PROVERBS 12:19-22

MAY 10, 2015

The book of Proverbs consists of many small bits and pieces of wisdom passed down from King Solomon to his people during his reign. Proverbs was written in a way that the interpretation for each little piece could be taken in a different way depending on the circumstances which has allowed these bits of wisdom to stand the test of time and still be viable today. The whole book doesn’t flow well together but should rather be read in small pieces at a time. Proverbs 12:16-22 don’t flow perfectly well together but are some of the verses I try to keep in mind throughout the day. Proverb 12:16-22 holds a main theme of dealing with the dishonest. It says:
16 The vexation of a fool is known at once, but the prudent ignores an insult. 17 Whoever speaks the truth gives honest evidence, but a false witness utters deceit. 18 There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing 19 Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue is but for a moment. 20 Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil, but those who plan peace have joy. 21 No ill befalls the righteous, but the wicked are filled with trouble. 22 Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, but those who act faithfully are his delight. The author of Proverbs was very good at using literary devices to make a mental picture for the reader. He uses terms such as “lips” instead of mouth to make his point clearer and more impactful. The rough point of these verses is that lying is bad. You can see that in 12:19 when it says “truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue is but for a moment” also in 12:22 it says “Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD.” These two verses keep it simple basically don’t lie because those who don’t will endure forever. However, if we expand our focus to the section of scripture Proverbs 12:16-23 it…...

Case 19

...Case 19: FreshDirect Is It Really Fresh?* With a bold promise on its website entry page, FreshDirect claimed, “Our food is fresh, our customers are spoiled…. Order on the web today and get next-day delivery of the best food at the best price, exactly the way you want it, with 100 percent satisfaction guaranteed.”1 However, recently many consumers have questioned the freshness of the food delivered by FreshDirect. Since online shopping does not give the chance for customers to feel and choose the products themselves, they must rely completely on FreshDirect to select the food for them. This notion has not appealed to some customers. Operating out of its production center in Long Island City, Queens, FreshDirect offers online grocery shopping and delivery service to more than 300 zip codes in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Nassau County, Riverdale, Westchester, select areas of Staten Island, New Jersey, and parts of Connecticut. FreshDirect also offers pickup service at its Long Island City facility, as well as corporate service to selected delivery zones in Manhattan and summer delivery service to the Hamptons on Long Island. When it was launched in July 2001 by Joseph Fedele and Jason Ackerman, FreshDirect pronounced to the New York area that it was “the new way to shop for food.” This was a bold statement given that the previous decade had witnessed the demise of numerous other online grocery ventures. However, the creators of FreshDirect were confident in the success...

Diligence in Proverbs to apply some of these terms and to give terminology to the way we should be living against. The Essence of the Old Testament: A Survey is very clear about laziness, “Lazy behavior results in poverty while diligence results in wealth” (Hindson, 2012). Hindson (2012) describes laziness as being produced by talking and not working toward earning wealth. This description is also described as having lazy people lead into poverty. Proverbs 13:4 (English Standard Version) explains God’s desire to not be lazy, “The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied”. Obviously by this description God desires us to be diligent. Hindson (2012) describes the diligent as becoming wealthy by their work. We are reminded that we should not be taken over by the yearning for this wealth and that the wealth we gain must not be corrupt. God states that those who gain wealth this way will be judged. “Whoever oppresses the poor to increase his own wealth, or gives to the rich, will only come to poverty” (Proverbs 22:16, ESV). Hindson (2012) nicely words this, “some are rich because of greed and corruption while others are blessed by God and their own diligence”....

Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Song of Solomon

...PROVERBS, ECCLESIASTES AND SONG OF SOLOMON By: C. Bryan ESSAY SUBMITTED In Fulfillment of the Final Requirement For Series 14 At the Pillar of Truth Bible Institute October 5, 2014 First, I want to outline or list some of the demographics of Proverbs. Proverbs is the 20th book in the Bible and the 20th book in the Old Testament. It contains 31 chapters. There were at least four authors of this book. The main author of Proverbs was Solomon. Other writers were Agur, Lemuel and Hezekiah. While there is extensive information about Solomon in the Bible there is little or no Biblical information about Agur or Lemuel. Solomon was the son of King David. The writing of and completion of Proverbs took place somewhere around the year 800 B.C. Proverbs is a book of wisdom and gives us guidance on how we should live our daily lives. For example it instructs us on how to relate to God, our families and others including the people who have been given authority over us such as our elected government officials. Proverbs is like an “operator’s manual” or a hand-book for us to live by. It also teaches us in areas of our life such as pride, the way we talk, the way we work or refuse to work. Additionally, it teaches us about love, lust, anger, the use of intoxicating substances, service to others and even life and death. It outlines our duty to God. We are to trust, praise and worship God in everything we do or say. In our daily living and even in our thoughts....

Proverbs 31 Woman

...Proverbs 31: The Assumptions and What We Should Learn From Her A normal assumption of the Proverbs 31 woman is a woman who is perfect. A woman who has her whole life put together, is simply astonishing in every way, and is surprisingly a woman that many Christian women dread to read about. What makes this woman so significant is not that she knows how to cook, clean, care for her children, and work hard, it is her wisdom that shines through and her fear of the Lord that makes her a woman of virtue. Other people have speculations of the Proverbs 31 woman; being too feministic, figuratively speaking on what a woman should and should not be, and trying to create a cookie cutter woman that is seen as perfect. Proverbs 31 is a great chapter, yet why do so many hate on it? Most people know about the Proverbs 31 woman, but most people actually don’t know the real story of the man behind this. The content of this chapter was written by a mother to her son, King Lamuel, who most people believe to be King Samuel. So if it was King Samuel than that means that the mother was Bathsheba, also the wife of King David. Proverbs 31 was actually meant for men, not necessarily women. It’s the man’s responsibility to find this woman who is rare to find because she is a jewel among many stones that symbolize the worldly women. Proverbs 31 was meant to be memorized for Jewish men. Yet many Christian women seem to cringe when reading Proverbs 31 because of the feeling of inadequacy. Some even......

...Many of the eternal truths in the Bible have to be carefully mined up, like precious gems and stones deep underground. The book of Proverbs, however, is like a mountain stream littered with nuggets, just waiting to be grabbed. And many of these nuggets are wisdom. The book of proverbs consistently presents the sluggard as a folly and the diligent person as wise. In following the lifestyle of a diligent wise man or one of a lazy fool is presented throughout the readings of Proverbs. “All wisdom, even things related to everyday practical matters, begins with the fear of the Lord (1:7). Therefore, Hebrew wisdom literature taught people not only how to make good choices in life but also how to make godly choices.”(The essence of the Old Testament) Solomon, wrote most of the Proverbs, is well known for the wisdom gifted him by God upon requesting it. According to the Bible Solomon’s wisdom was divinely granted and surpassed that of all other sages (1kgs 4:29-34). Even Jesus accepted the historicity of the biblical account of Solomon’s wisdom (matt12:41), and thus, there is little reason from scripture to question Solomon as the author/originator of the proverbs attributed to him.( The essence of the Old Testament). The contrast between wisdom and folly is often a Sharp contrast between righteousness and wickedness for example; the diligent person is wise while the sluggard is a fool or the one who holds his tongue is wise while the fool hastens to speak. (The essence of the Old...

...Anne-Marie Sievu Rels 101 2nd February,2016. Reflection Paper 1 What I learnt from Proverbs, Esther and Joseph about what it means to be human. The reason why I transferred to Trinity Western University is because I wanted a deeper understanding of my faith and what it meant to be a believer of God. For as long as I can remember, I have always said, when asked that I am Christian but in truth, I never ever did what a Christian does to maintain their faith. I started Rels 101 in the second week of the semester and I had absolutely no idea what the class would be all about. I came to class without a bible, course pack and the required text book. I was a few minutes late and within minutes of getting comfortable I realized the Book of Proverbs was the topic of discussion. This excited me because it's been something I had always wanted to finally read and understand. As you have already guessed, I am not the best “Christian” around and before this, my bible sat at the bottom of my self collecting dust. Dirk Büchener, my professor spoke with so much passion explaining a verse suggested by a student and this grabbed my attention. That day was the day when I first opened my Bible App on my phone. Little did I know that a book so small held so much wisdom. The introduction of Proverbs immediately grabs the readers attention as it says in chapter 1 vs 5 that “let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance(.)” As someone who is......

Based on the common-size analysis above, which item(s) appear to be the most significant in explaining the change in net income (profitability) from the next most recent year to the most recent year (i.e., which items changed most relative to sales revenue)? Discuss below. It looks like the net income was higher for the next most recent year mostly because of the difference in the gross profit/margin. For the most recent year, it was 48.88% of sales and for the next most recent year it was 53.41% of sales. That’s a big difference and probably the reason that the company saw a higher net income percentage for the next most recent year. | 13.

Chapter 19

...Chapter 19 Initial Public Offerings, Investment Banking, and Financial Restructuring ANSWERS TO END-OF-CHAPTER QUESTIONS 19-1 a. A closely held corporation goes public when it sells stock to the general public. Going public increases the liquidity of the stock, establishes a market value, facilitates raising new equity, and allows the original owners to diversify. However, going public increases business costs, requires disclosure of operating data, and reduces the control of the original owners. The new issue market is the market for stock of companies that go public, and the issue is called an initial public offering (IPO). b. A rights offering occurs when a corporation sells a new issue of common stock to its existing stockholders. Each stockholder receives a certificate called a stock purchase right, or right, giving the stockholder the option to purchase a specified number of the new shares. The rights are issued in proportion to the amount of stock that each shareholder currently owns. c. A public offering is an offer of new common stock to the general public; in other words, an offer in which the existing shareholders are not given any preemptive right to purchase the new shares. A private placement is the sale of stock to only one or a few investors, usually institutional investors. The advantages of private placements are lower flotation costs and greater speed, since the shares issued are not subject to SEC registration. ...
