Proverbs 27 - So that's what a Sensible Man Does? Hmmm...

Welcome to Day 27!

When the idea first came to me to do this study of The Proverbs, I was reading Chapter 27. I made notes of the following verses from that study and began to prepare for a chapter per day beginning the first of the month.

Now, all of the verses are listed for you. This is the third time going through this wonderful book of the Bible. I am so pleased that God has added some 5,100 page views (not counting this one =D) from 73 countries. WOW!!! Huh??

Somehow I believe God must be pleased.  Thank you so much for sharing these posts and the message that God made us, loves us, wants the best for us and proved that by sending Jesus to save us.

Feel free to add any scripture or discuss how they helped you in the comment section each day.  I welcome and look forward to that!


V1 Don’t brag about your plans for tomorrow – wait and see what happens.

V2 Don’t praise yourself; let others do it!

V3 A rebel’s frustrations are heavier than sand and rocks.

V4 Jealousy is more dangerous and cruel than anger.

V5 Open rebuke is better than hidden love!

V6 Wounds from a friend are better than kisses from an enemy!

V7 Even honey seems tasteless to a man who is full; but if he is hungry, he’ll eat anything!

V8 A man who strays from home is like a bird that wanders from its nest.

V9 Friendly suggestions are as pleasant as perfume.

V10 Never abandon a friend – either yours or your father’s. Then you won’t need to go to a distant relative for help in your time of need.

V11 My son, how happy I will be if you turn out to be sensible! It will be a public honor to me.
V12 A sensible man watches for problems ahead and prepares to meet them. The simpleton never looks, and suffers the consequences.

V13 The world's poorest credit risk is the man who agrees to pay a stranger's debts.

V14 If you shout a pleasant greeting to a friend too early in the morning, he will count it as a curse!

V15 A constant dripping on a rainy day and a cranky woman are much alike!

V16 You can no more stop her complaints than you can stop the wind or hold on to anything with oil-slick hands.

V17 A friendly discussion is as stimulating as the sparks that fly when iron strikes iron.

V18 A workman may eat from the orchard he tends; anyone should be rewarded who protects another’s interests.

V19 A mirror reflects a man’s face, but what he is really like is shown by the kinds of friends he chooses.

V20 Ambition and death are alike in this: neither is ever satisfied.

V21 The purity of silver and gold can be tested in a crucible, but a man is tested by his reaction to men’s praise.

V22 You can’t separate a rebel from his foolishness though you crush him to powder.
