Proverbs 13  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 5
Listen from:
V.1 Each verse is rich in instruction. A wise person wants to be taught. The opposite is also true. A saved person has been wise, for he has been taught. The unsaved person refuses to listen and perishes. The world can teach us nothing of true wisdom.
V.9 Those who live obediently have this experience — their heart will be happy, their testimony clear and bright.
V.13 To despise the Word of God is to bring shame on one’s self. The unbeliever will prove this.
V.19 The believing soul rejoices when the heart gets its desire. But the fool only wants to gratify the passions of the body. The three parts of a human being.
V.22 A believer who loves the Lord and obeys Him leaves a rich inheritance behind him when he departs this world. In the days of the Old Testament it would have been material things. Today it will be in the things of the Lord.
V.24 It is not love to let a child do what it wants. The generation growing up now is showing the results of self-will going unchecked — so-called self-expression. The world is plunging into violence.
