Be Humble And Hope For Recognition – Proverbs 25:6

Welcome To Proverbs Club
Be Humble And Hope For Recognition
Proverbs 25:6 (NIV)

6 Do not exalt yourself in the king’s presence,
and do not claim a place among his great men;
7 it is better for him to say to you, “Come up here,”
than for him to humiliate you before his nobles.

Proverbs Club Commentary

Never take a position higher than you deserve and risk embarrassment.
Humble yourself and possibly be recognized for your accomplishments.

Hearts Of The Leaders
Proverbs 25:3 (NIV)

God Conceals Matters; Kings Reveal Matters – Proverbs 25:2

Welcome To Proverbs Club
God Conceals Matters; Kings Reveal Matters.
Proverbs 25:2 (NIV)

2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter;
to search out a matter is the glory of kings.

Proverbs Club Commentary

To conceal a matter, like our sin,
is for God to hide it.

To reveal a matter, like the Gospel,
is for the Righteous to announce it.

Hezekiah Compiles More Proverbs – Proverbs 25:1

Hezekiah Compiles More Proverbs
Proverbs 25:1

1 These are more proverbs of Solomon,
compiled by the men of Hezekiah king of Judah:

Proverbs Club Commentary

Chapter 25 is self-documented as proverbs of King Solomon.
It also records that King Hezekiah ordered the compilation.
These proverbs were lost very early, so how many are still to be found?
