Welcome to Day 2065 of  Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.

This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom

The Book of Proverbs – Chapter 25 – Daily Wisdom

Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps! I am Guthrie Chamberlain, and we are on Day 2065 of our trek. Establishing good habits is imperative for living a Godly life and one habit I have practiced nearly every day for the past 45+ years of my adult life is to read the chapter in the book of Proverbs that corresponds to the day of the month. This single habit has been the catalyst for gaining wisdom and creating a living legacy. Adopting this habit can do the same for your life. The realization that God’s Wisdom is the only true wisdom drives me to seek God’s wisdom each day, and there is no better way to do this than to meditate on God’s book of Wisdom. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. So we are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, to seek out discernment and insights, and to boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before. Today I will read Proverbs 25.

The Book of Proverbs - Chapter 25

More Proverbs of Solomon These are more proverbs of Solomon, collected by the advisers of King Hezekiah of Judah. It is God’s privilege to conceal things and the king’s privilege to discover them. No one can comprehend the height of heaven, the depth of the earth, or all that goes on in the king’s mind! Remove the impurities from silver, and the sterling will be ready for the silversmith. Remove the wicked from the king’s court, and his reign will be made secure by justice. Don’t demand an audience with the king or push for a place among the great. It’s better to wait for an invitation to the head table than to be sent away in public disgrace. Just because you’ve seen something, 8don’t be in a hurry to go to court. For what will you do in the end if your neighbor deals you a shameful defeat? When arguing with your neighbor, don’t betray another person’s secret. 10 Others may accuse you of gossip, and you will never regain your good reputation. 11 Timely advice is lovely, like golden apples in a silver basket. 12 To one who listens, valid criticism is like a gold earring or other gold jewelry. 13 Trustworthy messengers refresh like snow in summer. They revive the spirit of their employer. 14 A person who promises a gift but doesn’t give it is like clouds and wind that bring no rain. 15 Patience can persuade a prince, and soft speech can break bones. 16 Do you like honey? Don’t eat too much, or it will make you sick! 17 Don’t visit your neighbors too often, or you will wear out your welcome. 18 Telling lies about others is as harmful as hitting them with an ax, wounding them with a sword, or shooting them with a sharp arrow. 19 Putting confidence in an unreliable person in times of trouble is like chewing with a broken tooth or walking on a lame foot. 20 Singing cheerful songs to a person with a heavy heart is like taking someone’s coat in cold weather or pouring vinegar in a wound. 21 If your enemies are hungry, give them food to eat. If they are thirsty, give them water to drink. 22 You will heap burning coals of shame on their heads, and the Lord will reward you. 23 As surely as a north wind brings rain, so a gossiping tongue causes anger! 24 It’s better to live alone in the corner of an attic than with a quarrelsome wife in a lovely home. 25 Good news from far away is like cold water to the thirsty. 26 If the godly give in to the wicked, it’s like polluting a fountain or muddying a spring. 27 It’s not good to eat too much honey, and it’s not good to seek honors for yourself. 28 A person without self-control is like a city with broken-down walls. Today, as you ponder Proverbs 25, please encourage your friends and family to join us and come along tomorrow for another day of our Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy. Thank you so much for allowing me to be your guide, mentor, and, most importantly, your friend as I serve you through this Wisdom-Trek podcast and journal. As we take this trek together, let us always:
  1. Live Abundantly (Fully)
  2. Love Unconditionally
  3. Listen Intentionally
  4. Learn Continuously
  5. Lend to others Generously
  6. Lead with Integrity
  7. Leave a Living Legacy Each Day
I am Guthrie Chamberlain reminding you to Keep Moving Forward, Enjoy Your Journey, and Create a Great Day Everyday! See you next time for more daily wisdom!

The Book of Proverbs - Chapter 25

More Proverbs of Solomon

25 These are more proverbs of Solomon, collected by the advisers of King Hezekiah of Judah.

2 It is God’s privilege to conceal things

and the king’s privilege to discover them.

3 No one can comprehend the height of heaven, the depth of the earth,

or all that goes on in the king’s mind!

4 Remove the impurities from silver,

and the sterling will be ready for the silversmith.

5 Remove the wicked from the king’s court,

and his reign will be made secure by justice.

6 Don’t demand an audience with the king

or push for a place among the great.

7 It’s better to wait for an invitation to the head table

than to be sent away in public disgrace.

Just because you’ve seen something,

8     don’t be in a hurry to go to court.

For what will you do in the end

if your neighbor deals you a shameful defeat?

9 When arguing with your neighbor,

don’t betray another person’s secret.

10 Others may accuse you of gossip,

and you will never regain your good reputation.

11 Timely advice is lovely,

like golden apples in a silver basket.

12 To one who listens, valid criticism

is like a gold earring or other gold jewelry.

13 Trustworthy messengers refresh like snow in summer.

They revive the spirit of their employer.

14 A person who promises a gift but doesn’t give it

is like clouds and wind that bring no rain.

15 Patience can persuade a prince,

and soft speech can break bones.

16 Do you like honey?

Don’t eat too much, or it will make you sick!

17 Don’t visit your neighbors too often,

or you will wear out your welcome.

18 Telling lies about others

is as harmful as hitting them with an ax,

wounding them with a sword,

or shooting them with a sharp arrow.

19 Putting confidence in an unreliable person in times of trouble

is like chewing with a broken tooth or walking on a lame foot.

20 Singing cheerful songs to a person with a heavy heart

is like taking someone’s coat in cold weather

or pouring vinegar in a wound.[a]

21 If your enemies are hungry, give them food to eat.

If they are thirsty, give them water to drink.

22 You will heap burning coals of shame on their heads,

and the Lord will reward you.

23 As surely as a north wind brings rain,

so a gossiping tongue causes anger!

24 It’s better to live alone in the corner of an attic

than with a quarrelsome wife in a lovely home.

25 Good news from far away

is like cold water to the thirsty.

26 If the godly give in to the wicked,

it’s like polluting a fountain or muddying a spring.

27 It’s not good to eat too much honey,

and it’s not good to seek honors for yourself.

28 A person without self-control

is like a city with broken-down walls.
