Prov. 9 goodness

So this really hit me today when I choose to run to the scripture during a time of temptation. Not only was I able to escape temptation through the scripture but I got some amazing insight into an area of my life I apparently need to work on. I apparently am not considered wise. I concluded this after looking at my finances, uck, and then realized that no one comes to me with my own issues. I do suppose that that may indicate an issue with others not being wise as well. I think back though to a conversation my self and E. had a while back in which she indicated there were things she thought I needed to work on but she wouldn’t bring them to me. She was afraid of my reaction. So I conclude that I’m not very wise. Any way, heres the scripture.

Proverbs 9:4-12

The Way of Wisdom

        4 “ Whoever is simple, let him turn in here!”
      As for him who lacks understanding, she says to him,
       5 “ Come, eat of my bread
      And drink of the wine I have mixed.
       6 Forsake foolishness and live,
      And go in the way of understanding.
       7 “ He who corrects a scoffer gets shame for himself,
      And he who rebukes a wicked man only harms himself.
       8 Do not correct a scoffer, lest he hate you;
      Rebuke a wise man, and he will love you.
       9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser;
      Teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
       10 “ The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom,
      And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
       11 For by me your days will be multiplied,
      And years of life will be added to you.
       12 If you are wise, you are wise for yourself,
      And if you scoff, you will bear it alone.”
