Game Plan: Humility & Praise

Game Plan: Humility & Praise

12 prayer warriors met this winter morning to study Proverbs 27.

These verses provide guidance of counsel, humility and praise.

The PAX identified the following takeaways from today’s readings.


Proverbs 27:6 ~ Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy.

Takeaway ~ Good friends provide us with advice that helps us but it sometimes hurts to hear their perspective . Wicked people offer poor advice that sounds good. Listen to your friends even if their advice is not what you do want to hear.


Proverbs 27:7 ~ A person who is full refuses honey, but even bitter food tastes sweet to the hungry.

Takeaway ~ Arrogant people tend to ignore the advice of others which impacts their ability to uncover blind spots. Continue to hunger for the counsel of others who walk in God’s wisdom.


 Proverbs 27:21 ~ Fire tests the purity of silver and gold, but a person is tested by being praised.

Takeaway ~ We can tell a lot about a person’s character by observing how they respond to praise. Glory hounds take and steal credit for various things. Good leaders redirect praise to others who contributed to their success, starting with God.
