Six prayer warriors met this morning to study Proverbs 30.
These verses provide us with guidance of respect and greed.
The PAX identified the following takeaways from today’s readings.
Proverbs 30:6 ~ Do not add to His words, lest he rebuke you and you be found a liar.
Takeaway ~ We need to intrepret God’s words for their true meaning. Do we hold ourselves accountable to God’s instructions or do we try to revise them to our favor?
Proverbs 30:11, 17 ~ There are those who curse their fathers and do not bless their mothers. The eye that mocks a father and scorns to obey a mother will be picked out by the ravens of the valley and eaten by the vultures.
Takeaway ~ It is important to honor our parents.The lack of respect for our parents breeds arrogance and eventually results in disrespect for others.
Proverbs 30:15 ~ The leech has two daughters: Give and Give. Three things are never satisfied; four never say, “Enough”
Takeaway ~ God provides to meet our needs. Pray for His wisdom and strength to avoid greed.
