The cold is just an excuse not to work. 1.  The Father expects us to be wise in business.  Being a Christian, and loving people, does not mean that we should be gullible and stupid. his own good traits. A son is advised against the influence of sinners. Closing Confession:  Father, I thank You for this reminder.  For my words to be important to You and to Your angels, I know they must first be important to me. In chapter 22:17 and 24:23 the proverbs (contained in the sections following these verses) are called "words of the wise". Closing Confession:  Father, I know that I will reap whatever I sow and that my life is a grand-sum-total of my decisions, therefore, I declare, by faith, that I will give my decisions an amount of deliberation that is commensurate with their importance.  For those decisions that are major, I will involve other great and Godly minds and carefully consider their input.  I refuse to make major decisions in a vacuum.  My willingness to hear from You and from others will help me make decisions that will bring glory to Your name and peace and prosperity to all those that will be affected by them.  Thank You for leading me Father.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen! Not only, Keep them, and you shall live; but, Keep them as those that cannot live without them. So what does this mean to you today? In Jesus’ name.  Amen! Eph. 1 Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding. In the book of Job, Zophar drives home this message loud and clear, saying: “Since the time of creation, everyone has known that sinful people are happy for only a while.  Though their pride and power may reach to the sky, they will disappear like dust, and those who knew them will wonder what happened.  They will be forgotten like a dream and vanish from the sight of family and friends… Sinners love the taste of sin; they relish every bite and swallow it slowly.  But their food will turn sour and poison their stomachs.  Then God will make them lose the wealth they gobbled down… Their hard work will result in nothing gained, because they cheated the poor… Greedy people want everything and are never satisfied.  But when nothing remains for them to grab, they will be nothing.  Once they have everything, distress and despair will strike them down, and God will make them swallow his blazing anger… The heavens and the earth will testify against them” (see Job 20).  Wow.  Zophar said a mouthful as he painted a vivid picture of the deceitfulness of sin. 19. Do you grasp this rule of wisdom and the lessons it teaches? Greater Is Coming (Pt.27) Friends Keep You Going. Greater Is Coming (Pt.20) This is YOUR Moment! Closing Confession:  Father, I thank You for setting high standards and for blessing me to meet them and enforce them.  I don’t lower my standards for the world.  I am thankful for the position I hold and the disposition I maintain.  I will lead with character and integrity.  I correct those who need correction, I will punish those who merit punishment, and I will publically reward those who earn recognition.  I walk in love, but that does not mean that I have to be gullible or naïve. the heart of kings is unfathomable. but lips that speak knowledge are a rare jewel. No one Trying to run a person's merchandise down to buy it, is what?  If you save him, you will have to do it again.” As I commented on that verse I said: “When you love someone and you see him or her in trouble your immediate reaction is to help get him or her out.  However, Solomon teaches us here that there is a level of goodness in allowing someone to deal with the repercussions of their actions… we have to allow them to pay for what they have done, because if we do not, they will find themselves in that situation again and we will have to continue to rescue them.  What it comes down to is this: If you get someone out of a bind, but you fail to change their mind, then it is only a matter of time before they do it again.  Mind renewal is the key.”  And therein lies the point of this morning’s message.  For you to submit to the process of mind renewal, you must FIRST have a desire to change.  The problem is that many people never develop the desire to change until they endure a truly painful experience.
