Defender Of The Fatherless 23:10-11

Defender Of The Fatherless
Proverbs 23:10-11

Do not move an ancient boundary stone
or encroach on the fields of the fatherless,
for their Defender is strong;
he will take up their case against you.

PCdc Commentary

Jesus possessed very little in life.
One thing he did have was his Father.
Not only his Heavenly Father, from eternity to eternity,
but also, his Earthly Father, who protected him until he died.

Jesus is the Defender of the Fatherless.
He protects the interests of the fatherless.
Jesus sacrificed himself so that he could share his Heavenly Father, as well.

Beware The Begrudging Host 23:6-8

Beware The Begrudging Host
Proverbs 23:6-8

Do not eat the food of a begrudging host,
do not crave his delicacies;
for he is the kind of person
who is always thinking about the cost.
“Eat and drink,” he says to you,
but his heart is not with you.
You will vomit up the little you have eaten
and will have wasted your compliments.

PCdc Commentary

Do not waste your time with the stingy.
They portend to be generous, but they are disingenuous.
