    Verse 22-Parents have the responsibility to train their children, but children are expected to listen to the good advice and training from their parents.
  • BSP on Proverbs 23
    Verse 24 and 25 show that when parents have trained their children in the discipline of Jehovah God and they have children that have followed their advice, they rejoice over the outcome of their children.
  • Robert Stoltz on Proverbs 23:35
    It's actually speaking about life and obeying the Holy Spirit and God's response to His children that obey Him! While not listening to the devils lies and doing his will Shalom!
  • Simon called Peter on Proverbs 23:27
    ''For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit.''

    How do I interpret this?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Proverbs 23:27
    You can google some commentaries on this. My 2 minute take: whores are unstable; stay a away from people who devalue things that God meant to be good and within the bond of marriage.
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Proverbs 23:27
    a deep ditch you will will not get out of , a narrow pit you may have yet a chance.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Proverbs 23:27
    To Fred: excellent comment on that verse!

    I will remember that forever. Thank you.

    Verse 15-This verse shows that we have the opportunity to make God's heart glad. What we do or don't do doesn't go unnoticed by Jehovah God.
  • Christina on Proverbs 23:13
    This is one of God's law that we are supposed to honor, but people these days are so opposed to his laws and commandments because people have moved further away from God.
  • Skybounder on Proverbs 23
    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.
  • BSP on Proverbs 23
    Verse 23: to obtain the truth found in God’s Word it takes hard work and sacrifice.
  • Pastor Pjewole Philip on Proverbs 23
    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 .
  • Joseph - in Reply on Proverbs 23
    Amen Amen Amen
  • Susan on Proverbs 23
    "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.
  • BSP on Proverbs 23
    Verse 20: The Bible condemns drunkenness so it is important to be moderate in our use of alcohol.
  • James Huie Locklear on Proverbs 23
    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

  • Charlie on Proverbs 23
    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 on Proverbs 23
    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 on Proverbs 23
    For Andrea: I will keep you in prayer. Believe and know that your life is changing now!

    God bless you!

  • Andrea on Proverbs 23
    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,
  • Cindy on Proverbs 23
    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.
