Proverb a Day in May - May 20th/Chapter 20

As we come to the 20th day and 20th chapter, I pray this has been a blessing to you. Maybe some of you are reading this and feeling bad because you have not followed every day. To that I say, "It doesn't matter what prevented you in the past, just don't let it prevent you in the presence."

There is so much I would like to touch on today, but seeing that I have spent some time this week at the Independent Baptist Fellowship International, this verse is what stood out to me the most:

Proverbs 20:25 - It is a snare to the man who devoureth that which is holy, and after vows to make enquiry.

We see a lot all around us in the name of Christianity that is nothing more than devouring that which is holy. Holy means to be set apart, and there are some things that should be set apart for God: His Word; the local, New Testament Church, and evangelism, to say a few. And the worse part about is, that now many years later, we need to hold meetings and seminars to make enquiry and discuss what went wrong. God help us to never be entangled in the snare of worldliness and to always hold in high esteem those things which are the Lords. 


  1. Thanks for doing these, brother. I do miss a few days here and there, but I am offline sometimes for days at a time. I do come on and look back over the past days and enjoy the article and comments.

  2. ps. This is a great verse in chapter 20 - a very marginalized verse today, but still 100% true as ever! "Wine is a mocker , strong drink is raging : and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise."
