Text of Proverbs 10c wise or foolish

  • 1.1 Gospel Baptist Tabernacle 781 Salem Road, Rossville, GA 30741 Where the Love of God abounds, everyone is welcome. Childrens Church taught by Paul and Marsha Davis during preaching. August 21, 2013

2. 2 Proverbs 10:14 Wise men lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction (ruin). How do we lay up knowledge? Listen, learn and remember. Dont talk foolishness. 3. 3 15 The rich man's wealth is his strong city: the destruction of the poor is their poverty. Most rich men put their trust in their wealth. They feel safe because they have plenty. So many poor folks think their problems would be solved by having more money. Not so! Both are deceived. 4. 4 1 Timothy 6 6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. Ecclesiastes 2 11 Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labor that I had labored to do: and, behold, all was vanity and vex- ation of spirit, and there was no profit under the sun. Contentment is a choice; a mindset. The more one has and the more he does, The more the vexation he endures. 5. 5 16 The labor of the righteous tendeth to life: the fruit of the wicked to sin. (TLB) 16 The good mans earnings advance the cause of righteousness. The evil man squanders his on sin. Do we do a drug addict or an alcoholic any good when we give them money? Does what they earn bring blessings upon them? Never! They waste it on sin. 6. 6 17 He is in the way of life that keepeth instruction: but he that refuseth reproof erreth. If you dont use a roadmap to travel you will get lost. Anyone with you will be lost too. The Holy Bible teaches us The Way to go for blessing. 7. 7 18 He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool. Two kinds of lying Hypocrisy is deceit and usually with a purpose; the hypocrite hides his hatred in hope of gain. He hopes to use that person in some way. To slander is to speak evil of someone falsely. We should speak only good. 8. 8 19 In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise. The more we talk the more the opportunity for sin: James 1 19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: 20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. 9. 9 20 The tongue of the just is as choice silver: the heart of the wicked is little worth. 21 The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom. Heart = feelings, will, and intellect. The just and wise can not only live a good life, but can also teach others how to live a good life. They study and pray to know. A fools life is a total waste. A fool may be very intelligent; wasted. 10. 10 22 The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and He addeth no sorrow with it. When a person sets out to make himself rich, he may get it, but sorrow will come with it. Donald Trump has certainly made a lot of money, but has been through two messy divorces, and is living with his third wife. He had three children with his first wife, one with his second, and one with his third. That doesnt sound like happiness to me. 11. 11 What we attain with Gods blessings does bring happiness. John 15 10 If ye keep My Commandments, ye shall abide in My Love; even as I have kept My Father's Commandments, and abide in His Love. 11 These things have I spoken unto you, that My Joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. 12. 12 23 It is as sport to a fool to do mischief: but a man of understanding hath wisdom. 24 The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him: but the desire of the righteous shall be granted. 25 As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more: but the righteous is an everlasting foundation. 26 As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to them that send him.
