Good evening y’all. Today we are studied chapter 25 of Proverbs.
Be blessed 🙂
Proverbs 25: 4
“Silver must be purified before it can be used to make something of value”.(CEVUS06).
Just like silver has to be purified before it can be used, so we also have to be purified by God so we can be useful vessels in His hands.
2 Tim 2:20-21 says: “In a wealthy home some utensils are made of gold and silver, and some are made of wood and clay. The expensive utensils are used for special occasions, and the cheap ones are for everyday use. If you keep yourself pure, you will be a special utensil for honorable use. Your life will be clean, and you will be ready for the Master to use you for every good work” (NLT).
Proverbs 25:9 -10
“When you and someone else can’t get along, don’t gossip about it. Others will find out, and your reputation will then be ruined” (CEVUS06).
Ok, I’m double covering my eyes. This is deeeeeeep. So guilty of this offense. If someone hurts me, I’m gonna tell as many people about it as i can. I’ve never really thought about it as gossip but reading this verse has got me rethinking…this might actually be gossip! what’s the motive behind going round telling everyone about it?
“Losing self-control leaves you as helpless as a city without a wall” (CEVUS06).
Self control is very key. That’s why it’s one of the fruit of the spirit. If we don’t have self control, we are exposed. Anything is allowed to come in and go as they like.
May we all be vessels unto honour in the hands of God. With His help, may we learn to use our mouth wisely to spread the gospel and not gossip; and to exercise self control.
Thanks for joining today. Please feel free to share your thoughts on the chapter.
Have a blessed evening 🙂
