The End of The Beginning etc etc

Today I read;

  • Genesis 50:1 - Exodus 2:10
  • Matthew 16:13-17:9
  • Psalm 21:1-13
  • Proverbs 5:1-6
Ahh! We've finished one book! We are heading somewhere!
I was studying for my management class, and came to find out there's a difference between leaders and managers. Leaders are followed not because they're intimidating but because they're respected. David was so respected, that the Egyptians mourned his father 70 days instead of the usual 40. He was respected and honored because he was respectful and honored people around him, more so the King.

Genesis 50:20  You plotted evil against me, but God turned it into good, in order to preserve the lives of many people who are alive today because of what happened. 

When man plots for evil, God can turn it into good, which we also see as we meet Moses. God turned a bad situation into the salvation of his people years later.

Proverbs 5:2  Then you will know how to behave properly, and your words will show that you have knowledge. 

And also some wisdom for couples:

Proverbs 5:3-6  The lips of another man's wife may be as sweet as honey and her kisses as smooth as olive oil, 
but when it is all over, she leaves you nothing but bitterness and pain. 
She will take you down to the world of the dead; the road she walks is the road to death. 
She does not stay on the road to life; but wanders off, and does not realize what is happening.
