2’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed!
For Proverbs Chapter 3, I shall, with your permission, show you how I personally dig into the Holy Bible.
Then, going forward, if you so choose, you may study the rest of Proverbs and other sections of God's Word in this manner. Remember, we are not in a 'horse-race' when we are in His Presence, in His Word. We must set aside 'time' for the most important 'appointment' of our day.
Now, I take each segment of the 'Outline', re-read the passages, and then, read the respective commentary, being attentive to the Holy Spirit, enlightening my mind, further.
To piety, and to improve afflictions. (7-12)
SOME MAY FIND THESE TRUTHS, 'HARD SAYINGS' AND YET, MOST NECESSARY.
 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
 Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:
 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.
 My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction:
 For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.
Commentary on Proverbs 3:7-12(Read Proverbs 3:7-12) Above
There is not a greater enemy to the fear of the Lord in the heart, than self-conceit of our own wisdom. The prudence and sobriety which religion teaches, tend not only to the health of the soul, but to the health of the body. Worldly wealth is but poor substance, yet, such as it is, we must honour God with it; and those that do good with what they have, shall have more to do more good with. [Matthew 5:42; 7:2; Mark 4:24; Luke 6:30] Should the Lord visit us with trials and sickness, let us not forget that the exhortation speaks to us as to children, for our good. [Hebrews 12:3-17; James 1:2-15] We must not faint under an affliction, be it ever so heavy and long, not be driven to despair, or use wrong means for relief. The father corrects the son whom he loves, because he loves him, and desires that he may be wise and good. Afflictions are so far from doing God's children any hurt, that, by the grace of God, they promote their holiness. [John 16:33]
For more on Worldly Wealth see Job 20:15; Psalms 49:6,10; 52:7; 62:10; Proverbs 8:18; 11:4, 28; 13:11; 22:1, 2; 23:4; 27:24; 28:11; 30:8; Ecclesiastes 4:8; 5:10, 12, 14; 6:2; 10:19; Jeremiah 9:23; 17:10,11; 48:36; Ezekiel 28:5; Micah 3:11, 12; For further in the New Testament see such as Matthew 6:24;10:23; 13:22; 19:23; Mark 4:19; Luke 1:53; 6:24;12:16,21; 16:13, 19; 18:23,24; 1 Timothy 3:3; 6:10,17, 18; Hebrews 13:5; James 5:2; Revelation 18:12]
We shall continue in this manner on the remainder of the posts. I do pray that this series will help you to see how important and enjoyable studying the Word of God is, and beneficial to you, being in His Presence. Amen. Amen.
