(Proverbs 16:29 KJV) A violent man enticeth his neighbour, and leadeth him into the way that is not good.
Proverbs deals with a long list of personality types. We have the sluggard, the fool and the wise. Here we have the “violent (2555)” “man” (376) (man of violence NASB). These different people are not creations of Solomon’s imagination but products of his experience. Part of the purpose here is to make us aware, to give us goals and to warn us.
As always, do a self check. Think a moment about how you relate to others. Most of us have no trouble seeing this in others but we can be totally blind to our own actions. So take a look.
Do you find yourself getting your way because people don’t want to see your temper? Do people walk on eggs around you? Are there certain topics they are afraid to touch?
So? Don’t make this a preaching point for others but an examination point for yourself. Any changes needed? Personal remodeling does not require a large bank account, just a big God. And honesty.
