Don't Be A Fool! #GoodMorningGirls #Proverbs

A Fool

Proverbs 17
Good Morning Girls Bible Study

Proverbs 17:7

Excellent speech becometh not a fool: much less do lying lips a prince.

Proverbs 17:10

A reproof entereth more into a wise man than an hundred stripes into a fool.

Proverbs 17:12

Let a bear robbed of her whelps meet a man, rather than a fool in his folly.

Proverbs 17:16

Wherefore is there a price in the hand of a fool to get wisdom, seeing he hath no heart to it?

Proverbs 17:21

He that begetteth a fool doeth it to his sorrow: and the father of a fool hath no joy.

Proverbs 17:24

Wisdom is before him that hath understanding; but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth.

Proverbs 17:28

Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.


Verse 17:10 stands out to me the most today

What is my response when someone calls me out on my sin?
How does a FOOL act when he is confronted with his sin?

What a great verse! There are times I really struggle when I am confronted with someone telling me I am in sin. It most hurts when it's from a close family member. The Bible tells me that a wise man will listen, consider, and make it right.

Lord, I pray that you would keep this verse in mind this week. Many times you use others to speak you word into my life. I pray that I will hear clearly and that I will repent and make things right. Thank you for the people you have put directly in my path and for the Holy Spirits guidance. In Jesus Name.

GMG Bible Study Proverbs 16 Monday July 6th 2015

The verses I picked for today.

This verse speaks to me about my thoughts. Sometimes they feel out of control. I need to COMMIT them to the Lord so that he can help me control them. 

This verse makes me think of the many times I have had conversations with my oldest about people who he thinks dislike him. When we do the 'right' thing God says even our enemies will be at peace with us. We need to stop and ask God FIRST if our ways are pleasing to Him.

We can not rely on our OWN thoughts/ways. It may look right to us but does it measure
 up to what God says? He sees through it all, he weighs our spirit.
