    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 ( Ps 23:5, Lk 7:46); anointing to kingship ( 1 Sam 10:1); or for healing ( Mk 6:13, Js 5:14). So the verse in Prov 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. ( Mt 25:14-30).

    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.

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

    You are right, "rely more on him through prayer". Thank you, Shar.
  • Shar - In Reply on Proverbs 21 - 4 years ago
    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.

    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
  • Will of my father on Proverbs 21 - 4 years ago
    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 - 4 years ago
    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

    Clay it's just saying who can mess with the creator? You can't touch his absolute superiority on all counts.

    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 - 5 years ago
    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 - 5 years ago
    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.

    Verse 5~This shows the importance of planning and preparing.

    Jim, I think you meant verse 20 concerning money. I agree with you.
  • Lilian on Proverbs 21 - 6 years ago
    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 - 6 years ago
    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!
