“The king's wrath is as the roaring of a lion; but his favour is as dew upon the grass.”
Wisdom allows us to willingly submit to authority.
It is wise to often evaluate how we respond to our leaders.
“A foolish son is the calamity of his father: and the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping. House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the LORD.”
Foolishness brings heartbreak to a family, whereas Wisdom allows God’s favour and blessing. The consequences of our actions do not stop with us; it is wise to consider how those closest to us will be affected by our choices.
“Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.”
The slothful waste time dreaming instead of laboring. Scripture tells us that we must work if we expect to eat. Our souls need nourishment to thrive just as much as our bodies desire food to survive.
Do you willingly submit to authority?
Are you willing to suffer the consequences of your actions?
Have you allowed your soul to become slothful?
Examine your heart today.
