Open rebuke is better
Than love carefully concealed.
Faithful are the wounds of a friend,
But the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.
“Out of love I don’t wanna hurt ’em or embarrass ’em today.”
Is not love, but self centred and deceptive to say.
But, “EH CHALE! Bang out of order, not good or biblical in any way!”
Will point such a one in the direction of growth and repentance way.
Get wisdom! Get understanding!
Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth.
Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you;
Love her, and she will keep you.
Wisdom is the principal thing;
Therefore get wisdom.
And in all your getting, get understanding.
Stand in the Word of God
Heed His whole counsel
Let Him establish your way’
Keep your heart with all diligence,
For out of it spring the issues of life.
“Natural springs naturally spring forth mineral rich outflows from it’s natural source.
What’s at your source?
What are the substances dissolved in your heart’s discharge, oozing out of your every pore?”
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom,
And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
