09.13.2017 – Old Testament: Pro 23.15–16
To read the Bible in a year, read Proverbs 23–24 on September 13, In the year of our Lord 2017
By Don Ruhl
Parents want to see their children mature, and a good way to show maturity happens when we have wisdom, expressed by the things we say,
My son, if your heart is wise,
My heart will rejoice—indeed, I myself;
Yes, my inmost being will rejoice
When your lips speak right things.
Perhaps your parents will also rejoice over some other things that you could do, but undoubtedly exercising wisdom, especially in your speaking will bring them pleasure.
- Do your lips speak right things?
- Is wisdom in your heart?
- If not, what is?
