    27 a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit.

    28 She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men.

    Old saying: "Sin will take you FARTHER than you wanted to go; KEEP you longer than you

    wanted to stay, and COST you more than you wanted to pay." That is the true nature of sin.

    Verse 23: to obtain the truth found in God’s Word it takes hard work and sacrifice.
  • Pastor Pjewole Philip
    The Bible Proverbs 23:4 doesn't oppose hardwork. It rather wisely advice us not to stretch ourselves beyond limit in quest for wealthy else, one may worn out, becomes greedy, a miser, and above all one may have little or no time for God. It's important to note that it's not hardwork though it's a requirement that brings riches, but God's favour and opportunities Ecclesistes 9:11 .

    "Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven. Consider if you strive all your life to make money and never have time for your kids and family, they will suffer and so will you. Because all the money in the world can not make up for time and love.

    Verse 20: The Bible condemns drunkenness so it is important to be moderate in our use of alcohol.

    Proverbs 23
    Summary: In the depths of the "Earth" the wicked is awaken in the "Eyes" of the wicked comes the sins of the "World". Casting out their deadly holds, the "World" becomes a new on the "Back" of the new "Son". Counting amoung your "Peers" holds the secrets of tomorrow. Proverbs 23_ 10-27

  • Andrew Browne Troupe
    May God help those who have done me wrong..
    My children have been taken my life stolen
    Was removed from my peace life without reason..
    Homeless no money
    Unjustly ..
    I have nothing except God family and friends ..
    If God is with us
    I can only pray
    I know he is..
    Thanks for your sight
    I was blind
    All this was caused by
    My spiritual awaking..
    It confused many ...

    I too have sin of gluttony. Andrea I hear you loud and clear. I always have to remember physically that my stomach is only as big as my fist. And that is what I try to remember when I eat anything. As long as we have enough food to fill that you can control eating and most of all talk with the Lord before during and after. Remember Your body belongs to the Lord. :) Not the devil.
  • Kenneth
    first try to accept we are human and not perfect. So when fears creep in call on God. Be as patient as you can and let God handle the situation in his time and not yours.
  • Lindy
    For Andrea: I will keep you in prayer. Believe and know that your life is changing now!

    God bless you!

    I was led here because of the sin of gluttony or overeating. It's a sin that I've been plagued with since childhood. It's a sin many Christians endure, yet many preachers aren't talking about this severe sin at their pulpits. I can attest that gluttony brings poverty. The spirit of poverty is upon my family, I'm constantly tired, and I dress in same clothes daily. Please pray for me,

    Buy the truth, and sell it not; be willing to part with any thing for it. Do not part with it for pleasures, honours, riches, or any thing in this world. The heart is what the great God requires. We must not think to divide the heart between God and the world; he will have all or none. Look to the rule of God's word, the conduct of his providence, and the good examples of his people.

  • Gregory for verse 18
    God is always willing to supply all your needs, forget what you might be going through at the particular moment and thank Him that there is an End
  • Clydia
    Wow!very awesome!this is pure wisdom.reading proverbs is an daily requirement for my children. You can 't go wrong sharing this with your children, It backs up what we are supposed to be teaching them.They may not believe us all the time but Surely they will fear the word of God as this proverb tells us .leaving the child alone will only make them woarse and hell bound.
  • This scripture is life to me when I felt defeated!
  • Teresa
    God wants all of our heart or none at all.Sin is forbidden,the woman caught in adultery,Jesus didnt ridicule her he didnt look down on her.Jesus told her go your way and sin no more.Sin stinks in Gods nostrils,he cant work fully in u until u get sin out of ur life.Help us Lord to rid all sin thats in us,help us to seek u Lord ur righteousness,lead us and guide us, everything thats in us thats not like u Lord rid us of it Lord. Either make the tree good are make it evil. U cant serve two masters either ur gone to hate one and love the other.
  • Geraldine cole
    Praise God brother and sister when we stop and start listen to God o what a different our life become. thats when we really start living our lives when we allow Jesus in and receives his Holy Ghost who will leave and guide us to all truth Amen
  • It s not wise to wear ourselves out trying to become rich. As the Bible shows, material wealth can disappear quickly. It may vanish overnight because of a natural disaster, an economic slump, or other unforeseen occurrences.
  • BEN M ADJORNOR for verse 18
