Proverb 27

17(a) As iron sharpens iron is one of the mantras of F3 but there is more wisdom from Solomon in Proverb 27.  Here are some of them:

1  Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.  (Be humble, don’t be overconfident.  Be on guard.)

2  Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips.  (Be aware of and avoid self praise.  It means much more when it’s from an outside source.)

4  Wrath is cruel and anger a torrent, but who is able to stand before jealousy?  (Jealousy has a power and destructive capability that goes beyond wrath and anger.  The latter are usually from being provoked while jealousy is more secret and buried within our mental darkness.)

7  A satisfied soul loathes the honeycomb.  (When our life is satisfied from a material or physical aspect we find it easy to reject things that are usually pleasing to us.  Instead we need to fill our hearts and souls with God and His spiritual truths.)

18 Whoever keeps the fig tree will eat its fruit.  (The worker is worthy of the fruit of his labor and not just literally.)

20 Hell and Destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.  (Our longing for things we desire will never be satisfied.  The answer is to have the need channeled and satisfied in God and what He provides.)

15-16 A continual dripping on a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike; whoever restrains her restrains the wind, and grasps oil with his right hand.  (Instead of trying to change a contentious woman, a wise and godly husband loves her as Jesus loves his church and leaves the changing up to God.)

But getting back to Verse 17, the entire verse reads, “ As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.”  Just as the striking and friction of iron against iron can sharpen one another, so it is with each of us.  We should not shy away from giving and receiving critical and constructive criticism.  Don’t let a brother walk alone, sharpen him with godly communications.  Walk together in mutual concern for each other’s burdens, worries, and temptations.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I’m serving on the worship team at church this Sunday, and one of the songs I’ve been practicing is a lively meditation on God’s faithfulness. The bridge repeats, “I will rest in Your promises. My confidence is your faithfulness.” He is faithful, and He has proven Himself in my life as I’m sure He has in yours. Remember His faithfulness in the past, and rest in his promises for tomorrow.

MOLESKIN:

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Control.  Some things are within and some things are not within our control.  Coming up the hill for the last time this morning my SSHs were very sloppy, low energy style.  I realized midway through them that I was in control of the way I performed them and I better make a better showing for myself.  I was in control and I could just go through the motions or I could do them for my best benefit.  I was in charge of the impact they had.

Sometimes I get the false impression that I control things that are really bigger than me or my capabilities.  I remember a time when a very well know company did something I personally did not agree with.  Although I did not own any of the company’s stock, I called my financial adviser and told her to never invest my money in the company in the future.  A few weeks later another company began acting like an activist for a particular cause that I did not agree with so I called my adviser and informed her to sell the shares in my portfolio.  It happened again last week.  But this time I let it go and didn’t make the call to “sell.”

Why my different reaction this time?  I’ve become aware of my lack of impact, my lack of control.  I need to focus on what I can control, and let go of the things I cannot .  Yes, I do need to hold to morals rooted in God’s expectations.  Yes, I do need to stand up against sin and evil of others … and myself.  And finally, yes, I need to let God be God and let him dish out the wrath.  Vengeance is His, He will repay.  Jesus summed it up for me when He said that all the law can be summarized in two commandments, love God and love others.
