To America and the superpowers of the world “God judges motives”.
To Africa and the so-called third world countries “God is not a foolish God rather he is the embodiment of wisdom. He created everyone first as a baby and they grow up to either love or hate instruction”.
A foolish person is one who grew up to hate instruction like the old king who will no more be admonished. He came out of prison to reign whereas he that was born in his kingdom became poor. The king ruled and installed men into power who he pulled strings on like puppets. They ate wickedness like bread and spoke with no remorse for they have had their consciences seared with hot iron and the well of kindness seem to have dried up inside them.
Moreover, the profit of the earth (crude oil, gold, diamonds, crops, tin, coal, etc) is for all; the king himself is served by the field.
America or any of the developed countries does not offer anyone anything free. You have to pay for services and products. Can’t you see?
Wisdom is better than rubies and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.
Give instruction to a wise man and he will be yet wiser; teach a just man and he will increase in learning. If you are wise, you will be wise for yourself (your family and your nation) but if you scorn, you alone will bear it.
A wise son makes a glad father but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother.
Treasures of wickedness profit nothing but righteousness delivers from death
In the lips of him that has understanding wisdom is found but a ROD is for the BACK of him that is void of understanding.
The desire of the righteous is only good; but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.
He that troubles his own house (his own country) shall inherit the wind; and the FOOL shall be SERVANT to the WISE of heart.
So I returned and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun; and behold the tears of such as were oppressed and they had no comforter. On the side of the oppressor there was power; but they had no comforter.
Don't be surprised if you see a poor person being oppressed by the powerful and if justice is being miscarried throughout the land. For every official is under orders from higher up, and matters of justice get lost in red tape and bureaucracy
All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again
Then I saw that WISDOM excels FOLLY, as far as light excels darkness.
To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven: a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to keep silent and a time to speak; a time of war and a time of peace
Also he has set the world in their hearts, so that no man can find out the work that God makes from the beginning to the end.
That which has been is now; and that which is to be has already been.
For a dream comes through the multitude of business and a fool’s voice is known by multitude of words.
Better is it that you should not vow than to vow and not pay.
He that loves things will not be satisfied with things and the increase of such.
There is a sore evil which I have seen under the sun, namely riches kept for the owners thereof to their hurt.
As he came forth of his mother’s womb, naked shall he go as he came, and shall take nothing of his labour, which he may carry away in his hand.
A good name is better than precious ointment, and the day of death than the day of one’s birth.
It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the songs of fools.
Surely oppression makes a wise man mad; and a gift destroys the heart.
Because sentence against an evil work is not speedily executed, therefore the hearts of the sons of men are fully set in them to do evil.
BUT IT SHALL NOT BE WELL WITH THE WICKED; neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow because he fears not before God.
Whatsoever your hands find to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave where you are going (the final destination of every living creature).
I have seen servants upon horses and princes walking as servants upon the earth (Nigerians washing toilets abroad and being subservient to a white man in his own land).
If the iron is blunt, and he does not whet the edge, then must he put more strength; but wisdom is profitable to direct.
WOE TO YOU, O LAND WHEN YOUR KING IS A CHILD (foolishness is akin to childhood) AND YOUR PRINCES EAT IN THE MORNING!
BLESSED ARE YOU, O LAND, WHEN YOUR KING IS THE SON OF THE NOBLES, AND THE PRINCES EAT IN DUE SEASON, FOR STRENGTH, AND NOT FOR DRUNKENNESS!!
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep his commandments; for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgement, with every secret thing, whether it is good or whether it is evil.
