Proverbs 11:1-25 'Is it possible that history teaches us nothing? And that the immense past was only the weary rehearsal of mistakes that future is destined to make on a larger scale? At times we feel so, and a multitude of doubts assails us. Our knowledge of the past is always incomplete – probably inaccurate, beclouded by ambivalent evidence and biased historians, and perhaps distorted by our own prejudices and religious partisanship. Most history is guessing – the rest is prejudice.' Will Durant
An Introduction to The Book of Proverbs. Let us study together for 'divinely inspired' - 'wisdom', the 'best' for a 'successful life'. The Book of Proverbs is one of the books classified as the poetry of Scripture. Because they are all written as Hebrew Poetry, Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon all belong in the same category.

“The king’s garden.”
Mention of the king’s garden by Nehemiah brings to mind the paradise which the King of kings prepared for Adam. Sin has utterly ruined that fair abode of all delights, and driven forth the children of men to till the ground, which yields thorns and briers unto them. My soul, remember the fall, for it was thy fall. Weep much because the Lord of love was so shamefully ill-treated by the head of the human race, of which thou art a member, as undeserving as any. Behold how dragons and demons dwell on this fair earth, which once was a garden of delights.
See yonder another King’s garden, which the King waters with his bloody sweat--Gethsemane, whose bitter herbs are sweeter far to renewed souls than even Eden’s luscious fruits. There the mischief of the serpent in the first garden was undone: there the curse was lifted from earth, and borne by the woman’s promised seed. My soul, bethink thee much of the agony and the passion; resort to the garden of the olive-press, and view thy great Redeemer rescuing thee from thy lost estate. This is the garden of gardens indeed, wherein the soul may see the guilt of sin and the power of love, two sights which surpass all others.
Is there no other King’s garden? Yes, my heart, thou art, or shouldst be such. How do the flowers flourish? Do any choice fruits appear? Does the King walk within, and rest in the bowers of my spirit? Let me see that the plants are trimmed and watered, and the mischievous foxes hunted out. Come, Lord, and let the heavenly wind blow at thy coming, that the spices of thy garden may flow abroad.
Nor must I forget the King’s garden of the church. O Lord, send prosperity unto it. Rebuild her walls, nourish her plants, ripen her fruits, and from the huge wilderness, reclaim the barren waste, and make thereof “a King’s garden.” Amen. Amen.

Proverbs 1:1-5 'Here is a man manifestly sustained as well as guided by influences from heaven. The Holy Spirit dwells in him. God speaks through him. The heroism, the nobility, the pure and stainless enthusiasm at the root of his life came, beyond question, from Christ. There must therefore be a Christ, and it’s worthwhile to have such a helper and redeemer as this Christ undoubtedly is as He revels Himself to this wonderful disciple.'
–Henry H. Stanley’s description of David Livingston

Pentecost is a celebration of the day that the first Christians were filled with the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:1-4). Pentecost, which means 'fiftieth,' is celebrated 50 days after Easter and is the last day of the Easter season. It is also celebrated as the birthday of the Church! See also Matthew 3:11; baptismal by fire.
James 1:22-23 encourages all of us, men and women, to be doers of the word, for blessings. Amen. Amen.

What does the Good Lord have planned for any 'wee child'? For their best preparation, we, each parent and the 'circle' of 'family and friends', can give them no better 'preparation', than to: 'Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.' [Proverbs 22:6]

In the Old Testament, names had meanings. Pharaoh's sister, a Princess named Moses meaning 'drawn out,' because she 'drew him out of the water' (see Exodus 2:10).
God instructed Hagar to name her soon to arrive son Ishmael for a specific reason [Genesis 16:11].
The same was true with Sarah naming her son Isaac due to Abraham and Sarah's laughing [Genesis 17:19].
There are seven people that we read of in the Bible who God named before birth.
