Value Of Friends And Brothers – Proverbs 17:17

Value Of Friends And Brothers
Proverbs 17:17 (NIV)

17 A friend loves at all times,
and a brother is born for a time of adversity.

Proverbs Club Commentary

The older I get, the fewer friends I can count.
Brothers truly do care for each other,
With the occasional exception.
See Cain And Able in Genesis 4.

Pick Your Side: Poor Or Proud – Proverbs 16:19

Pick Your Side: Poor Or Proud
Proverbs 16:19 (NIV)

19 Better to be lowly in spirit along with the oppressed
than to share plunder with the proud.

Proverbs Club Commentary

Throw your lot in with the poor and persecuted.
Splitting ill-gotten gain with the wicked is futile.
Pick your side and get what you deserve.

But as for me and my house,
we will serve the Lord.
Joshua 24:15b (KJV)

and the wicked at the gates of the righteous.

Narrow Path Of Blessings – Proverbs 13:19

Narrow Path Of Blessings
Proverbs 13:19 (NIV)

19 A longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul,
but fools detest turning from evil.

Proverbs Club Commentary

The narrow path is replete with blessings
that help to keep you on the narrow path.
The broad path of a fool is evil
and precludes any prospect of blessings.
