Today’s reading – Proverbs 25-26
Do not exalt yourself in the king’s presence, and do not claim a place among his great men; it is better for him to say to you, “Come up here,” than for him to humiliate you before his nobles. Proverbs 25:6-7
Jesus will teach a similar lesson in the Gospel of Luke (Luke 14:7-11) as he states, “For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”
Wisdom is wisdom. Truth is truth.
Don’t let anyone convince you that it is relative.
Truth stands the test of time.
We can’t leave these chapters without also taking note:
As a dog returns to its vomit, so fools repeat their folly.
Some bits of wisdom can leave an unforgettable impression.
Somethings are just so tempting we can’t help ourselves
So next time you are tempted, remember the dog . . .
