Welcome To Proverbs Club
Wisdom, The Heart, And 3 Senses
Proverbs 23:12 (NIV)

12 Apply your heart to instruction
and your ears to words of knowledge.

Proverbs Club Commentary

Store wisdom in your heart.
Write it down so your hands can feel it,
and your eyes can see it.
Speak it audibly so your ears can hear it.

Make it real to three of your five senses,
as well as your spirit.

Craving Of A Sluggard – Proverbs 21:25-26

Welcome To Proverbs Club
Craving Of A Sluggard
Proverbs 21:25-26 (NIV)

25 The craving of a sluggard will be the death of him,
because his hands refuse to work.

26 All day long he craves for more,
but the righteous give without sparing.

Proverbs Club Commentary

A loafer craves improvement,
but receives nothing,
because he is too lazy to work.

The Righteous can give generously
because God blesses their labor.
