The Wisdom of the Proverbs – 4 Videos
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text css_animation=”zoomIn”]Description: Proverbs is a book to show us how we can think like God, because it shows us what God would do in each circumstance. A life ‘that is all about me’ may make us clever, efficient, rich and all manner of things but we will never be wise.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text][embedyt]…

“A gentle answer turns away wrath,
But a harsh word stirs up anger.
The tongue of the wise commends knowledge,
But the mouth of the fool gushes folly.
The eyes of the Lord are everywhere,
Keeping watch on the wicked and the good.
The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life,
But a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.”
 (Proverbs 15:1-4)

My mom is strong. Yes, she is beautiful, everyone comments on her beauty, she´s probably softer than anyone who would criticise her, she´s elegant and often children and teenagers look up to her, but she is strong. A lot of the blogs I follow, I follow because I like the aesthetics, sometimes the general message I don´t agree with but most of the content doesn´t offend me, if it does I would just block. She is strong though. Strength as an adjective is not an insult. A strong woman is a beautiful woman, there is grace in being strong, in nature the weak rarely survive. Being strong mentally means you´re not a failure. Being strong emotionally means you´re a good friend. Being strong physically means you actually look attractive and are not too sickly looking or too fat. Strength is beautiful and it will always be a good adjective. Strength is a beautiful thing and it is a good characteristic to have. My mother is strong and beautiful, and elegant and brave.  (Even if you reblog this, I am only referring to MY mother, this is a personal message for my blog)

Happy Mother’s Day
“She opens her arms to those who are poor. She reaches out her hands to those who are needy.”
She puts on strength and honor as if they were her clothes. She can laugh at the days that are coming. She speaks wisely. She teaches faithfully. She watches over family matters. She is busy all the time. Her children stand up and call her blessed. Her husband also rises up, and he praises her.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭31:20, 25-28‬
“Remember to tell the mothers in your life that you love them and appreciate them.”

@africanproverbspage: A person`s character is as inseparable from him or her as a shadow is to a body. Our character follows us wherever we go! Even if you try to hide it, it's still who you are on the inside. And it will be only a matter of time that that person you are will come out openly. You see, character is not necessarily what you are known to be. What you are known to be is your reputation. It is not even what you think you are. What you think you are is your opinion and that does not always agree with who you really are. Character is a composite of your thoughts, your principles, your actions and your words. It is not just who you are. It's the common thread that runs through what you are, when you are, how you are and whom you are. What do I mean by that? Some people are one thing when they go to certain places, say church and another thing when they are at say home. Or they are one thing if something big is at stake for them, and another thing when nothing is in for them . And they are who they are depending on whom they are dealing with. If they are dealing with people of a certain color or country they are one thing and another thing when they are dealing with others. Be true! #TagAFriendToReadThis! #Equatorial#GuineanProverb #AfricanProverbsPage #africanproverb

But this theology can fail to serve life. It takes a historical event of violence and misapplies it to a spiritual truth. Jesus' death on the cross was not a spiritual illumination. It was a public execution performed by an oppressive empire. The brutality of this violence is mystified, absorbed into a spiritual affirmation.
What happens when violent realities are transubstantiated into spiritual teachings?
You’ve heard it or said it yourself. A mother loses her son to suicide. In an effort to comfort her you say, 'God has a purpose in this. He sends pain to make us strong. You may not feel it now, but you will learn to give thanks for this experience, because through it, God will strengthen your faith.'
These words take the grieving mother away from the reality of her lost child. Tragedy is renamed a spiritual trial, designed by God for the mother's edification. God becomes the sender of torture, who injures us then comforts us—a perverse love.
When Jesus' crucifixion serves as a metaphor for spiritual processes of transformation, or a mystical illumination of God's abiding presence, violence is justified as sacred. In this mode, the infliction of pain can be re-inscribed as a holy action. Violence can be justified as a disciplining of the spirit.
This theology can lead to the intentional cultivation of pain. For example, in the fifteenth century Catherine of Genoa believed that through denying her body food she would be able to die to earthly appetites and learn to live with total trust in God. In a dialogue between her body and her soul, her body argues that food is important, that if she stops eating bread, she will forget the necessities of the body, and this will make her insensitive to the needs of the poor. Her soul retorts that eating bread takes her away from total trust in God. What good does it do if you save the body, but lose your soul? Her soul wins this argument. Catherine dies of starvation.
The spiritualizing of suffering makes God the author of all pain, who uses pain to edify or purify human beings. Dying and rising with Christ can easily become crucifying parts of ourselves in internal purgation of the unholy; or crucifying other human beings for a holy cause.
The mysticism of the cross teaches that violence is God's way of transforming people and communities into greater spiritual well-being. It clouds the realities of human violence in a haze of spiritual glory.
God is not the author of human violence and does not sanction cruelty and torture. To inflict pain on ourselves is not virtuous and to inflict it on others is not edifying or transforming.
Rita Nakashima Brock and Rebecca Ann Parker, Proverbs of Ashes: Violence, Redemptive Suffering, and the Search for What Saves Us
