"But the path of the righteous is like the bright morning light,
growing brighter and brighter until full day.
The way of the wicked is like gloomy darkness;
they do not know what causes them to stumble."

—Proverbs 4.18-19

God grows clearer as we travel the Way of Christ. What we already knew comes into sharper focus. The Spirit of the Lord teaches us through our experiences as we compare them with Scripture. The stark contrast between righteousness and wickedness increases as we see the fruits of each. We await the full day with patience and perseverance.

1. Have looked a couple of times along streets between home and the office for possible rental options. It won't be an easy move from the office.

2. A number of people liked my Practicing Proverbs post for chapter 2. Someday I'll complete the whole 31 chapters, maybe.

3. Weight has inched up a bit in the last few days. Not a happy eater.

4. Had to go downtown this morning for a chore. Takes a while to get even a few blocks. Lights, traffic, pedestrians. Now I remember why I avoid going there.

5. Does anybody else out there ever eat a breakfast-type meal at night? It's eggs and bacon time for us this evening. And The Missus's zucchini and cinnamon bread. See Item 3 above.

6. An original item:
The rocks rose like warriors' spears,
Tree limbs snaked downward to heighten their fears,
Darkness dogged their faltering backs,
The jungle swallowed their souls and tracks.

7. A Bible verse:
Deceit is in the heart of those who plot evil, but those who promote peace have joy.
Proverbs 12.20

Sounds good to me, especially with eggs from your own cluckies.

Sounds familiar.
Ditto here. We have more chickens than people now

Practicing Proverbs, chapter 2 – Forthright Press
This is an exercise we’ve done with several chapters in the book of Proverbs for our own edification. This seven-fold list might encourage you.

Wisdom (and the truth behind it) is discoverable, 1-11. We can know the truth, Jn 8.31-32. Pilate’s question, “What is truth?” has an answer.
To “call out for” discernment and “raise your voice” for understanding, 3, indicate the intensity of desire for wisdom, reinforced by verse 4. The search must be real and all-consuming, or “extreme” (now a positive quality).

Read the other five at the link above.

NEW! 7 points from Proverbs 19


#Bible #Proverbs

1. Productive days make a fellow feel good. Does God love me more because of it? Nah, but he plans and performs his will. So we can consider the good feeling as God-given.

2. Doing the poem a day in April again. This time, for the children. Ought to be fun.

3. Thought I'd try a different blogware other than WP. Was a case of doing better by sticking with what you know. Deleted it, installed WP.

4. Some see in every problem an opportunity. Others see in every opportunity a problem.

5. Being a great writer doesn't mean he'll get noticed. Some mediocre or bad writers are best sellers. Way of the world.

6. In the movie "The Martian," one of the astronaut's greatest challenges to staying alive was food. So when Jesus says, "Don't worry about what you're going to eat" (see Matthew 6), he takes on real issues.

7. God's wisdom, personified, says, "His whole world filled me with joy. I took delight in all human beings" Proverbs 8.31 NIrV.
