Bible In One Year-Day 197 (Wednesday, July 16, 2014)
Commentary: Proverbs10-12. These chapters clearly relay the attributes of the wise and those of the fool. A man is regarded as a fool or the wise only by the fruit of his mouth.
Proverbs 12:18-20 “There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellors of peace is joy.”
Every verse in these chapters shows the path of life and that of destruction. We are left to make choice. Where we end up after death is a matter of choice. There is no one who reads and commits the words of wisdom in the book of proverbs into his heart ever remain foolish. Mark you, not only reading but committing into your heart to observe and to do.
Isaiah 1:19 “If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:”
Jesus is our wisdom. When you let His words enter you, you have allowed Him in your heart and if you obey His word with your HEART, you give your life to Him and people see a new life in you and are amazed for the type of wisdom that comes from you. This is because the life you now live is not yours but Christ’s.
John 8:12 “Then spoke Jesus again to them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
You could have the whole of the Bible in your head but if not committed into your heart, it remains as ordinary stories and carries no fire or power even if you use it to pray; demons are not moved by this. Jesus is the total package of all you could become in life and all that God desires from you.
1 Corinthians 1:30-31 “But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made to us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.”
Let us seek for the old path where we could find rest. Let us listen to the trumpet’s sound, wherewith we could escape the calamity to come. Our reading for today is Proverbs13-15. Keep the fire burning and alive.
Proverbs 12:4 “A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.”
