Jul. 8. “Hezekiah’s” Proverbs Concluded

Prov. 29:1-27

One of the “Christian graces” found in the writings of the apostle Peter is self-control. As he continued contrasting good and evil, Solomon also showed results from a lack of self-control. He stated that a “fool vents all his feelings” and that there is more hope for a fool than for a man who is “hasty in his words.” Righteousness and wisdom are preferred over wickedness and foolishness. Other proverbs stress the importance of proper training of children and in trusting God instead of man.
