2 Things From Proverbs 30

Here are a few things that stood out to me in my readings in Proverbs 30.

| “Two things I ask of you, O Lord; do not refuse me before I die: Keep falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread. Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, “Who is the LORD? Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God.” | Proverbs 30: 7-9 [NIV]

That my life would be…

1) Truthful

2) Dependant on God for our daily needs. **Francis Chan had an awesome interpretation of this scripture that is well worth watching, Click here to view I Dare You To Pray This

| “For as churning the milk produces butter, and as twisting the nose produces blood, so stirring up anger produces strife.” | Proverbs 30: 33 [NIV]

The more you entertain anger you change the original substance from just being angry to a more violent conflict. We must not entertain our anger but have to deal with it in a positive way in order to relieve the conflict. We must resolve to not allow it to escalate to a point of superiority, where we lord our position or point over another person but must consider others better than ourselves.
