Proverbs 12 “Instruction about Life”

If You Love Learning

Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof is brutish.  A good man obtaineth favour of the Lord: but a man of wicked devices will he condemn.  A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved.  A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.

The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit.  The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood: but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.  The wicked are overthrown, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand.  A man shall be commended according to his wisdom: but he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised.

He that is despised, and hath a servant, is better than he that honoureth himself, and lacketh bread.  A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel. He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding.  The wicked desireth the net of evil men: but the root of the righteous yieldeth fruit.

Wise People Take Advice

The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.  A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth: and the recompence of a man’s hands shall be rendered unto him.  The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.  A fool’s wrath is presently known: but a prudent man covereth shame.

He that speaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit.  There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.  The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.  Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellors of peace is joy.  There shall no evil happen to the just: but the wicked shall be filled with mischief.  Lying lips are abomination to the Lord: but they that deal truly are his delight.

A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness.  The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute.  Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad.  The righteous is more excellent than his neighbour: but the way of the wicked seduceth them.  The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious.  In the way of righteousness is life: and in the pathway thereof there is no death.

Good teaching comes from good learning.  Proverbs has a lot to say in reference to learning wisdom.  There are no good alternative to learning wisdom.  We are going to be wise learners or we are just going to refuse to learn and become a foolish failure.  Proverbs encourages us to make the right choice.

A person should be willing to learn, learning is an every day thing we never stop doing.  A person who refuses constructive criticism has a problem with pride and will lack at learning.  However, in order to learn you have to discipline yourself. 

Real success comes only to those who do what is right; therefore if you want that success do what is right according to GOD.  Remember GOD does see everything.    

When someone tries to take you in to a place you do know like to go with words, just give them a gentle answer.  Proverbs 15:1 says “A gentle answer turns away wrath”.  AMEN

Truth is always timely.  If you think you will be like yes for as long as life has been if you tell the truth it will guide you to where you need to be at that moment, therefore truth is timely.  Truth is also your character, be careful with you character.  God’s word is the truth.

Stop wasting what GOD has given you.

Some thinks that death leads to the unknown while GODs people knows that it leads to a pathway for a new and better life.  What life do you want to have? 

Solomon gave instruction about life.  Wickedness leads to failure and death.  Foolishness and laziness lead to ruin. Do right and you will succeed.

GOD Bless You
