Proverbs 29

download (1)
Proverbs 29:1 "He, that being often reproved hardeneth [his] neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy."
Proverbs 29:2 "When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn."
Proverbs 29:3 "Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father: but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth [his] substance."
Proverbs 29:4 "The king by judgment establisheth the land: but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it."
Proverbs 29:5 "A man that flattereth his neighbour spreadeth a net for his feet."
A man who has been corrected over and over. Each time he was corrected just made him more and more stubborn.  The truth will be the rule when the righteous are in control. It will be fair to everyone. The poor, the widows, and the homeless will be cared for. On the other hand, when the wicked rule, the order of the day would be to make the wicked ruler richer. Every decision he made would have a selfish motive.   A man who keeps company with a harlot is an embarrassment to his entire family.   The whole country is healthy in the rule of a just king.  Flattery is a trap. There is a hidden motive behind the flattery.
Proverbs 29:15 "The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left [to himself] bringeth his mother to shame."
Proverbs 29:16 "When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall."
Proverbs 29:17 "Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul."
Proverbs 29:18 "Where [there is] no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy [is] he."
Proverbs 29:19 "A servant will not be corrected by words: for though he understand he will not answer."
Sometimes a whipping with the correction makes a more lasting lesson. If a child is left to have his own way, he will wind up spoiled; and no one enjoys being around a child who knows no discipline. It shames his mother.   When the morals of most of the people are bad, sin increases rapidly. Leave them alone, and they will destroy each other. When you train a son correctly, you have nothing to fear from his behavior.   A vision from God can be the will of God being revealed to you in a supernatural way.  

Proverbs 29:22 "An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression."
Proverbs 29:23 "A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit."
Proverbs 29:24 "Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul: he heareth cursing, and bewrayeth [it] not."
Proverbs 29:25 "The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe."
Proverbs 29:26 "Many seek the ruler's favour; but [every] man's judgment [cometh] from the LORD."
. His fits of temper cause problems, not only for himself, but for all those around him.   God loves the humble. In fact, everyone loves the humble person, and others build the humble up. A man with pride is so self-centered that others are not fond of him.   To be partner with a thief makes you a thief, also. Even if you did not steal, you would be guilty by association.  Fear is lack of faith. If we have faith in the Lord, we have nothing to fear.
