Rebuke from the Wise? Or Continual Praise by the Masses

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for the many things that make up our reality in this world we live in. Things that are so interesting when I stop to look closely at them. This morning it was interesting how an apple packed last night inside a sealed zip-lock bag was completely wet this morning while still in that small sealed bag. And what is even more interesting is that it is water that appeared on the apple! Water is so interesting in all its many forms … especially snow, sleet, drizzle and mist. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools. (Ecclesiastes 7:5)

Lord, it’s me again. I’m here as usual to pray on behalf of Lindsey. And today, Lindsey, is a serious reminder for you from King Solomon. In Ecclesiastes he included this serious insight into how to stay on track on the path God has set before us. He looks at things you may hear today. If you have godly people around you and you start getting a bit off track, they may rebuke you for what you are saying or doing.  Then you could just go look at your facebook or youtube and listen to many many people signing your praise. Solomon tells you which is better. Seek out good godly friends who will watch out for you Lindsey. And then consider their rebuke as far more precious than a thousand people singing your praise that day. And we will give the glory to God. Glory. The Glory is all his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

ESV:
It is better for a man to hear the rebuke of the wise than to hear the song of fools.

GW:
It is better to listen to wise people who reprimand you than to fools who sing your praises.

KJV translation note

The King James Version is a beautiful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, however I sometimes find Old English hard to understand fully. 1 or 2 other translations can help clarify what it is saying so I can understand it. More Info CLICK: References
