Sharing an Insight – Lesson 3

    Sometimes you come across a proverb that makes you laugh.  That happened to me this week as I was reading the ones for this lesson about the importance of getting good advice and being open to correction.  Did you happen to read Proverbs 27: 14 – “If a man loudly blesses his neighbor early in the morning, it will be taken as a curse”?  Even words of blessing, the ones that are meant to be an encouragement to someone, must be well-timed.  How true it is!  When you look at the life of Jesus, you can’t help but be impressed that His timing was always perfect.  He came to do His Father’s will and He waited for just the right time all along the way.  “Help me, Jesus, to wait for your direction, so that even my ‘morning enthusiasm’ will be a blessing and not a curse.”
