chronological day 150 :)

Today, we’ve got Proverbs 11, 12, and 13. Are you finding Proverbs to be reminders of what you already knew or encouragement to continue what you are doing or is this new altogether?  I guess I could say yes to a little bit of all three!

150

Solomon always presents two sides of the coin: two choices with two different sets of effects.  Like this:

“Moral character makes for smooth traveling;
    an evil life is a hard life” (Proverbs 11:5 MSG)

These are not necessarily rewards and punishments. They are more choices and consequences. If you do this, good will happen. If you do the other, do not expect good to happen.  Truth and love and peace and wisdom, though they do not seem popular, will always win out in the end.

    Received this the day after talking with an individual, and then our Midweek Adult Bible Study, about consequences versus punishments. Good word.
