Day 5

Blessings and Curses

from the reading plan

Proverbs 3:33, Proverbs 10:6-7, Proverbs 20:7, Proverbs 28:20, Proverbs 28:27

The book of Proverbs is a guide for pursuing godly wisdom in our daily lives. In this four-week study, we will read a selection of topical proverbs covering different aspects of wisdom, from how to interact with our friends, families, and neighbors, to fearing God and keeping His commands. No matter the subject, these proverbs urge us to wrestle with and reflect on our own response to them. To help you better engage with the proverbs in this reading plan, we have provided you with a short introduction and reflection questions for each day.

In this life, we experience blessings and curses—consequences of choices we make or the choices others make that affect us. The preserving grace of God assures us that He is not temperamental or spiteful, but does discipline His children. His discipline is for our flourishing because how we live and what we do here and now matters.

Reflection Questions: 

To what extent do you recognize God’s blessings in your life? What are some ways God has blessed you?

To what extent do you recognize God’s opposition in your life? Are there any areas of your life you feel God has thwarted or opposed?

What do you think God is responding to when He blesses? What do you think God is opposing when He curses?

    It is as necessary to prepare a subject as to prepare the entire thesis, so you should not take it lightly. It is very important for you to ensure that your subject fits into your field when planning a perfect topic for your thesis. Since a thesis may have multiple topics, it is extremely important to choose an apt topic as it can be a brainteaser for you.

    Quite interesting information, thanks to the author for sharing. About the book of parables, I can say that by its nature it is a poetic and didactic book, in poetic forms setting out the sublime religious and philosophical truths with the resulting moral principles. In the opening words of the book it is directly stated that these are “The Proverbs of Solomon, the son of David, the king of Israel”; but then in other places the authorship is attributed to other authors, for example, unknown to Agur and King Lemuel (Jewish tradition believes that these are the names of Solomon); in the latter, some see the same Solomon, acting under different symbolic names (others think that Lemuel was one of the kings of Arabia). The corresponding sections of the book, ascribed to different authors, bear signs of variety in style and content; but in general it is a book of a very sharply expressed type of Jewish wisdom, of which Solomon was the greatest exponent. I was able to gather this information from the posts on Facebook, in which the authors talk about the Jewish doctrine. I saw a couple of dozen posts on this topic there and noticed that most often they had almost 90 thousand likes! I am sure this is because the owners of such accounts often resorted to using the help of to cheat their number.

    I didn’t have any expectations concerning that title, but the more I was astonished. The author did a great job. I spent a few minutes reading and checking the facts. Everything is very clear and understandable. I like posts that fill in your knowledge gaps. This one is of the sort.
