I was just reading the book of proverbs chapter 10...anytime I read it, I feel like I should hold a pole by the road side and hold on to my breath for my dear life. I feel the need to pause at every two lines just to keep up with the flow of understanding. Its really that deep. I just grasped the ultimate meaning of a few verses (thought I'd share)...lets take a look at verse 14 and verse 20 for a split second...and think about it.
Verse 14 "The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to turn one away from the snares of death."
This makes me reflect on why so many are in pain, depression, and despair. I was just telling someone the other day that some things really depend on how u handle the situation, do you seek His face or do you just dwell on ur useless emotions. One path brings joy even in the midst of pain, and the other brings serious pain. Those who have a solid foundation never despair because they are confident that no matter what they go through, there's always a light at the end of the tunnel, a.k.a the slogan, 'too blessed to be depressed.'
Verse 20 "He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will be destroyed."
Now this is pretty self-explanatory, if you need some good examples, observe certain companions/friends/associates and see how they interact with each other...then you can now set your own standard--->which would u like to belong to? The companion of the wise or the companion of fools? You decide!!!
