"Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."  Hebrews 4:16

I’ve been reading Proverbs for the past month or two and I want to share 12 of my favorite verses about wisdom. These scriptures came from the first chapter and from chapters 10-14. I have paraphrased them and the parentheses are mine. If you would like the specific chapter and verse, just leave a comment.
1. Commit your work and all you do to the Lord. (Work at your job as if working for the Lord. There are a lot of blessings in doing that.)
2. Don’t follow worthless pursuits. (Hard for me since I like to waste time on my smart phone instead of making my t-shirt designs or designing jewelry.)
3. Fear (respect and revere) the Lord and His Word.
4. Guard your words; watch what you say. (What comes out of your mouth shows what’s in your heart.)
5. Always be honest.
6. Do not be prideful.
7. Be a giver, especially to the poor.
8. Don’t trust in your money, trust in God only.
9. Listen to good advice. Get counseling if needed.
10. Choose your friends wisely.
11. Think before you act. (Don’t be sorry later.)
12. Control your temper.

Do you think God gets angry when others are evil toward us? What is evil? Anything not of God. I think it does make Him angry when people are mean or cruel to His children. His word states, “Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. Romans 12:19 (NIV)

How hard is it for you not to take revenge”? Is it tempting to just say something back? Or talk about the person to someone else? Hello  🙄 

The Bible also states that we have inside us, the power that raised Jesus from the dead. “I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 1:19-20 (NLT)

There is an answer when someone hurts us. If we can leave room for God’s wrath and if we trust Him, we can forgive others just as He forgives us.
