Tues 091117 pm 2Pt 2 Prov 15-16

2 Peter 2
2.6  Sodom and Gomorrah...  "having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh"  Jude 7
2.7  righteous Lot...  I get really tired of preachers who trash Lot and say he made a wicked choice to move toward Sodom and Gomorrah.  Whatever his mistakes may have been, he is clearly identified as righteous.
2.14  hearts trained in greed...  What a sobering thought.  

Proverbs 15
15.8  This is an interesting verse because we always seem to think that God is desperate for any praise he can get.
15.16  fear of the Lord... is contrasted with trouble that comes with great treasure.
15.18   "Slow to anger" is good.
15.33  the fear of the Lord...

Proverbs 16
16.2  the Lord weighs the heart...  and we should too.  Something to keep in mind.
16.6  the fear of the Lord...  An important benefit of the fear of the Lord.
16.9  the Lord establishes his steps...  Man proposes, but God disposes.
16.32  better than the mighty...  "Ruling your own spirit" is a huge advantage.
