09.13.2019 – 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 2019
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.
– Proverbs 23.15–16
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?
