Know and Understand our Bible

PROVERBS 26:9

9Like a thornbush in a drunkard’s hand is a proverb in the mouth of a fool.


26: 9 This proverb is a warning to be careful in the application of proverbs. A proverb misapplied by a fool can be a dangerous thing and can actually cause harm. A foolish boss might claim that the proverb “The appetite of laborers works for them; their hunger drives them on” (16: 26) gives permission to underpay workers in order to keep them hungry. All Bible verses need to be read in the light of the entire witness of Scripture, and this could never be a valid interpretation.

how often do we see people giving a opinion of what the Bible says? I am sure most of us have seen it explained multiple different ways.And just like a wrongly applied Proverb we can get or give the wrong meaning of a scripture.

ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and always try to have a sound understanding of all of God's words so that we might not lead someone astray!
