Which Proverb did you decide to make your own today?  To chew on…to meditate about…to apply to your life today?

What about:

“Wine is a mocker, Strong drink is a brawler, And whoever is led astray by it is not wise.”  Proverbs 20:1


“The lazy man will not plow because it is winter; He will beg during harvest and have nothing.”  20:4


“It is honorable for a man to stop striving, Since any fool can start a quarrel.”  20:3

or a political statement:

“Mercy and truth preserve the King, And by lovingkindness he upholds his throne.” 20:28

Are you drinking too much, not working enough, braced for a fight, or failing to expect honesty, mercy, and tenderness in your leaders?

About Carol Brandt

I earned a B.A. in History from Florida State University and M.Ed in.Higher Education from Florida Atlantic University. I taught high school social studies before “retiring” to full-time homemaking and raising two daughters. Now I love being a grandmother to four boys and a girl. I have also raised five collies.

My husband, John, was an optometrist, who worked tirelessly for his profession through private practice and as a consultant, and served on the Board of Trustees of Illinois College of Optometry for twenty years.

Ernest Reisinger was my chief mentor in this warm-hearted application of Calvinism. He gave me many books! The Founders Journal and Founders Conferences, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, and Charles Spurgeon have been other sources of Reformed thinking as well as the other warm-hearted ones listed in my book, “Warm-hearted Calvinists.”
