Proverbs 30

These are the verses that stood out for me in Proverbs 30:

Vs 5:  Every word of God is pure (tested, refined);  He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him.
God's word is truth - you CAN trust it!

Vs6:  Do not add to His words, lest He reprove you, and you be found a liar.
God's word is complete - in no need of additions!




Vs 12:  There is a generation that is pure in its own eyes, yet is not washed from its filthiness.
Often times those people who judge and despise others the harshest are the ones in most need of salvation.


Vs 32-33:  32 If you have been foolish in exalting yourself, or if you have devised evil, put your hand on your mouth. 33 for as the churning of milk produces butter, and as wringing the nose produces blood, so the forcing of wrath produces strife.
For me, these verses speak of reaping what you sow - consequences for actions taken!

What have you been sowing?
My encouragement to you today, sow good seed, so that in God you will reap a healthy harvest.

God bless

  5. Tracy,
    I love it when the OT connects so clearly with the NT. Check out 2 Timothy 3:16.

  6. Hi Tracy,

    Verse 5 is my favorite, there is so much comfort in knowing that every word He speaks is truth, and if we put our faith in Him, and trust Him he will be our shield of protection. Every word in the Bible is God breathed and it is so awesome that we have the privilege to read it.

    Blessings to you Tracy.
