Proverbs 11:28

Do you watch Iron Chef? I, for one, really just do not like tv. But I allow Seth to watch some mom-approved shows of an evening. One show that Seth loves is Iron Chef. I was watching the judging part a couple of nights ago and it reminded me of our study of Proverbs. Those judges took little bites, savoring each piece. This episode happened to be about some kind of fish from Hawaii. The judges would take a bite, move it around in their mouths, purposefully finding each and every taste, spice, and finally would savor and enjoy the meat. Then they would discuss the bite. What did they taste; what did they feel?

This is the same as we are doing in this study of Proverbs. I love that we are taking little savory bites. I hope that you are taking the time to take each verse apart. Look for all the different 'spices' so to speak. Ultimately look for the meat. Chew on it, savor it, gain strength from it.

What is the meat of verse 28?

Can't view the photo? It is the remnants of a large fire. Everything is gone.
Except one lone flowering plant. She is beautiful and all dressed in pink. 
I think her name might be Righteousness.

My Bible references Job 31:24-28.
When I read it, my reaction was "WHOA!!" Then it referenced Ps 1:3
And my reaction was "Wow!"

Making God's word and His will our priority, will keep us strong with deep roots. Like the song says, "We shall not be moved." If we put our trust in wealth, how easily we can be blown away by any little wind of trouble.

I love Psalm 1. Don't you? It is a great group of verses to memorize because it is a great encouragement to me; and a reminder as well to keep my focus where it should be. (ps 1:2)

This is one of my favorite passages in the whole Bible.

Hear, hear! Psalm 1 is well worn in my those verses. They encourage me so much. I truly enjoy taking small "bites" and really exploring the meanings of the verses. Sometimes when I try to more than one or two at a time, I start feeling rushed, and I never want to rush when I'm knee-deep in His word.
