The second verse talks about self-praise. If I came to tell you that I'm such a nice person, very jovial and cheery versus someone else saying the same thing about me, doesn't it make sense that you'd give more credence to the other person?
but jealousy is even more dangerous.
This verse spoke to me because of the different attributes given to Anger, Wrath, and Jealousy. You would think that jealousy isn't as bad as wrath, but the Bible tells us different. Food for thought.
And everyone who isn't a morning person say - PREACH IT!!!!! I'm one of those people :p Why are you being loud in the morning?!?!?!?!?! Like, calm down! Yes, I can hear you. No, I don't want to have a conversation. Talk to me after 9am.
so a friend sharpens a friend.This one's a very popular verse, and I think so true. Your true friends should make you sharper, better, help you improve, develop and grow. It can be financially, spiritually, emotionally, mentally, relationally, etc.
than to be dishonest and rich.
I think this is because if you're dishonest, you'll perpetually be worried that someone will find you out. You can't have peace like a person who's honest and has done things the right way.
By the law, does it mean the law of God, or the laws of the land? Because if it's the laws of the land, then I'm sorry for 97% of Nigerians, myself included. Yes, last week, I drove on the side of the road because I was sick of the traffic :p
far more than flattery.
That's all for this post folks! 29/30 later today, then 31 tomorrow and we're done!!!
Have a loverly week :)
