Two shall become One ~ Let’s not be fools…


Sue over at Praise and Coffee is sharing an awesome devotion today for Two shall become One!

Please take the time to check it & read through her thoughts!

 Let’s not be fools

The Bible I use: The Living Application NIV Study Bible shares a chart on p.1009, I thought is completely helpful here:

The Wise The Foolish Proverbs
Characteristics Help others with good advice Lack judgment 10:21
Enjoy wisdom Enjoy foolishness 10:23
Cautious with reason Gullible 14:15
  Avoid the wise 15:12
Seek Knowledge Feed on foolishness 15:14
Value wisdom above riches   16:16
Receive life Receive punishment 16:22
Respond to correction Do not respond to punishment 17:10
Pursue wisdom Pursue illusive dreams 17:24
  Blame failure on God 19:3
Profit from correction An example to others 19:25
  Proud and arrogant 21:24
  Scorn wise advice 23:9
  Make truth useless 26:7
  Repeat their folly 26:11
Trust in wisdom Trust in themselves 28:26
Control their anger Unleash their anger 29:11
Reputation Admired as counselors Beaten as servants 10:13
Rewarded with knowledge Inherit folly 14:18
  Cause strife and quarrels 22:10
  Receive no honor 26:1
Keep peace Stir up anger 29:8
Results Stay on straight paths Go the wrong way 15:21
  Lash out when discovered in folly 17:12
  Endangered by their words 18:6, 7
Their wisdom conquers other’ strength   21:22
Avoid wicked paths Walk a troublesome path 22:5
Have great advice   24:5
  Will never be chosen as counselors 24:7
  Must be guided by hardship 26:3
  Persist in foolishness 27:22

 We all need to continue to be careful with our words and remember:

A gentle answer turns away wrath,
     but a harsh word stirs up anger. 
                                                                      Proverbs 15:1

Agreeing with Sue that we need to make sure we’re honoring our husbands/others:

It is to a man’s honor to avoid strife,
     but every fool is quick to quarrel.
                                                                    Proverbs 20:3

23Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. 24And the Lord’s servant must not quarrel; instead, he must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. 25Those who oppose him he must gently instruct, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, 26and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.
                                                         2 Timothy 2: 23-26

Better a dry crust with peace and quiet
     than a house full of feasting,  with strife.
                                                                  Proverbs 17:1

Recommend reading through Proverbs 31 – The Wife of Nobel Character!

God Bless… HL
