Soooo many great truths from Prov.27. So hard to get one idea.
1. DO NOT BOAST ABOUT TOMORROW
Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.
2. DO NOT PRAISE MYSELF
Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; someone else, and not your own lips.
3. JEALOUSY IS SOME SERIOUS STUFF
Anger is cruel and fury overwhelming, but who can stand before jealousy?
4. WOUNDS FROM A FRIEND ARE SO IMPORTANT
Better is open rebuke than hidden love. 6 Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses.
5. DO NOT STRAY FROM HOME
Like a bird that strays from its nest is a man who strays from his home.
6. I LOVE EARNEST COUNSEL FROM FRIENDS
Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of one’s friend springs from his earnest counsel.
7. DON'T LOUDLY BLESS IN THE MORNING
If a man loudly blesses his neighbor early in the morning, it will be taken as a curse.
8. LOOK AFTER THOSE IN AUTHORITY OVER ME
He who tends a fig tree will eat its fruit, and he who looks after his master will be honored.
9. ARE MY HEART AND FACE IN ALIGNMENT?
As water reflects a face, so a man’s heart reflects the man.
10. I AM TESTED BY PRAISE
The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but man is tested by the praise he receives.
11. KNOW THE CONDITION OF OUR WEALTH & ASSETS
Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds; 24 for riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for all generations. 25 When the hay is removed and new growth appears and the grass from the hills is gathered in, 26 the lambs will provide you with clothing, and the goats with the price of a field. 27 You will have plenty of goats’ milk to feed you and your family and to nourish your servant girls.
