ji_jive #proverbs27 :25-27 #27daysofwisdom the thought in these verses is continued from the last two days - riches are not forever so be diligent about what you have. Now these verses talk about the hay being removed. This is the time when winter comes in, when #food is #scarce. But if you have been diligent during the times of plenty then you will have food for the times of scarcity. It's also important to be #wise about what you #invest your #resources into - are these things going to keep giving you a return even when the going gets tough? #Time is also a resource, I believe it's more important than #money. How you use your time will determine how prosperous you are - #financially, in #wisdom and knowledge, in your #relationships. Are you investing your time in things that will bring #nourishment and #sustenance in all areas of your life during the times of #struggle? Let me tell you a #secret - the time I spend with God, learning more about Him, He gives me an abundance of #power to sustain me through hardship. He is the God of the universe who owns all wealth and has all knowledge. Be diligent in getting to know Him. Invest you time and money in His cause and when times of struggle comes, He will sustain you to get you through. He is our Great Provider. Don't be #fooled by what #society tells you to invest in!! 6mon

ji_jive #proverbs27 :24 #27daysofwisdom - money is not infinite or eternal, it runs out, gets spent. Same with a kingly position. A high rank in your job is not guaranteed for years to come. You can't depend on your current position to provide for the future or to give a secure future for your kids. The answer is in the previous verse - be diligent! about what you have. Take care of it and invest in things that are essential to life. That's the way you will keep away poverty. 6mon

ji_jive #proverbs27 :23 #27daysofwisdom : this saying may seem #oldschool because you may not be a farmer but we can still learn #wisdom from the #principle! The keyword is #diligence. The first lesson is not to be idle but to be #diligent. We need to have a job, and to use our talents and energy, not to sit in idleness. Lesson two is that we need to know and #understand what our job entails and know the state of our dealings. Keep an eye on your income and expenses so you don't live beyond your means. Be diligent in managing your life. Lesson three is to be #attentive. Know what is happening around you and especially in your job, the area that you are working in. Listen carefully to the needs that arise. Keep your eyes open so no opportunities are lost. 6mon

ji_jive #proverbs27 :22 #27daysofwisdom you can tell when a person is really a #fool by how they continue their foolishness even when they are afflicted by #hardships, it does not cause them to #correct their ways and #turn from their foolishness or wickedness. 6mon

ji_jive #proverbs27 :21 #27daysofwisdom #Praise to a person can be a refiner of their #character like heat from a furnace shapes and purifies silver and gold. How do you deal with praise? How a person responds to praises will show their character. If a person becomes #proud and conceited, taking the #glory to himself rather than giving it to God, thinking that their "name" will get them through now with out doing any hard work, will make them into a vain and #foolish person. On the other hand if we let the praise refine us - give #thanks to what God is doing in our life - take out eyes off self, be #diligent about fulfilling the expectations of the praise, making sure that you don't do things that will blemish your #reputation and in #humility continue to #serve and do good - showing that you are worthy to be praised and be made an example of so you can #inspire others to #live to their #potential. Let praise be your motivation to do you best in everything and #shine the #light that God has given you xo 6mon

ji_jive #proverbs27 :19 #27daysofwisdom - #lust can never be satiated. It always want more. It takes and takes, no matter how dangerous or wicked the scheme be. Contrast that to the feeling of #joy "I'm so happy I just want to burst!" Lust never says that, it's always scheming for more. True #joy, #peace and #love bring the feeling of# fullness and #contentment. If you want to give to life and share rather than take life and feel empty then invite #Jesus into your #heart. He will give you #fullness. He is the "bread of life" the "water of life" eat and drink from Him and will be content. Whereas the path of hell and destruction leads to greater sin and disappointment. Such works don't fill the soul. 6mon

ji_jive #proverbs27 :19 #27daysofwisdom - In order to see what your face looks like you look at a mirror. In order to know what kind of person you are look at what's at the #heart /core of you - examine your thoughts, conscience, affections and intentions - this will reveal the type of man or woman you are. 6mon

ji_jive #proverbs27 :18 #27daysofwisdom when you are #watchful over something, tending it and guarding it with your #life, you will be #blessed with the rewards of it. To "wait" on your master here means to guard and protect. If you are work #honestly and #diligently it will not go unnoticed. Even willing to guard and protect the life and reputation of your master you will be honoured. "Diligence in your work will secure a reward" What you keep and who your master is will determine your reward! #Jesus says "I have come that they may have #life and life more abundantly" "if anyone serves me, him my Father will honor" Make Jesus your master and you can be assured that your reward will be #amazing! 6mon

ji_jive #proverbs27 :17 #27daysofwisdom we can #sharpen each other for #good or for #evil. Who we hang around really matters. Are they sharpening you for good things? It also reveals that we need each other to grow. #Good #friends - open, honest, caring friends are so important. #Cherish them! When you are #unsharpened in an area of your life - a #blunt knife is #useless - they can sharpen you up :) be open to #listening and #learning. The same way you too can make a #positive #impact on others. Sharpening is to lift their #countenance. Be alert in all your dealings and conversations on how you can sharpen someone is a positive and #helpful way. Sometimes I have tried to sharpen but have been too harsh. You are not to attack them but to sharpen. Cherish your friends. 6mon

ji_jive #proverbs27 :15-16 #women listen carefully!! A #nagging, contentious woman is #annoying and frustrating like a continual dripping sound. This can drive people #insane ! If you find yourself repeating something over and over again, stop and find out why the other person is not listening or try a different approach to the situation. Don't keep on going on and on and be argumentative to win a point. No one appreciates that. And for those who have to deal with such people - trying to stop them is as impossible as trying to catch the wind or to hold back the smell of ointment/ perfume when sprayed in a room. It's best to walk away until they are calmed down. 6mon

ji_jive Day 14: this is an interesting proverb! When you pronounce blessings (the Hebrew meaning here of bless can relate to adoration) on your friend with a loud voice, first thing in the morning is a curse!! Praising/adoring people in an extravagant way can be detrimental to them. It can cause them to become full of pride or cause other people to be envious of them. #Extravagant praise and adoration belongs to God. Only He is worthy of such glory. No man can handle too much glory, it goes to their head. They start thinking they are better than others, it can cause bitterness and tension with others. So praise people in a modest, quiet way when they deserve to be thanked and acknowledged. But do not #glorify them over and above anyone else. This is actually a #curse to them as it can make them #proud and lead them to expect praise and make their heart full of pride!!! Think before you go to praise someone - will it do them more harm than good? And give #adoration only to #God 6mon

ji_jive Day 13: #proverbs27 #27daysofwisdom if you are lending money to anyone who is given into the lust of the world make sure you get a pledge or guarantee from them to pay you back. Choose wisely who you give your money too. "Foolish lending is injustice to our families" 6mon

ji_jive Day 12: #proverbs27 #27daysofwisdom if we are sensible and wise we can sense evil and danger and hide ourselves from such things. But those that lack this ability, who are naive and think on a simple level, get caught in danger and suffer with the consequences of evil. BUT God promises to those that have a simple..."the law of The Lord is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of The Lord is sure making the simple wise. 6mon

ji_jive Day 11: #proverbs27 #27daysofwisdom To every one who is a child (that is all of us! :) when you act #wisely you fill your parents heart with #joy, or those who you work under, your mentors, guardians etc. So that if anyone comes talking against you to those who are looking after you or looking out for you they can turn them away and stand up for you because they know you act wisely in all that you do. 6mon

ji_jive Day 10: #proverbs27 #27daysofwisdom Make #friends with those around you - your #neighbors. Stick with, stay close to these friends and the friends that have stuck by your family. These people are tried and tested and have remained true to you. They can provide more #genuine #counsel during a troublesome time that a blood-relation who is faraway and removed from the situation. 6mon

ji_jive Day 9: #proverbs27 #27daysofwisdom Sweet is the friend who speaks with sincere #love and gives wise #counsel. Such counsel is like #perfume on a stinking mess and a healing ointment on a bad wound. BUT are you willing to heed the counsel or are you just looking for confirmation on what you want to do? This is the #key as to how good the end result will be! To have a best #friend that you can share with and to possess a teachable #heart so that you are open to #learning will increase the #joy in your heart and #sweetness in your #life. 6mon
