7 Natural Awakenings ~ Part B

Proverbs arouse a mind to pause and consider the wonder of what works in life, and the impotence to not know.

Proverbs guide the feet if they first steer the soul. They protect the ignorant who would listen, and inform the learned who are humble.

A good proverb becomes a timeless thought. Its quality is measured in both its brevity and longevity. It will inform many souls.

  1. The willing are sustained by their good spirit, but the grudging will slowly fall down.
  2. A kingdom cannot survive under a wicked king anymore than a household can under a silent father.
  3. The wise know the time to speak, while the time for quiet is equally clear.
  4. A man of rage will stumble while the man of peace stands firm.
  5. Where there are many words resentment is bred, but where there is silence distrust will grow.
  6. A man who does well is he who heeds the righteous words of one who has stood long and upright upon fiery stones.
  7. Love and prosperity come to many men, while loneliness and poverty awash even more. But both will equally see their days end - for all life is as fleeting as judgement is guaranteed.

Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil. (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14)
