11/15/19: Hebrews 12:14-29; Psalm 113:1-114:8; Proverbs 27:18-20
I am always amazed at the way even very short verses of inspired scripture capture concepts that I cannot explain in several paragraphs. Today’s passage from Proverbs is such a verse:
Proverbs 27:19 As water reflects a face so a man’s heart reflects the man.
Matthew Henry writes: Let a man examine his own conscience, his thoughts, affections, and intentions. Let him behold his natural face in the glass of the divine law (James 1:23), and he may discern what kind of man he is and what is his true character, which it will be of great use to every man rightly to know.
