The book of Proverbs, penned by Solomon, is a collection of short sayings that express truths for practical, Godly living. This particular proverb points to work as a path to profit, whether laboring with one’s head or hands. Here are some examples:
- w Mere talk and noise only produces poverty.
- The wisdom of the wise is their crown, versus the folly of
fools, which yields unsoundness.
- Life depends on truthfulness and when lies override the
truth, deceitfulness can appear authentic.
- When the Lord is feared with reverence, even their descendants find refuge.
To fully understand the meaning of Proverbs, seek the Lord,
and wisdom will follow.
Sometimes, it only takes a few wise words to change recklessness into refuge. Are you choosing wisely?
