Proverbs and The Contentious

 Contentious note

We are almost through Proverbs in my Reading Through the Bible group. Leviticus and Proverbs have been interesting to me. Reminders of how just being mindful of certain things in life can enrich and make for a happier life whether you’re Christian or not. Simple Goodness or Evil. Which is the preferred to follow? I see evil as having no fruitful outcome except for the evil doers so give me Goodness and Righteousness any day of the week. But as the Bible teaches to each his own for their outcome. Am I a contentious woman? I hope not, however, I do have my days that I’m out of sorts, but I think contention used in Proverbs means more surly attitudes or maybe downright mean? What is your take on contention? I may have it all wrong so would love to hear any thoughts on the subject.

As I’m reading through the Bible, I’m also following a wonderful gal who is sharing her thoughts on Proverbs via Doodling. Check out some of her great artwork doodles by clicking the image.

Live each day to the fullest. Get the most from each hour, each day, and each age of your life. Then you can look forward with confidence, and back without regrets. Be yourself ~ but be your best self. Dare to be different and to follow your own star. And don’t be afraid to be happy. Enjoy what is beautiful. Love with all your heart and soul. Believe that those you love, love you. Forget what you have done for your friends and remember what they have done for you. Disregard what the world owes you, and concentrate on what you owe the world.

When you are faced with a decision, make that decision as wisely as possible ~ then forget it. The moment of absolute certainty never arrives.

Above all, remember that GOD helps those who help themselves. Act as if everything depended upon you, and pray as if everything depended upon GOD.
