Proverbs of a 36 yr old man
Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you. Needing to be led with ropes to make them obey. Once under control by force they are willing to submit and come near. Many heartaches await wicked people because the way they live. They lose common sense over time and not even consequence can control them. Not even circumstance can bring submission. Many times only justice can tame a wild soul. Praise God that mercy surrounds those who trust the Lord. Seeking understanding is a bridle to them. Asking God for wisdom is total submission to his will. No longer needing to be restrained but led by the Spirit of God. As we draw near to God He draws near to us. Nothing forced or coerced only pure genuine love keeping us free in righteous living..
