointing to kingship (1 Samuel 10:1); or for healing (Mark 6:13, Js 5:14). So the verse in Proverbs 21, is really indicating that both wine & oil (those more expensive items) can only bring the common man to poverty. Today, overuse of oil is not really a means to poverty, but more so with alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, gambling, over extending our budget, etc. As Christians, we are responsible before the Lord in our use of the money & gifts he has given to us. Some may not have much in those terms, but what we do have, we must use for His Glory & Purpose. (Matthew 25:14-30).
  • Amen, sister!
  • Kelly right on Proverbs 21:19
    My father would always tell my mother this, along with bashing her. Now he is accusing her of witchcraft. Lest we forget that god used A woman in his plan too, to bring his son.
  • Will of my father on Proverbs 21
    A brawling woman is not a Godly woman. The man and the woman must yield to the leading of the Holy Ghost just as the bride of Christ (the chuch) to Him that your prayers be not hindered. Check out 1 Peter 3
  • Donna on Proverbs 21
    I'm shocked and sadden. Are these Christians responding here. You talk only about the nagging wife.-But there is a root to this fruit. "Why?" She is responding to something wrong. How she responds gets on the man's nerves, but there is something the man is lacking here. It is responsiblity. When she responds like this, it may make you want to be anywhere but there, but She has unmet needs. Love h

    I agree. To every action, there is a reaction.

    Said well

    I was reading this today as part of my morning devotion, and I can definitely see how you feel. As a woman, mother and wife, there are times when I feel disrespected which leads to irritation and frustration. At yes, at times it makes you lash out but as I read the other comments, and pray more I also know that Jesus helps to temper our attitudes and helps us to rely more on him through prayer.
  • Donna on Proverbs 21 - in Reply on Proverbs 21
    You are right, "rely more on him through prayer". Thank you, Shar.

    1 Peter 3:1 tells the woman what to do if the man is not godly. It's not to correct him but to show him fear so he may show the Lord fear
  • Benny on Proverbs 21
    Clay it's just saying who can mess with the creator? You can't touch his absolute superiority on all counts.
  • Cynthia on Proverbs 21
    In life there are so many enemies of destiny and talking about our plans most times gives them the edge to manipulate. It is better to talk your plans over to God than man. He will give you better direction. So, thank God for this word that came to me today as a reminder that I should talk less about my plans and depend on God to help achieve my plans. Also, I don t need to have an opinion in every matter that is brought around me. Sometimes, people capitalize on the word you say and use it against you. I have been in so many situations to know that most times having no opinion is better than be a smart aleck . So yes, He who keeps his mouth and tongue, keeps his soul from trouble.

    It is important that we keep our words in check and we can avoid a lot of problems if we think before we speak.

    Verse 30~ No matter how practical human wisdom may seem, if it is in opposition to the wisdom from Jehovah God it will ultimately result in foolishness.
  • JoAnn Eichmiller on Proverbs 21
    Proverbs 21:1 Speaks to the heart it tells us how God can take any heart and change it no matter how dark it has become. It speaks of true repentance and true salvation entering any heart by believing on the Lord Jesus Christ and receiving Him as Lord and Savior. God can change any heart His arm is not so short it cannot reach, His Word is alive and full of truth and full of His power.

  • Brianna vs. 2 on Proverbs 21
    Society today is trying to make any and every lifestyle be acceptable and without consequences. However, we have to acknowledge that there is RIGHT and there is WRONG. We can't push that everything should be accepted and then wonder why this world is going down the toilet. Just because something seems right in our own eyes it does not make it right. We need God's standard of right and wrong.
  • BSP on Proverbs 21
    Verse 5~This shows the importance of planning and preparing.
  • Jim on Proverbs 21

  • Theresa on Proverbs 21
    Jim, I think you meant verse 20 concerning money. I agree with you.
  • Lilian on Proverbs 21
    Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue shall keepeth his soul from troubles.
    The words of wisdom only comes from Jesus Abba Father please guide me and cleanse my heart my mind and my soul let my mouth and my tongue away from speaking of unrighteousness by your blood I am cleanse let my mouth and use them to praise you and worship you forever amen hallelujah
  • Jim on Proverbs 21
    Verse 21: Christians know that it is the 'love' of money is the root of all evil and not money itself. Poor financial management by Christians is sad today. Most people cannot come up with $500.00 for an emergency without using credit cards etc. I believe God expects Christians to be diligent and wise with all He has provided including wealth; it should all be used for His glory!
  • Glenn Collins on Proverbs 21
    I especially like verse 30 of Proverbs 21 because we are living in times where Christians are letting the media deceive them into believing you can war against our maker and get away with it ! Remember II Chronicles 7:14 (If MY peopleā€) I make no apologies for this statement.
  • Ahuwa Chiamaka on Proverbs 21
    God is the All knowing,Wisest
  • Caleb on Proverbs 21
    no matter how we prepare GOD is in charge so it is by grace that we are able to deliver when we have prepared
  • Philip on Proverbs 21:30
    GOD has the final word,final power and the final authority. Aren't you joyful to know this
  • Paul Shetu on Proverbs 21
    13 This verse: If it means what it says, one will have themselves to blame when finding themselves in prolonged trouble. to me abiding by this truth is vital even for ANSWERED PRAYERS! Halleluiah!
  • Bettye Blaylock on Proverbs 21
    I love this verse because if we all abides by just this verse we would have more peace in our lives.
