Proverbs

I wore a lovely hat and pretty necklace to church today. It rained, and my hat and necklace seemed bright and happy against the greyness of the sky.

I came home to do my Bible project and immediately stumbled upon these words:

"My child, obey the teachings of your parents, and wear their teachings as you would a lovely hat or a pretty necklace." Proverbs 1:8-9

We must wear our wisdom and our faith as if they were bright, shining necklaces and beautiful, lovely hats... And then they will shine into the darkness. :)












A few more selections from my reading that I absolutely loved were:
"Singing to someone in deep sorrow is like pouring vinegar in an open cut." Proverbs 25:20

"Good news from far away refreshes like cold water when you are thirsty." Proverbs 25:25

"Don't eat too much honey or always want praise." Proverbs 25:27

"Gold and silver are tested in a red-hot furnace, but we are tested by praise." Proverbs 27:20

"But you must defend those who are helpless and have no hope." Proverbs 31:8

"With her own hands she gladly makes clothes." Proverbs 31:13

"And she always works hard." Proverbs 31:17

"She does her own sewing, and everything she wears is beautiful." Proverbs 31:22
