My Understanding of the Book of Proverbs

The Book of Proverbs is about wisdom teachings on how to live righteously by God here on earth.

Wisdom was created before God laid the foundations of the earth. It teaches the importance of wisdom and knowledge. I’ve learned it is essential to know wisdom and instruction if you desire prosperity, love, and happiness of God.

God knows our every move because the ways of man are before the eyes of the lord. God sees everything we do because he created us in his image. A wise man will hear with his two ears and increase his learning. God has given us a great way to honor our parents. He tells us to listen to the instructions of our father and follow the laws of our mother. All who fear the Lord will hate evil, pride, arrogance and the evil way. Proverb 8:13.

Sometimes we tend to think too deeply into words. The word evil means immoral, sinful, wrong acts or unacceptable behavior. Wicked means evil or morally wrong.

Many people fear things of the world, not understanding the fear of the lord is the beginning of wisdom. Anyone who open their hearts to understanding will find the knowledge of God. God blesses us in all parts of life, business, health, love, and everything else here on earth. King’s reign and Princes rule by God. Durable riches and honor are with God, and he will fill your treasures. Only if you choose Gods way of righteousness not by following the sinful man ways. We can be led down the path of righteousness by trusting in God in all we do. Find the desires of your heart by learning not to your understanding.

The lord found the earth by wisdom. Sound wisdom will give your soul life, and grace will withhold you. Allow the lord to be your confidence. Exalt wisdom so she can promote you. Wise men will inherit the glory of the lord. Eating healthy and exercising will help you live physically but God has the power to multiply and increase your days. Proverb 9:11

Most people are afraid of death. According to Proverb 10:2 righteousness delivereth from death. Most people believe they must work hard nearly killing themselves not understanding that God’s blessings will make you productive according to Proverbs 10:22. It’s confirmation that a good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children according to Proverbs 13:22. Therefore we should be working on building to leave something for the next generation.

I’m thankful that my grandfather followed God’s instruction by leaving his home, boat and other valuables to pass down to generations after him. Today in the 21st century, the average person is worried about spending money on materials that are not of value and can’t be passed down to their children.

A house can be built solid through wisdom and established by understanding and knowledge according to Proverb 24:3. It is said that a man of intelligence can increase strength. The goal in life is to increase bc we are always expanding. Do not fear yourself or the unknown. Revenge is not of God. Do not say that you will treat one as they treated you. Proverb 24:29

Be careful what you fear because you can attract it. The fear of the wicked will come upon you: but the desire of the righteous shall be granted.
Proverbs 10:24 Lazy people are soon poor, and hard workers get rich. The blessings of Lord make a person productive.

I encourage all to read and study the Book of Proverbs if you truly want to increase knowledge and wisdom. It has given me a chance to get closer to God because I can be more obedient and follow his laws and commandments. According to Deuteronomy 28, we will receive the blessings of the lord, if we follow his commandments.

What about my Flaws?

My flaws is what makes me stand out. 

It is part of my being and yours too. They help me realize what I can do to better my way of living. As a married woman, I focus more on communicating with my spouse about our flaws, instead of dwelling, fighting and aurguing about the negative part. 

According to Google, Flaws is considered an imprefection. To be honests, flaws is confirmation for us because the only one I know that’s perfect is God. Don’t beat yourself or others about flaws. Work it out. Get to know each other differences in order to work out the kinks. Who said life, marriage, business or any of that would be peaches and cream?

Accept who you are. Be slow to speak and quick to listen. God gave us two ears and one mouth for a reason. Get to the root of your flaw. Where did it come from? Is it a bad habit? Can you change it or is it a natural flaw? Either way, respect, accept and love who you are. Prayer, Communication, Compromise and Understanding is the answer to relationships who are having issues working on their flaws. 

Thank God for bringing someone in my life where we both accept each other flaws. We have the courage to change the things we can and pray for wisdom to accept and know what we can’t change.
