:1 A good name is rather to be chosen then great riches, and loving favor rather then silver and gold.
Your name and loving favor are more important then anything else. Guard them well.
:15 Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.
Notice is says correction not anger. Be sure you never discipline in anger. Even angry words will hurt a child for a long time.
:2 I will be glad and rejoice in Thee: I will sing praise to Thy Name, O Thou Most High.
This is how I have spent most of my day. Listening and singing praises to the Lord while getting things done.
:10 And they that know Thy Name will put their trust in Thee: for Thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek Thee.
Isn't it wonderful to know that we can always trust God?
1 Sam 9
:3 Saul was very tall.
:15 The Lord told Samuel the day before that Saul would come to him.
:20 Samuel told him that the donkeys were found.
:21 Saul said he was least of least.
Isn't that how God works? He uses the least and He gets all the glory just as it should be.
:27 Samuel has a word for Saul from God.
