Day of Rest 1-6-13

“A godly man is heavenly in his disposition.  He sets his affections on things above (Col. 3:2). He sends his heart to heaven before he gets there; he looks upon the world as but a beautiful prison and he cannot be much in love with his fetters, though they are made of gold.  A holy person contemplates glory and eternity; his desires have got wings and fled to heaven.”  – Thomas Watson,Godly Man’s Picture, p. 104

January: A Proverb a Day – Keeps Stupidity at Bay

Pro 6:1    My son, if you have become surety for your neighbor, Have given a pledge for a stranger,

Pro 6:2    {If} you have been snared with the words of your mouth, Have been caught with the words of your mouth,

Pro 6:3    Do this then, my son, and deliver yourself; Since you have come into the hand of your neighbor, Go, humble yourself, and importune your                         neighbor.

Pro 6:4    Give no sleep to your eyes, Nor slumber to your eyelids;

Pro 6:5    Deliver yourself like a gazelle from {the hunter’s} hand And like a bird from the hand of the fowler.

Pro 6:6    Go to the ant, O sluggard, Observe her ways and be wise,

Pro 6:7    Which, having no chief, Officer or ruler,

Pro 6:8   Prepares her food in the summer {And} gathers her provision in the harvest.

Pro 6:9    How long will you lie down, O sluggard? When will you arise from your sleep?

Pro 6:10 “A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to rest”–

Pro 6:11  Your poverty will come in like a vagabond And your need like an armed man.

Pro 6:12 A worthless person, a wicked man, Is the one who walks with a perverse mouth,

Pro 6:13  Who winks with his eyes, who signals with his feet, Who points with his fingers;

Pro 6:14  Who {with} perversity in his heart continually devises evil, Who spreads strife.

Pro 6:15  Therefore his calamity will come suddenly; Instantly he will be broken and there will be no healing.

Pro 6:16 There are six things which the LORD hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him:

Pro 6:17  Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood,

Pro 6:18 A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that run rapidly to evil,

Pro 6:19  A false witness {who} utters lies, And one who spreads strife among brothers.

Pro 6:20 My son, observe the commandment of your father And do not forsake the teaching of your mother;

Pro 6:21  Bind them continually on your heart; Tie them around your neck.

Pro 6:22 When you walk about, they will guide you; When you sleep, they will watch over you; And when you awake, they will talk to you.

Pro 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp and the teaching is light; And reproofs for discipline are the way of life

Pro 6:24 To keep you from the evil woman, From the smooth tongue of the adulteress.

Pro 6:25 Do not desire her beauty in your heart, Nor let her capture you with her eyelids.

Pro 6:26 For on account of a harlot {one is reduced} to a loaf of bread, And an adulteress hunts for the precious life.

Pro 6:27 Can a man take fire in his bosom And his clothes not be burned?

Pro 6:28 Or can a man walk on hot coals And his feet not be scorched?

Pro 6:29 So is the one who goes in to his neighbor’s wife; Whoever touches her will not go unpunished.

Pro 6:30 Men do not despise a thief if he steals To satisfy himself when he is hungry;

Pro 6:31  But when he is found, he must repay sevenfold; He must give all the substance of his house.

Pro 6:32 The one who commits adultery with a woman is lacking sense; He who would destroy himself does it.

Pro 6:33 Wounds and disgrace he will find, And his reproach will not be blotted out.

Pro 6:34 For jealousy enrages a man, And he will not spare in the day of vengeance.

Pro 6:35 He will not accept any ransom, Nor will he be satisfied though you give many gifts.
