Well, I promised to do better this week with my review…I feel better today but I still don’t know if that means my review will be any better…I’ll try.
There were, again, lots of verses throughout the week that stood out and convicted me of so many things that I really need to change.
I don’t believe I disclosed last week what topic I have been concentrating on. It’s anger. I tend to have an anger problem. I can’t seem to bite my tongue when I’m feeling angry either so that’s one thing I really need to work on. My family deserves better than what I have been giving them. So, this Proverbs study has been great in showing me my foolishness.
Proverbs 6:21 tells children to “keep thier (parents) words always in your hearts.” If I am not giving my daughter anything worth keeping in her heart than I am not doing the job that God has given me. Big stuff.
So here’s another verse that stood out to me. Chapter 10:19 “Don’t talk too much, for it fosters sin. Be sensible and turn off the flow!” Yup, that’s some good advice. Keep your mouth shut, Jenn, even when you’re angry. Hard to do but so worth it.
And here’s some more Proverb-y goodness: 12:18 – “A fool is quick tempered but a wise person stays calm when insulted” I don’t even need to be insulted to know that I need to bite my tongue more often. I’m a fool.
Anyway, so much to take in. Even though I know better already, being convicted by the Holy Spirit through reading God’s word makes it all new and important…very important.
