Proverbs 19 §

Desire without knowledge is not good,
and whoever makes haste wit his feet misses his way.

Proverbs 19:2

I am reliably informed that this verse isn’t a warning about running, but about buyer’s remorse.

Verse 3 tells us that when we rage against God, it might actually be because of our own foolish decisions.

Good sense makes one slow to anger,
and it is his glory to overlook an offense.

Proverbs 19:11

I need to work on my glory (bet you never read that in a Bible study before). We can only overlook offenses from a position of security. If we are secure in Christ, what can man do to us? So Christ is glorified when we trust wholly in Him and Him alone, and we share in His glory. I need to work on my glory.

Psalm 109 §

Ouch (verses 2-20). Imprecatory psalms always make me uncomfortable. Sin and judgment should make us uncomfortable.
