Interesting Bible study at the Cain's in lieu of services today. The first lesson was that the Bible is not just a book...a book of history. Each time you open it up to read - God is speaking directly to you. I like this concept and accept it through faith. It makes for a much more immersive reading experience. If you listen very carefully - you can hear the words spoken to you as you read them. This is what God said to me today.
Proverbs 12: 5 The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit.6 The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood: but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them. 7 The wicked are overthrown , and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand . 8 A man shall be commended according to his wisdom: but he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised.9 He that is despised , and hath a servant, is better than he that honoureth himself, and lacketh bread.10 A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.11 He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding.12 The wicked desireth the net of evil men: but the root of the righteous yieldeth fruit.
