ምሳሌ 19:20-21 ምክርን ስማ፤ ተግሣጽን ተቀበል፤በመጨረሻም ጠቢብ ትሆናለህ።  Proverbs 19:20-21 Listen to advice and accept instruction and in the end you will be wise. Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails.  "Man proposes, heaven disposes." Most of us rush to give advice and make grandiose plans. The Wiseman reminds us that wisdom comes from submitting to instruction for a significant period of time and then, only at the end of long listening does it come. If you are like…

ምሳሌ 16:19 በተዋረደ መንፈስ ከተጨቈኑት ጋር መሆን፣ከትዕቢተኞች ጋር ብዝበዛን ከመካፈል ይሻላል።  Proverbs 16:19 Better to be lowly in spirit and among the oppressed than to share plunder with the proud.

Christians in every era are called to defend the rights of the weak, speak up for the disenfranchised, and protect the life of those who are vulnerable. This comprehensive call is the great reminder that the blessings, rights, wealth, and power we may have is not ours alone; it is a gift from God to be used to bless those who have no power to speak, to defend, or to protect themselves.

Proverbs 3:1-2 My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity. Those who are older are not as respected in Western cultures today as they once were and as "the elders" are respected in other cultures. The Bible repeatedly reminds us of our NEED to honor those who are godly and who have gone before us. Whether the father behind this passage is the physical father of the person receiving instruction or…

Ephesians 5:15-16 Be very careful, then, how you live — not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity.  Even though we are God's holy children, we also need to be aware of what time it is in our world. The evil one still exercises his control over the hearts of many people. God wants us to "redeem the time," making the most of every opportunity we have to touch the lives of others with his grace and to resist the temptation and overcome the opposition of the evil one.

Proverbs 21:29 A wicked man puts up a bold front, but an upright man gives thought to his ways. When we harbor wickedness in our hearts, there are all sorts of "fronts" we have to keep up so people won't know the truth about us. But if righteousness is our aim, we'll try to live up to that goal with honesty. When we blow it, we'll be honest and ask forgiveness, learning from our mistakes. We won't put up a facade. We know that even though we're flawed, God is not through working on us yet!
