Proverbs 20 (New King James Version)

1 Wine is a mocker,

Strong drink is a brawler,

And whoever is led astray by it is not wise.

2 The wrath[a] of a king is like the roaring of a lion;

Whoever provokes him to anger sins against his own life.

3 It is honorable for a man to stop striving,

Since any fool can start a quarrel.

4 The lazy man will not plow because of winter;

He will beg during harvest and have nothing.

5 Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water,

But a man of understanding will draw it out.

6 Most men will proclaim each his own goodness,

But who can find a faithful man?

7 The righteous man walks in his integrity;

His children are blessed after him.

8 A king who sits on the throne of judgment

Scatters all evil with his eyes.

9 Who can say, “I have made my heart clean,

I am pure from my sin”?

10 Diverse weights and diverse measures,

They are both alike, an abomination to the LORD.

11 Even a child is known by his deeds,

Whether what he does is pure and right.

12 The hearing ear and the seeing eye,

The LORD has made them both.

13 Do not love sleep, lest you come to poverty;

Open your eyes, and you will be satisfied with bread.

14 “ It is good for nothing,”[b] cries the buyer;

But when he has gone his way, then he boasts.

15 There is gold and a multitude of rubies,

But the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.

16 Take the garment of one who is surety for a stranger,

And hold it as a pledge when it is for a seductress.

17 Bread gained by deceit is sweet to a man,

But afterward his mouth will be filled with gravel.

18 Plans are established by counsel;

By wise counsel wage war.

19 He who goes about as a talebearer reveals secrets;

Therefore do not associate with one who flatters with his lips.

20 Whoever curses his father or his mother,

His lamp will be put out in deep darkness.

21 An inheritance gained hastily at the beginning

Will not be blessed at the end.

22 Do not say, “I will recompense evil”;

Wait for the LORD, and He will save you.

23 Diverse weights are an abomination to the LORD,

And dishonest scales are not good.

24 A man’s steps are of the LORD;

How then can a man understand his own way?

25 It is a snare for a man to devote rashly something as holy,

And afterward to reconsider his vows.

26 A wise king sifts out the wicked,

And brings the threshing wheel over them.

27 The spirit of a man is the lamp of the LORD,

Searching all the inner depths of his heart.[c]

28 Mercy and truth preserve the king,

And by lovingkindness he upholds his throne.

29 The glory of young men is their strength,

And the splendor of old men is their gray head.

30 Blows that hurt cleanse away evil,

As do stripes the inner depths of the heart.[d]

 

Remember Lot's wife!

" Remember Lot's wife"... Jesus said when He was talking of His second coming.We should be  ready always for that day ,' for nobody except the Father in heaven knows'the day

Jesus said.For like the lightning ,that flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other,so will the Son of Man be in His own day.HE suffered and died for us in the cross to prepare the way for us to be with Him on that day.Jesus has warned us about that day,for it will be just as it was in the days of Noah.People ate ,they drank, they married ,they were given in marriage ,right up to the day when Noah went into the ark.The flood came and destroyed them all.[Gen.6:5-8] Think of our creater in all your ways ,and fear Him,then we will not go away from Him. So also it was the same as it was in the days of Lot.People ate,they drank,they bought,they sold,they planted ,they built:but on the very day that Lot went out of Sodom,it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all.[Gen.18:20-33;19-24,25]That is the way it will be on the day that the Son of Man is revealed. On that day let him who is on the housetop,with his belongings in the house,not come down and go inside to carry them away:and likewise let him who is in the field not turn back. 'Remember Lot's wife'..Why Jesus said that ?..We will see..Lot was Abraham's brother's son.Lot's father died very early.When the Lord called Abraham to go away from his country ,to the land which He showed ,he obeyed and began to travell,Lot also went along with him.Both were very rich with livestock,so the land was not able to nourish and support them to dwell together. There was strife between their herdsmen.Abraham said,'Lot,their quarrel should not bring bitterness between us ,you choose a place and go on your own, if you go to the right I will go to the left ,or if you go to the left,I will turn to the right and go'.It was well with Lot.He looked around ,and chose the well watered valley of Jordan,went to the city of Sodom and Gomorrah ,put his tent there and started to live there. The men of Sodom and Gomorrah were very wicked and exceedingly great sinners against the Lord.So the Lord came down to see and hear the cries of those wicked men,if it is true or not.They were really wicked.So the Lord sent two of His angels to Sodom and  Gomorrah to destroy it.

It was evening when the two angels came to Sodom.Lot was sitting at Sodom's city gate.Seeing them,Lot rose up to meet them and bowed to the ground.They wanted to spend the night in the street,the city square.Lot begged them to come home with him.He urged them greatly untill they yeilded .He served them with dinner,baked unleavened bread.Then the wicked men of Sodom sourrounded Lot's house,they wanted to do evil to those two strangerswho came to their city,without knowing that they were the angels of God.Lot went out of the door and shut the door after him and pleaded with them to have mercy and spare them.They never listened to him.They pressed violently against Lot and came close to breaking down the door.The angeles reached out and pulled Lot into the house and shut the door.They struck the men outside with blindness,they groped in vain and could not find the door.The angels had a different plan to deal with them early in the morning as per God's plan.They revealed to Lot that God has sent them  to spoil and destroy Sodom .Lot went out and spoke to his would be sons-in-law ,they thought it was a joke,they never came to the safety of his house.When the morning came,the angels urged Lot to hurry,lest he too will be consumed in the punishment of the city.While he lingered, 'the men' seized him and his wife and his two daughters by the hand,for The Lord was merciful to him,brought them out of the city and left them there.They said,'Escape for your life! Do not look behind or stop..lest you beconsumed..Make haste ..for I cannot do anything until you reach Zoar'.The sun rose,The Lord rained brimstone and fire from heaven on Sodom and Gomorrah and destroyed them.Lot's wife looked back and she became a pillar of salt.That's why Jesus said 'Remember Lot's wife'!

Jesus said,"No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back [to the things behind]is fit for the kingdom of God.[Lk.9:62] Take a decision for Jesus today,don't ever look back,don't look back because of your friends,don't look back because of worldly pleasures,don't look back because of your pride,don't look back in despair,just go on and on towards the goal..that is Jesus; you will escape the great destruction [same like Sodom and Gomorrah] that is in store for the world and the sinful people.So don't waste your time anymore, invite Jesus into your life, live for HIM."Love not the world  ,neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world the love of the Father is not in him " [1 Jn.2:15].May our dear Lord give you the wisdom and grace to understand and obey His divine calling ,that you may be blessed ! AMEN !!
