Just to review, then. Although I will not do this for every chapter, I want to give you an example of how to 'dig deep', in the Holy Scripture. It is more than 'just reading' a chapter. 'Feast', 'meditate' or 'chew it like a cow chews the cud', 'laying down, thinking about it, over and over'. Reflect upon the Holy Word in 'LOVE and Gratitude' for God.
For more on the Book of Proverbs, do see the 'Sunday/Wednesday Series' posting 'in this Room' since May 23, 2018 and will be continuing through the end of Proverbs.
A Bi-Monthly Saturday 'Review' Series, Proverbs Chapter 1, Post 1, Saturday, June 16, 2018;
Post 2, Saturday, June 30, 2018; Post 3, Saturday, July 14, 2018; Post 4, July 28, 2018
Again, Proverbs Chapter 1 Verses 1 - 7
1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;
2 To know wisdom and instruction; To perceive the words of understanding;
3 To receive the instruction of wisdom, Justice, and judgment, and equity;
4 To give subtilty to the simple, To the young man knowledge and discretion.
5 A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; And a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:
6 To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; The words of the wise, and their dark sayings.
7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: But fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Throughout the Book of Proverbs, Let the Light of God's Word Help YOU 'Choose in Which of the Two Audiences' YOU are Standing.
We see in Proverbs Chapter 1 that this book is written to two different audiences:
In contrast to the 'hearing audience', [Post 2, June 30, 2018], verse four is written to those who “will give” prudence, knowledge, and discretion. This verse addresses the 'teacher' or 'mentor' or 'parent' and exhorts him to impart wisdom to the simple or naive and gullible youth so that they might become shrewd. The final four posts in this 'series' will be dedicated to this purpose, if you do not mind. [2-Part Posts 3a-b, July 14; 2-Part Posts 4a-b, July 28, 2018] And then, verses 5-7 will be between you and the Lord.
Remember Proverbs 22:6, 'train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.' Further, '10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, 11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.' [2 Timothy 3:10-17 KJV]
However a person is acting as they go through life, it is from the early impressions of life. Who were their 'mentors', 'teachers', 'parent' figures'? They have either chosen to learn and heed 'righteous instructions', or, to reject it; or, they have not had such instructions, and they are leading lives by their own 'wits'. Thus, for good or evil, this Proverb 22:6, and 2 Timothy 3:10-17 occurs. For, from youth, impressions have lasting impact on our lives, whether we have received the 'Word' or only the 'theories' or 'practices, habits and impressions', or 'philosophies', of 'educators', 'politicians', 'from the streets', 'television', or others on any topic, on any 'subject' of 'mortal men'.
Search the Holy Bible for yourselves. [Acts 17:11] As it is written, 'Why do you think evil in your heart?' [Matthew 9:4] And again, 'For out of the heart come evil...' [Genesis 6:5; 8:21; Proverbs 6:14; Matthew 15:15-19; Mark 7:17-23; Luke 6:45; 16:15; Galatians 5:19-21; 1 Thessalonians 4:3; 1 Peter 4:3; 2 Peter 2:14] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.htlm
Then, this evening, Post 3b shall post for your total study during the next two weeks, prayerfully, in the Presence of the Lord. Amen. Amen.
