The Wisdom of Solomon for Shopping, Eating and Dining

When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee: And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite. Be not desirous of his dainties: for they are deceitful meat.

Proverbs 23:1-3 KJV

One thing is clear about our modern 21st century world is that we are ruled by big corporations.  Some of them, particularly those in the food industry are global, household brands.  They should be mistrusted and all that they offer must be carefully considered before making a decision to part with your money and consume their products.  I am particularly thinking of anything that is physically swallowed such as foods, herbal remedies, and pharmaceuticals.  It is really worth considering the Wisdom of Solomon particularly enlightening in the Amplified Version.

If you need wisdom all you need to do is ask

But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach; and it will be given to him.

James 1:5

This Bible verse of the day is an inspirational quote about wisdom that is great to memorise.

This is a scripture of great encouragement whenever we are at a loss to know what to do about anything. Do you need help in running your business?  Do you need help in parenting your children?  Do you need help to deal with a particularly difficult work colleague?  Maybe you and your spouse are not getting on.  This scripture from the letter of James will help you.

This promise from the Word of God is that God will generously give us wisdom whenever we ask. What is wisdom?  I believe that it is an inspired insight from God for a particular situation.

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace – Galatians 5:22

Being fruitful is rewarding

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness

Galatians 5:22

The verse of the day is a scripture about the fruit of the Spirit. Galatians 5: 22-23 are also wonderful bible verses about friendship.

Here the Apostle Paul is writing to the Christian believers at Galatia encouraging them to not be trapped into thinking that God requires religious rituals to be accepted by Him. He says that they are now under grace and not under law.

Paul begins to explain how Christians should now live and conduct themselves.

Firstly Paul says this:

For you, brothers, were called for freedom. Only don’t use your freedom for gain to the flesh, but through love be servants to one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Galatians 5:13-14

Inspirational Bible verse about the word of God – Hebrews 4:12

Share

The word of God is living and active

For the word of God is living and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and is able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
Hebrews 4:12

This scripture is particularly beautiful in the Amplified Bible which brings out the full, rich meaning.

For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 Amplified

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts – Colossians 3: 15

Above all these things, walk in love, which is the bond of perfection. 15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Colossians 3: 14-15

Receive the peace of God today

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.

Colossians 3:15

This wonderful Bible verse on peace is delightful when you know the full meaning in the original Greek of which it has been translated from. Here it is in the Amplified version:

And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ’s] one body you were also called [to live]. And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always].

Colossians 3: 15 (AMP)

Soul harmony is something that would bless everybody rich or poor, young or old, man or woman.  Some try to find it by meditation or stress relief using yoga or various other bodily activities.  However there is nothing in this world that has the power to still troubled thoughts other than the word of God.
