Solomon has more wisdom to share with us today! Let’s read Proverbs 25, 26, 27, 28, and 29. Can you draw anything out to apply to today? The Bible is living Word – we ought to live in the knowledge He gives to us.
“When good people run things, everyone is glad, but when the ruler is bad, everyone groans.” (Proverbs 29:2 MSG)
So true. Solomon is speaking from direct experience – though his father David was a great king, Solomon had opportunity to witness ungodly and unjust rulers.
One proverb that really stood out to me today was:
“The fear of human opinion disables; trusting in GOD protects you from that.” (Proverbs 29:25 MSG)
Sometimes we get “afraid in advance” – nothing has even happened yet, but we are afraid of what might happen. With God, we can be confident – with Him, all things are possible and all roads lead to restoration. That’s a comfort!
