Make hay while the sun shines

There is nothing quite like the book of Proverbs. If you are looking for some guidance or godly wisdom, then look no further than this wonderful words of Solomon. I have chosen a few verses from Chapter 10 to share with you today. May they offer you insight and blessing. As you read through them, choose one of the verses for your personal meditation.

Make hay while the sun shines—that’s smart;
    go fishing during harvest—that’s stupid.
Blessings accrue on a good and honest life,
    but the mouth of the wicked is a dark cave of abuse.
A good and honest life is a blessed memorial;
    a wicked life leaves a rotten stench.
A wise heart takes orders;
    an empty head will come unglued.
Honesty lives confident and carefree,
    but Shifty is sure to be exposed.
10 An evasive eye is a sign of trouble ahead,
    but an open, face-to-face meeting results in peace.
11 The mouth of a good person is a deep, life-giving well,
    but the mouth of the wicked is a dark cave of abuse.
12 Hatred starts fights,
    but love pulls a quilt over the bickering.
13 You’ll find wisdom on the lips of a person of insight,
    but the shortsighted needs a slap in the face.
14 The wise accumulate knowledge—a true treasure;
    know-it-alls talk too much—a sheer waste.

Living in Grace
