Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

July 4 - Morning

"A kindhearted woman gains respect,
    but ruthless men gain only wealth.
A kind man benefits himself,
    but a cruel man brings trouble on himself."

- Proverbs 11:16-17

How Behavior Affects What You Gain    

These two verses in Proverbs 11:16-17 go together. There are benefits to being a kindhearted woman and there are benefits to being a ruthless man. The first gains respect and the second gains wealth. This is what each brings to themselves from others. One brings in respect, the other brings in wealth. Both, kindness and ruthlessness have an advantage when used to advance in the temporal world.

The difference is seen in Proverbs 11:17 where the person’s behavior and the gain it produced in the world affects the two types of people. The kind person who gained respect from others brings
benefits on themselves. But, the ruthless, cruel person brings trouble on themselves.

Now with that information, you can decide how you want to behave in the world and what you
want to gain from the world!

Proverbs 11:16-17

  Christian Quote from Church History

"A democracy is an excellent form of government only if that society is full of moral, upright people."
- Galyn Wiemers

Something to Ponder??

In 54 AD the Praetorian Guard proclaimed 16 year old Nero emperor because his mother, Agrippina, who had just poisoned her husband Emperor Claudius to create this vacancy, instructed them to.  Emperor Nero began wild late parties and rioting in the streets at the age of 19 in 56 AD. In 59 AD at the age of 22 Emperor Nero wanted to be the equivalent of a Hollywood movie star so he began to appear in plays and give public performances in the theater in. It was at this time he killed his mother. In 62 AD at the age of 25 Emperor Nero killed his wife, and began to pursue the dream of becoming become a “rock star” when he began to publicly perform his poetry and play the lyre. He also enter the Greek games as an athlete and to race chariots and, of course, was awarded first place. It was also in 62 AD that Nero would have heard Paul’s court case from Jerusalem and dismissed the charges. Paul was released. In 64 AD at the age of 26 Emperor Nero set Rome on fire with the intention of rebuilding it and calling it Neropolis, but when the irate public found out that Nero had started the fire Nero blamed a group called the Christians. Christians were arrested, tortured (by wild beasts in the arena, burned on poles to serve as lights after being cover with tar, etc.) Nero had Peter killed within a year of the fires. The Apostle Paul was decapitated during his second imprisonment and trial before Nero during the fall of 67 or spring of 68 AD on the Ostian Way. On June 9, 68 AD, at the age of 31, Nero stabbed himself in the neck to commit suicide instead of being captured by the Praetorian Guard who were searching to arrest him.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

  • Nkh …. “to strike”

In Genesis 20:6and Proverbs 6:29 to ng a woman is an euphemism for sexual relations.

shaking, melting and smoke:
Amos 9:5 – the Lord ng earth and it melts
Psalm 104:32 – the Lord ng mountains and they smoke
Psalm 144:5 – the Lord ng the mountains and it smokes

The Lord ng the hearts of men in 1 Samuel 10:26 and they become brave and valiant:

"Saul also went to his home at Gibeah, and with him went
men of valor whose hearts God had touched."
