I am skipping a bit in my Proverbs, but this is where I was this morning in my daily readings. I find the beginning of this chapter interesting, especially the final verse I am sharing. On Sunday, James pulled out all of the corn and sunflower stalks. Actually the verb should be dug. They were a bit huge this year. He tilled up the ground as best he could in readiness for next season, which we have promised ourselves is a year of dormancy. I just hope we can stick to that resolution. Here is what I found today in Proverbs.
- Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler, and whoever is led astray by it is not wise.
- The dread anger of a king is like the growling of a lion; anyone who provokes him to anger forfeits life itself.
- It is honorable to refrain from strife, but every fool is quick to quarrel.
- The lazy person does not plow in season; harvest comes, and there is nothing to be found.
Have a wonderful day. We are looking for temperatures to be in the low 60’s (F) today. Cool, but nice. Currently the sun is shinning and Tigee has made her way to sleep in the grass outside. Hurrah!!
