Success Proverbs of Solomon: Audio Commentaries


Proverbs 3:16

“Length of days is in her right hand;
and in her left hand riches and honour.”

Success is taught in Proverbs! If you count long life, riches, and honor to be success! Solomon offers these and many other blessings as the result of wisdom. As the wisest man in human history, he taught wisdom in Proverbs.

Proverbs 28:13

“He that covereth his sins shall not prosper:
but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them
shall have mercy.”

Repentance opens doors to prosperity. If you hide sins, God sees each one and blows against your efforts. You will not get ahead in any part of life. Confess and forsake them right now. He will mercifully forgive you and bless you.

Proverbs 28:20

“A faithful man shall abound with blessings:
but he that maketh haste to be rich
shall not be innocent.”

Could you handle abounding with blessings? It is offered right here by combining faithfulness with contentment. Haste makes waste in many ways; slow down and do everything right, and blessings will pour in.

Proverbs 22:11

“He that loveth pureness of heart,
for the grace of his lips the king shall be his friend.”

Graciousness can take you to the top! Great men demand gracious colleagues. It begins in the heart, and it is most evident by speech. Solomon had closely observed the best, and this rule is essential for rising fast and far.

Proverbs 16:20

“He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good:
and whoso trusteth in the LORD, happy is he.”

A good and happy life is before you. Most miss both by foolish choices. The formula for this measure of success is easy, and it is taught right here. You face decisions and dilemmas daily – two needful solutions are freely offered.

Proverbs 22:4

“By humility and the fear of the LORD
are riches, and honour, and life.”

Riches, honor, and life are right here! God promises them, and His promises are surer than any offer you have ever read. All you need is humility and the fear of the Lord. You can learn the blessings and conditions in one verse.

Proverbs 27:18

“Whoso keepeth the fig tree
shall eat the fruit thereof:
so he that waiteth on his master shall be honoured.”

Professional advancement is easy, even for lowly and simple persons. Take good care of a rising manager, and he will take care of you. Bet on this rule. Make your boss so happy he cannot resist cutting you in on the real action.

Proverbs 15:22

“Without counsel purposes are disappointed:
but in the multitude of counsellors they are established.”

A multitude of counselors can save you from you! Solomon repeatedly called for testing ideas by others. It is easy to be too emotional about your ideas, miss the forest for the trees, or lack others’ expertise and experiences.

Proverbs 15:17

“Better is a dinner of herbs where love is,
than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.”

Priorities provide success for even the poor. When the history’s richest man tells you so, you should believe him. He said a simple meal with love is better than a feast with hatred. Note it well – a poor man can be successful!

Proverbs 31:12

“She will do him good and not evil
all the days of her life.”

A perfect wife makes everything wonderful! She can enhance all parts of your life. You can prosper in every area. Is there such a woman? Yes, indeed. Can she be found? Yes, again. A foolproof criterion is introduced here.
