Blessings vs. Divine discipline related to applying wisdom in business. Pt. 3
Prov 11:15 Do not co-sign a loan for those outside your family, so that you will continue to provide for yourself and your family.
Prov 11:16 Be gracious in all your business dealings and you will have a good reputation.
Prov 11:17 Treat others with grace and impersonal love in your business dealings and you will receive the same from others.
Prov 11:18 Do your job unto the Lord with peace and contentment, knowing He is a rewarder of righteousness.
Prov 11:19 Keep Faith-Resting in the Lord in all your business transactions regardless of what the world may otherwise tell you and you will be blessed in time and eternity.
Prov 11:20 Conduct your business dealings with Gods righteousness and you will be His delight, (i.e., pleasing to Him).
Prov 11:21 Operate in the righteousness of God in all your business transactions, so that you and your descendants will be blessed.
Prov 11:22 Beware of the trophy wife!
The gold nose ring, ZAHAB זָהָב NEZEM, נֶזֶם was a female ornament since the time of the patriarchs, Gen 24:47, to enhance ones attractiveness, Ezek 16:12; Hos 2:13.
The swine - CHAZIYR, חֲזִיר, in Deut 14:8, represents unclean food forbidden to the Israelites, and pigs represented the utmost of disgusting creatures, Lev 11:7f.
In Isa 65:4, 66:17, they represent pagan rituals and false worship condemned by God.
Snout- APH, אַף Face or nose – anger, Prov 14:17; 29; 15:1.
It reps. the obnoxious habit of eating swill and rooting in dung; insensibly wasting and tarnishing the precious ornament.
It is the idea of luxury and wealth tainted by that which is false and repulsive to God.
It represents an angry woman adorned outwardly with beauty who is full of false (cosmic) doctrine that you want to have nothing to do with.
The Correlation! Beautiful Woman It focuses on outward beauty versus the inner beauty that comes from having Gods Word resident within your soul.
Lacks Discretion. The apostate woman who has turned aside or deviated from Gods Word and righteousness.
Psa 119:66, Teach me good discernment and knowledge, for I believe in Your commandments. Cf. 1 Sam 25:32-35
Instead of gaining honor by her natural gift of beauty, she wins ridicule; no discernment.
We should avoid the trophy wife at all cost, because outward beauty does not mean that a woman has inner beauty.
Inner beauty is the true beauty of a woman in Gods eyes.
Prov 12:4, An excellent wife is the crown of her husband, but she who shames him is like rottenness in his bones.
Prov 14:1, The wise woman builds her house, but the foolish tears it down with her own hands.
Prov 22:24, Do not associate with a man given to anger; or go with a hot-tempered man.
1 Sam 16:7, But the LORD said to Samuel, Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.
Choose your companions based on the Bible doctrine in their soul that is reflected in their words and actions, and not on appearance.
Prov 11:23 Cf. Gal 5:19-23
Prov 11:23 If you sow Gods righteousness you will reap blessing from the same, yet if you sow wickedness you can expect Gods discipline in return.
Grace Offering Prov 3:9-10, Honor the LORD from your wealth and from the first of all your produce; 10 So your barns will be filled with plenty and your vats will overflow with new wine.
