Proverbs, What Inspires You

When we're all out of motivation, we can look up the Bible for some inspirational quotes or better yet, read a chapter. But for those who don't have time to open a book and look up a proverb, you may find several places that display these quotes billboards, signs, pamphlets and even on the Internet. In this particular article, we're going to look at a couple of proverbs that pretty much sums up the reasons why we are still fighting amongst ourselves. These proverbs are also discussed in services at churches like the charismatic churches in Lexington KY but you always get a chance to read them online.

"Without wood a fire goes out; without gossip a quarrel dies down" is what the book of Proverbs chapter twenty six, verse twenty reads. Now that's pretty self-explanatory but let's take an in depth explanation at this particular proverb. Fire requires wood to keep itself aflame this is the example used in this scenario and what is used to compare with quarrels. When wood is continually fed to fire, it will simply have to keep on burning; at the same time, when a quarrel is fed with gossips and neither side stands down, it will simply have a reason to continue.

These teachings are very useful to apply on our daily lives and you'll learn a lot from attending services at the charismatic churches in Lexington KY. Wars are constantly being fought across several races and countries and this is because neither side refuses to stand down. The moral here is if you have a quarrel with somebody, don't add more fuel to keep it going, ignore the gossips and discuss it straight up with that person. Chances are you will have it resolved before it grows to an even bigger fight.

Well, another proverb you might find useful is written in chapter twenty, verse nineteen: "A gossip betrays a confidence; so avoid a man who talks too much" which basically defines the fuel in the previous proverb. There are two things you will need to look out for: one is to not listen to gossips or ignore them as much as possible and two is to not be a talebearer and spread gossips yourself.

Countless quarrels are started because of misunderstandings and more will come if these aren't resolved. Gossips betray confidence so don't be gossipers if you don't want to lose friends. Charismatic churches in Lexington KY discuss these proverbs and more on their services so if you're in need of more wisdom, you may give them a visit.
