Text: Proverbs 17:1-14

  1. Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife.

  2. A wise servant shall have rule over a son that causeth shame, and shall have part of the inheritance among the brethren.

  3. The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold; but the LORD trieth the hearts.

  4. A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.

  5. Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker; and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.

  6. Children’s children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.

  7. Excellent speech becometh not a fool; much less do lying lips a prince.

  8. A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it; whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth.

  9. He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.

  10. A reproof entereth more into a wise man than an hundred stripes into a fool.

  11. An evil man seeketh only rebellion; therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.

  1. Let a bear robbed of her whelps meet a man, rather than a fool in his folly.

  2. Whoso rewardeth evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house.

  3. The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water; therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with.

KEY VERSE: Proverbs 17:7

“Excellent speech becometh not a fool: much less do lying lips a prince.”

DAILY MANNA FOR TODAY

Jonathan Edwards wrote, “Never… say anything at all against anybody, but when it is perfectly agreeable to the highest degree of Christian honour, and of love to mankind, agreeable to the golden rule… In narrations never to speak anything but the pure and simple verity”.

Our text is a continuation of the metaphors and contrasts presented in the book of Proverbs. In today’s passage, the attitude of the foolish person is contrasted with that of the wise. A fool is said to be constantly bankrupt of sound speech. He refuses to take sound advice that could save his life and add to his knowledge and success in life. Instead, he despises good and harmless instructions and fails to learn even after being served a thousand stripes. They are said to be very difficult to deal with, like a bear robbed of her whelps and very unreasonable and impatient. On the other hand, even a servant who is wise and speaks wisely, have rule over a son, who is foolish.

Common sense, they say, is not common at all. Those who are filled with their ways often have less room for advice. They continue living and making the same mistakes all through life. They find it difficult to accept their faults. Like clowns, they keep hitting their heads against the same obstacles and oscillate around standstill object. They drive away good friends that could help bring them to sound thinking, wisdom and success.

Like Jonathan Edwards wrote, let us make resolutions about how we speak and live from today; and subject our lives to the highest standards and scriptural evaluation.


THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
You alone hold the power over your tongue.
