June 24, Proverbs 22:4

 

“The payoff for meekness and Fear-of- God is plenty and honor and a satisfying life.”

Proverbs 22:4 MSGA verse of the day from the Bible presented in Eugene Peterson’s contemporary version called The Message. Accompanied by a personal reflection below.


Humility and love of God are the two recommendations that Solomon is making here.  I said love of God, by the way.  Here’s hoping you reap that payoff, gentle reader!

    1. You’re right in that the translation by Mr. Petersen is somewhat unclear at first, and I think I had to read it a couple times myself. Unless you are referring to my reflection on the verse — which might actually be even more ambiguous, and for that I am sorry! On another note, thank you for your title in addressing me; it is lovely that the thought is reciprocated!

      1. I was complimenting your reflection on the verse! You say it plainly but it caught me off guard and it took me a few times to understand what I was reading; subtle and effective.
