Proverbs 8:17-22, 32-36

Proverbs 8:17-22 “I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me. Riches and honor are with me, enduring wealth and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, even fine gold, and my yield than choice silver. I walk in the way of righteousness, in the paths of justice, granting an inheritance to those who love me, and filling their treasuries. “The Lord possessed me at the beginning of his work, the first of his acts of old.”

Proverbs 8:32-36 “And now, O sons, listen to me: blessed are those who keep my ways. Hear instruction and be wise, and do not neglect it. Blessed is the one who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting beside my doors. For whoever finds me finds life and obtains favor from the Lord, but he who fails to find me injures himself; all who hate me love death.”

  • Are you truly searching and asking for the wisdom that comes from God?
  • Do you realize the consequences of not seeking Godly wisdom?

James 1:5-8 “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.”

Proverbs 15:16

Proverbs 15:1

“A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” We have total control of how we talk to others. We must choose to either honor God or to remain prideful and self-righteous. May God be glorified in our responses. Do your answers induce anger or turn people from it? Matthew 12:34 “…..For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.” Proverbs 14:10 “Each heart knows its own bitterness, and no one else can share its joy.” Psalm 139:23-24 “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Proverbs 15:18 “A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, but he who is slow to anger quiets contention.” Proverbs 15:28 “The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer, but the mouth of the wicked pours out evil things.” James 1:19-20 “Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.” Dear Lord, please guide us to be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger.
