I came across an interesting sermon on Proverbs 13:12. Too lazy to read in detail but the gist seems to be, your hope needs to be in something solid, or you’ll have problems. And something solid is God.
This was more interesting to me. Just, emphasizing how it says tree of life. So it kinda makes sense, a little. Just warning you not to put hope in wrong things. Put your hope in the Lord, and you’ll receive the tree of life.
Whoa, I just read this sermon and I thought it was great. Really good. It doesn’t really elucidate the passage, but it’s a great sermon. John, read it.
This guy interprets “hope deferred” as meaning losing hope. That kind of makes sense.
Check this out. It was some Congressman addressing President Clinton.
I love the web.
