When you sit to dine with a ruler, note well what is before you, and put a knife to your throat if you are given to gluttony. Proverbs 23:1
The Bible is full of bad advice too. Like anything in life, we must choose what works for us. That’s why I choose practical, logical scriptures to live by. Can you imagine what would happen if someone was invited to a White House dinner with Obama, then they put a knife to their throat because they ate more than they should have?
Or perhaps this scripture isn’t to be taken literally, and is figuratively speaking to illustrate a point.
Apply your heart to instruction and your ears to words of knowledge. Proverbs 23:12
Now that’s what I’m talking about! These are the type of verses I love to understand. These are the type of scriptures I choose to focus on and apply to my daily living.
