Jesus Directs Our Narrow Paths – Proverbs 20:24

Welcome To Proverbs Club
Jesus Directs Our Narrow Paths
Proverbs 20:24 (NIV)

24 A person’s steps are directed by the Lord.
How then can anyone understand their own way?

Proverbs Club Commentary

Jesus directs our narrow path,
possibly because we cannot fathom it.

All other paths cannot be perceived,
and end in sorrow.

Do Not Curse Your Father Or Mother – Proverbs 20:20

Do Not Curse Your Father Or Mother
Proverbs 20:20 (NIV)

20 If someone curses their father or mother,
their lamp will be snuffed out in pitch darkness.

Proverbs Club Commentary

You are not required to Love your parents.
But you are required to Honor them.
Or, in my opinion, at the very least, hold your peace.

“‘Anyone who curses their father or mother
is to be put to death.
Because they have cursed their father or mother,
their blood will be on their own head.”
Leviticus 20:9 (NIV)
