Proverbs – Chapter 16: Untitled

Today we continue our trek through the book of Proverbs and look to receive more biblical “wisdom”.

“The Lord works out everything to its proper end…” – Proverbs 16:4

Including the death of starving children?

“Kings detest wrongdoing, for a throne is established through righteousness.” – Proverbs 16:12

WTF?  Is the Bible seriously saying there’s never been a bad leader?  Ever??!?!?!?! Seriously?!?!

“How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver!” – Proverbs 16:16

What if that gold and silver is to buy much needed food for children?  Any moral person would argue gold/silver in this case is far better than wisdom.

“A violent person entices their neighbor  and leads them down a path that is not good.” – Proverbs 16:29

This describes God perfectly!  A violent person who leads others down a not so good path.

Once again, another chapter in Proverbs that professes to provide us wisdom but provides very little useful wisdom.  Hungry? God has a plan for you. Need money to buy food? Sorry, but wisdom is better than food. SMH.
