Proverbs 23 – Good advice for the season

When we have the opportunity to meet with someone important perhaps we need to heed this advice….

Pro 23:1  When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee:

Pro 23:2  And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite.

Pro 23:3  Be not desirous of his dainties: for they are deceitful meat.

Pro 23:4  Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.

Pro 23:5  Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.

Pro 23:6  Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats:

Pro 23:7  For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.

Pro 23:8  The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words.
