A lazy person will always have an excuse for not doing the things they should. But, when the time comes that he will regret not doing those things, he will expect others to help him out. Why is that?
:11 Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right.
We need to make sure we are teaching our children the difference between right and wrong, because even children are known by the things they do. My Mother once asked my boys (and I ask them occasionally, too), "Would you rather be known as 'Oh, no! It's the Dorse Boys!!' or 'Oh look, it's the Dorse Boys!!' Which do you think would be the better of the two?" They all knew they would rather be know as the second.
21:23 Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.
Keeping our mouths shut in certain instances could sure keep us out of a lot of trouble!
The next chapters are 1 Kings 10-13.
