Proverbs 24

Proverbs 24

“By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established;
A wise man is full of strength, and a man of knowledge enhances his might,
If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small. Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,” does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it, and will he not repay man according to his work?
for the righteous falls seven times and rises again, but the wicked stumble in times of calamity. Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, and let not your heart be glad when he stumbles,
Whoever gives an honest answer kisses the lips.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭24:3, 5, 10-12, 16-17, 26‬ ‭
In studying truth and what is right we are to establish our foundation. This foundation upon which we grow our character will be tested by the evil spirits and false doctrines. The Bible tells us “but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,”
‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭3:15‬ ‭This speaks to the kind of Spirit we are to witness with. An emptying of selfish pride and an attitude of thankfulness and hope for the return of the King. We are to testify to cause others to search for themselves for the truth as it is written “and I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective for the full knowledge of every good thing that is in us for the sake of Christ.”
‭‭Philemon‬ ‭1:6‬ understanding that we are working to show true love “By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. We love because he first loved us.”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:17-19‬ ‭Have an awesome day.
