And here we are – October 31 reading Proverbs 31. I have so enjoyed reading through Proverbs with y’all this month. I missed posting the last couple of days because, well, life. So, here are a few highlights. 😉
“One who is full loathes honey, but to one who is hungry everything bitter is sweet.” Proverbs 27:7 👉Be filled with the Word so you won’t be tempted by the world.
“Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the Lord understand it completely.” Proverbs 28:5 👉 If you’ve ever gotten frustrated over a situation, the news, etc., this verse makes total sense! Evil men do not understand justice.
“A fool gives full vent to his spirit, but a wise man quietly holds it back.” Proverbs 29:11 👉 A fool just lets it all out, y’all. A wise person holds it back.
“If you have been foolish, exalting yourself, or if you have been devising evil, put your hand on your mouth.” Proverbs 30:32 👉 If you’ve been sinning with your words – just stop. Walk around with your hand over your mouth if necessary.
Now for today’s proverb. Where we were told to shut our mouths yesterday, we are told today to open them wide in defense of the defenseless.
“Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute. Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.” Proverbs 31:8-9 👉 A huge part of wisdom is knowing when to speak and when to keep silent. Anyone else struggle with this? 🙋♀️
Thanks for joining me this month!! You are loved!
