This week we will be studying Proverbs 3. The Scripture song comes from verses 5 and 6. “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
Interpersonal relationships can sometimes be difficult. The believer in Jesus Christ has the Bible to lead them when dealing with other people. Proverbs 3:27-35 is one of those passages.
It deals with how believers should treat others.
How to deal with others (27-35)
27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.28 Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and tomorrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee.29 Devise not evil against thy neighbour, seeing he dwelleth securely by thee.30 Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.31 Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.32 For the froward is abomination to the Lord: but his secret is with the righteous.33 The curse of the Lord is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.34 Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.35 The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.
- Trust in the Lord
- Be wise
- Rest in the Lord
- Treat others with wisdom
Proverbs 3 has given us tools to be successful in our Christian life. How well are we doing?
