September 14, 2022 READING A PROVERB A DAY (PROVERBS 14) Bill Elliff on Proverbs 14

Proverbs 14New Living Translation

14 A wise woman builds her home,
    but a foolish woman tears it down with her own hands.

Those who follow the right path fear the Lord;
    those who take the wrong path despise him.

A fool’s proud talk becomes a rod that beats him,
    but the words of the wise keep them safe.

Without oxen a stable stays clean,
    but you need a strong ox for a large harvest.

An honest witness does not lie;
    a false witness breathes lies.

A mocker seeks wisdom and never finds it,
    but knowledge comes easily to those with understanding.

Stay away from fools,
    for you won’t find knowledge on their lips.

The prudent understand where they are going,
    but fools deceive themselves.

Fools make fun of guilt,
    but the godly acknowledge it and seek reconciliation.

10 Each heart knows its own bitterness,
    and no one else can fully share its joy.

11 The house of the wicked will be destroyed,
    but the tent of the godly will flourish.

12 There is a path before each person that seems right,
    but it ends in death.

13 Laughter can conceal a heavy heart,
    but when the laughter ends, the grief remains.

14 Backsliders get what they deserve;
    good people receive their reward.

15 Only simpletons believe everything they’re told!
    The prudent carefully consider their steps.

16 The wise are cautious[a] and avoid danger;
    fools plunge ahead with reckless confidence.

17 Short-tempered people do foolish things,
    and schemers are hated.

18 Simpletons are clothed with foolishness,[b]
    but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.

19 Evil people will bow before good people;
    the wicked will bow at the gates of the godly.

20 The poor are despised even by their neighbors,
    while the rich have many “friends.”

21 It is a sin to belittle one’s neighbor;
    blessed are those who help the poor.

22 If you plan to do evil, you will be lost;
    if you plan to do good, you will receive unfailing love and faithfulness.

23 Work brings profit,
    but mere talk leads to poverty!

24 Wealth is a crown for the wise;
    the effort of fools yields only foolishness.

25 A truthful witness saves lives,
    but a false witness is a traitor.

26 Those who fear the Lord are secure;
    he will be a refuge for their children.

27 Fear of the Lord is a life-giving fountain;
    it offers escape from the snares of death.

28 A growing population is a king’s glory;
    a prince without subjects has nothing.

29 People with understanding control their anger;
    a hot temper shows great foolishness.

30 A peaceful heart leads to a healthy body;
    jealousy is like cancer in the bones.

31 Those who oppress the poor insult their Maker,
    but helping the poor honors him.

32 The wicked are crushed by disaster,
    but the godly have a refuge when they die.

33 Wisdom is enshrined in an understanding heart;
    wisdom is not[c] found among fools.

34 Godliness makes a nation great,
    but sin is a disgrace to any people.

35 A king rejoices in wise servants
    but is angry with those who disgrace him.


Proverbs 14, 16, 19

SLOW TO ANGER

July 15, 2019

SLOW TO ANGER

A man’s discretion makes him slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook a transgression. (Proverbs 19:11)

We’ve all experienced it. Some of us have a harder time with this than others. And, there are certain people that we have a greater struggle with in this age-old problem. Sometimes it’s those that we are closest too and love the most.

It is easy to explode. To fly off the handle. To let our anger erupt before we’ve even thought about what is happening.

DISCRETION

The writer of Proverbs says that one of the things that slows anger down is discretion. Other translations use the word “sensible.” The Hebrew word can also be translated and defined as “insight, understanding, prudence, i.e., the capacity to understand and as a result act.”

Slowness to anger is a thinking response. In other words, the man who is wise, who has understanding, who has insight, controls himself. He realizes the fruitless and even destructive nature of a quick temper and restrains himself. He understands that it accomplishes nothing of value and merely complicates the problem.

TAMING THE EMOTIONS

The fool doesn’t think. He lets his emotions totally control his response. “He who is quick-tempered exalts folly” (Proverbs 14:29). If we want to overcome this, we must grow in understanding of what explosive anger is and does. We must realize how foolish it is. By letting the Holy Spirit fill us and control our lives, we must think before we respond.

The Spirit is the One who can produce the self-control we need, but we must place ourselves–intentionally and continually–under His leadership.

OUR GREATEST GLORY

… is to overlook a transgression. To be willing to suffer in order to achieve God’s righteous responses. The one who overcomes this is seen as a great man for “He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit, than he who captures a city” (Proverbs 16:32).

We should be willing to be wronged and not take offense. When we are tempted to anger, we must take a long look at the cross. No one suffered more unjustly and forgave more unconditionally.

IT’S POSSIBLE!

We can overcome this! God could not give us these admonitions if it were not possible by His grace and the power of the Spirit within us. This should give us hope and the urgency to move intentionally to see this as a “such were some of you” issue in our lives.

We must study anger throughout the Bible. Look what it accomplishes and how destructive it can be. Become sensible and wise. Let the Spirit take greater control and when we feel anger rising (which is usually because we think someone has stepped on our rights or misunderstood or falsely accused us), we should think and pray deeply before we let any words come out of our mouths.

Uncontrolled anger is never helpful. It will do nothing but further complicate the problem. Every time we respond in anger, we are not promoting God’s righteousness, but aborting it, for the “anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God” (James 1:19-20).
