Proverbs 17:4 – "An evildoer listens to wicked lips..."

The father’s point in this proverb is to urge his son not to listen to wicked words. A wise son will never join evildoers or join liars. Good people must make it clear that they do not welcome wicked words. Sometimes refusing to listen to wicked talk exacts a price.

Refining our rants means taking the opinions we have and the raw emotion we feel and backing them up with facts. It means taking an honest look at our ideas to find the best way to communicate them to other people.

Proverbs 16:4 – “The LORD has made everything for its purpose..."

Some things, God tells us, we will never know because His ways are higher than our ways (Isaiah 55:9), and some of His plans He keeps sealed until the end of time (Revelation 10:4).
