Everyday Wisdom | Proverbs 23:6-8
THURSDAY, MARCH 05, 2015
Posted by: Ripley Primitive Baptist Church | more..

by Louis Sacran

"Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats: For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee. The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words." Proverbs 23:6-8

Here, we learn the great value of discernment. Eating with an individual in the Hebrew mind was more than just a quick bite to eat. Any time you were invited to share a meal, you were invited to table fellowship, which was a sign of intimacy and friendship in the culture. This is why the Pharisees became so upset when Jesus was eating with sinners. It wasn’t that they happened to be sharing the same food, but that Jesus was openly receiving and declaring table fellowship with sinners, whom the religious leaders despised. In our passage today, Solomon says; do not accept everyone’s invitation of friendship. This seems kind of odd at first, but as we read on, we see the wisdom in discernment. The truth about the man that Solomon is describing is that his pursuit of your friendship is not sincere; he has his own agenda that does not include your good. The benefit that you think you are receiving will soon turn to your loss. Again, it seems odd to reject someone’s invitation to fellowship, because our culture tries to be so inclusive. However, when the desire to be inclusive grows so great that discernment is thrown out the window, trouble is not far off. We must remember that according to God, “A companion of fools shall be destroyed”, and “evil communications corrupt good manners”. May we work and pray for discernment, that we might choose our influences with wisdom.
