Time with God- Proverbs




Read along with me on Sundays From the bible The book of
Proverbs from the Message.


A Manual for Living

1-6 These are the wise sayings of Solomon,

David's son, Israel's king—

Written down so we'll know how to live well and right,

to understand what life means and where it's going;

A manual for living,

for learning what's right and just and fair;

To teach the inexperienced the ropes

and give our young people a grasp on reality.

There's something here also for seasoned men and women,

still a thing or two for the experienced to learn—

Fresh wisdom to probe and penetrate,

the rhymes and reasons of wise men and women.


Start with God

7 Start with God—the first step in learning is bowing down to God;

only fools thumb their noses at such wisdom and learning.



8-19 Pay close attention, friend, to what your father tells you;

never forget what you learned at your mother's knee.

Wear their counsel like flowers in your hair,

like rings on your fingers.

Dear friend, if bad companions tempt you,

don't go along with them.

If they say—"Let's go out and raise some h___.

Let's beat up some old man, mug some old woman.

Let's pick them clean

and get them ready for their funerals.

We'll load up on top-quality loot.

We'll haul it home by the truckload.

Join us for the time of your life!

With us, it's share and share alike!"—

Oh, friend, don't give them a second look;

don't listen to them for a minute.

They're racing to a very bad end,

hurrying to ruin everything they lay hands on.

Nobody robs a bank

with everyone watching,

Yet that's what these people are doing—

they're doing themselves in.

When you grab all you can get, that's what happens:

the more you get, the less you are. 



My thoughts: This passage reminds me of the recent attack of  a

New York bus monitor. Several 12-13 year olds began bullying her

on their bus ride to school. At one point she was driven to tears.

It is said this women is in her 60's . No matter her age treatment such

as this is despicable. The children then posted their terrible treatment of

this women on U-tube. For a moment these  they forgot what their parents

may have taught them. They Gathered with the crowd . They were

tempted by friends and Lost.  They listened for a second and raced to the

bad end. I did watch the video and it has stuck with me for several days.

I hope that these boys have learned a valuable lesson.  Parent should
discuss this incident with their children so they can learn.

That they can see from the word of God the way they

should live. The way we all should live. It is written for us to see.

We just need to look.


Warm Blessings,

Nikki
