Words of Wisdom

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom:

a good understanding have all they that do His commandments:

His praise endureth for ever.

Psalms 111:10

Proverbs 11 to 20   =  Counsel for All Men

♣ ♥ ♣

“False Economy” – a gift is never lost; only what is selfishly kept impoverishes.

*There exists the one that is scattering and yet is being increased;

also the one that is keeping back from what is right, but it results only in want.*

Proverbs : 11:24

“Fools” – you cannot convince a fool of his folly; only a wise man will accept rebuke

for his foolhardiness.

*The way of the foolish one is right in his own eyes, but the one listening to counsel is wise.*

Proverbs : 12:15

“Lying” – righteousness and lying are enemies; to a wicked man they are synonymous.

*A false word is what the righteous hates, but the wicked ones act shamefully and

cause disgrace for themselves.*

Proverbs : 13:5

“False Witness” – one lying tongue can cause one death or a massacre.

*A faithful witness is one that will not lie, but a false witness launches forth mere lies.*

Proverbs : 14:5

“A gentle answer turns away wrath” – two people ought not to get angry at the same time.

*An answer, when mild, turns away rage,

but a word causing pain makes anger to come up.*

Proverbs : 15:1

“Clean Sin” – a man deep in wickedness will invent “pretty names for sin”

*All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes,

but Jehovah is making an estimate of spirits.*

Proverbs : 16:2

“Ungratefulness” – a man who had received kindness and spurned the gift with

evilness will heap coals of fire upon his own bosom and family.

*As for anyone repaying bad for good, bad will not move away from his house.*

Proverbs : 17:13

“To Win Friends” – a friendly man will have friends; being a relative does not

ensure being a friend.

*There exist companions disposed to break one another to pieces,

but there exists a friend sticking closer than a brother.*

Proverbs : 18:24

“Slothfulness” – a lazy man will endanger his family and have no food for winter.

*Laziness causes a deep sleep to fall, and a slack soul goes hungry.*

Proverbs : 19:15

“Drink Up” – When you decide for strong drink, don;t be surprised when it

decides against you.

*Wine is a ridiculer, intoxicating liquor is boisterous,

and everyone going astray by it is not wise.*

Proverbs : 20:1

♠ ♣ ♥ ♦ 12 Things to Remember ♠ ♣ ♥ ♦

Ω

  • The value of time.
  • The success of perseverance
  • The pleasure of working.
  • The dignity of simplicity.
  • The worth of character
  • The power of kindness.
  • The influence of example.
  • The obligation of duty.
  • The wisdom of economy.
  • The virtue of patience.
  • The improvement of talent.
  • The joy of origination
 
 


Each of these is worth considering with

regards to how we live our lives.

How can we grow in all of these attributes?

By associating with the wise and by

respecting the Word of God.


Proverbs 16:16 puts it this way:

“How much better to get wisdom than gold!

And to get understanding is to be chosen

rather than silver.”


Only through attaining godly wisdom can

we improve how we live our lives now and

ultimately find eternal happiness in God’s

Kingdom.

where blessing and cursing comes forth

The Tongue

a vital organ for survival or an organ of ‘damning fire’.?

*** Words that heal and wound comes from the same mouth.***

“5 So, too, the tongue is a little member and yet makes great brags.
Look! How little a fire it takes to set so great a woodland on fire!
6 Well, the tongue is a fire. The tongue is constituted a world of
unrighteousness among our members, for it spots up all the body
and sets the wheel of natural life aflame and it is set aflame by
Ge·hen´na.
7 For every species of wild beast as well as bird and creeping thing
and sea creature is to be tamed and has been tamed by humankind.
8 But the tongue, not one of mankind can get it tamed. An unruly
injurious thing, it is full of death-dealing poison.
9 With it we bless Jehovah, even [the] Father, and yet with it we
curse men who have come into existence “in the likeness of God.”
10 Out of the same mouth come forth blessing and cursing.”

*NWT — JAMES : 3 : 5-10*


Speak with kindness and thoughtfulness with consideration and discretion,

as words spoken cannot be taken back,  just as it is the same with time that

cannot be wound backwards.

Reflect on these two poems ……..


An Evening Prayer
*C. Maud Battersby*

If I have wounded any soul today,
If I have caused one foot to go astray,
If I have walked in my own willful way,
Good Lord, forgive.

If I have uttered idle words or vain,
If I have turned aside from want or pain,
Lest I offend some other through the strain,
Good Lord, forgive.

Forgive the sins I have confessed to Thee.
Forgive the secret sins I do not see.
That which I know not, Father, teach Thou me—
Help me to live.

speak no words that wounds any soul

speak no words that wounds any soul

No Unkind Words
*George Matthas Adams*

If I knew that a word of mine,
A word not kind and true,
Might leave its trace on a loved one’s face,
I don’t think I’d speak it, would you?

If I knew the sting of a word
Might linger and leave its mark
With a deep dark scar on a loved one’s heart,
I don’t think I’d speak that word, would you?

speak no unkind words that stings and scars

speak no unkind words that stings and scars

*** The Battle Within ***

Two Wolves


An old Cherokee describes an experience going on inside himself….

“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.


One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity,
guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

menacing-and-evil-wolf

evil and menacing


The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness,
benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.

gentle-and-good-wolf

good and gentle

This same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather:
“Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

5 vital senses

5 vital senses .. all souls cannot do without

♥ ♥ ♥

In the seeing eye …

We stand in awe by the colorful splendor of God’s rainbows.

We are spellbound and breathless with the beauty of God’s sunsets

♥ ♥ ♥

In the hearing ear …

We resonate with the majestic crashing waves against the shore.

We lull and soothe to the sweet refrains of the melodious harp

♥ ♥ ♥

With the tasting mouth …

We are satisfied with palatable food; given as a gift from God above. 

We are understood from the words put forth in honesty and kindness.

♥ ♥ ♥

In the feeling of the hand …

We feel the textures of the earth and the clear power of water.

We touch with the give and take from the expressions of love.

♥ ♥ ♥

From the smelling of the nose …

We gravitate towards the aroma of succulent food and juicy fruits.

We are intoxicated with the perfumed notes of flowers in a bottle.

♥ ♥ ♥

Moral :

Do not take these for granted, for our five vital senses are deemed the utmost precious gifts,

for one cannot do without the other.

It should be counted and prized the highest or else if one is handicapped;

it’s deemed as one momentous casualty.
