Proverbs Challenge (Day 26)

Today is Day 26 of the Proverbs Challenge, and you’ve guessed it, today we’ll be reading Chapter 26

Below is the Proverb that I want to talk through:

“Interfering in someone else’s argument is as foolish as yanking a dog’s ears.”

Proverbs 26:17

My Thoughts: As someone who was mauled by a dog, when I was in Primary School, I can tell you that it’s not something I want anyone to experience

Therefore, this Proverb was very visual for me, in understanding what happens when we meddle in other people’s business!

Yanking a dog’s ears is an easy way to get bitten because their ears are so sensitive. The same goes for people who are arguing or fighting! In that moment, it is a sensitive moment, and therefore, interfering can usually mean they’ll turn that anger on the one who interferes

My Reflection: This proverb was an easy reflection, but one that can deliver simple wisdom…

It’s best to simply keep out of arguments that are none of our business, or at the very least, we need to try and wait to become involved, until the dispute has stopped, or at least cooled off – because maybe, then maybe, you can then help to mend their differences and their relationship

Rebecca Brand

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
