SIH TOTT ICONHe layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous (Prov 2:7)

 

Wisdom On Display: Wisdom Is Beneficial To Those Around Us: Proverbs 10:10-13

10) He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow: but a prating fool shall fall.
11) The mouth of a righteous [man is] a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
12) Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.
13) In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod [is] for the back of him that is void of understanding.

In this section of Scripture, we will see that others who are around us can gain many benefits from our wisdom…

EXPOSITION:

10) He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow: but a prating fool shall fall.

We now have two opposite types of fools being described:
1.  the “quiet” fool who guards his motives and true desires by working behind people’s backs to take advantage of them will cause painful wounds to their victim, and eventually, to themselves.
2.  the “boisterous” fool who speaks foolishly, revealing everything that is taking place in his mind, will end in utter ruin when all his workings are brought into the public eye.

This proverb reminds us that not all men are wise, nor is their speech beneficial.

Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: [neither] let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.”   (Psalms 35:19)

11) The mouth of a righteous [man is] a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
1.  The words that a Godly man speaks is a source of life for those who will hear him.
2.  The words of the foolish and ungodly will create havoc and ruin in the lives of others, leaving him ashamed and without excuse.

This proverb reminds us of that both extended physical life and eternal life can be found when the message of the wise is heeded.

The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.  The law of his God [is] in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.”   (Psalms 37:30-31)

12) Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.
1.  The foolish who hate others arouses feelings of enmity and anger where no previously existed.
2.  The wise who love others based on the commands of the Lord, will show forgiveness and “forgetfulness” as they put wrongs done against them behind.

This proverb reveals to us that the wise are a great source of forgiveness, encouragement and second chances.

And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.”   (1 Peter 4:8)

13) In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod [is] for the back of him that is void of understanding.
 
1. The speech of those who see the true nature of things will speak wise words for the benefit of others.
2. Those who do not understand the true nature of things, have their priorities misplaced, living selfish lives and awaiting deserved temporal and eternal punishment.

This proverbs emphasizes and summarizes that the lives of those who are godly are of great benefit to those around them.

The Lord GOD hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to [him that is] weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.”   (Isaiah 50:4)

Be ye not as the horse, [or] as the mule, [which] have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.”   (Psalms 32:9)

SUMMARY:

Not simply for our benefit, but for the benefit of our family, friends, and acquaintances, let us live lives of wisdom.  When tempted to depart from the way of wisdom, let’s always remember we are not only harming ourselves but also those who we love and know.

By God’s grace, let us all study these proverbs diligently, giving them the value that they deserve.

May the Lord bless us as we receive this sound wisdom and then “Think On These Things”.
