268. Sleep when it is quiet

Proverbs 6:10-11

“Sleep a little. Doze a little. Fold your hands and twiddle your thumbs. Suddenly, everything is gone, as though it had been taken by an armed robber.”

As ones who practice modern survivalism and being self-reliant when it comes to worldly things we must stay busy when the sun is shining. There will be times when GOD will provide you with rest but be smart enough to take it.

266. Be a good example

Proverbs 2: 20

“Follow the example of good people and live an honest life”

Today, it may be hard to find many who are considered good people. Good may be in the eye of the beholder also. If you ask a lot of people if someone is good, you may find some who like them and some who hate them. No matter what we can’t please everyone, and some will hate us. Some will hate others just because they are successful.

The best we can do is follow the examples set forth to us by the holy books. We should be good to others and at the same time we should not be a push over either.

265. Is it to good to be true

Proverbs 1:17

“They are like a bird that sees the bait but ignores the trap.”

When you hear of a good deal always proceed with caution. I once heard of great deal on an enclosed trailer and I was going to use it for storage. We sure enough it was a scam. They wanted me to pay through eBay and then they would send the trailer to me. I thought this was strange so I googled the arrangement and sure enough it happens to people quiet often. They send the money and end up that much poorer.

Always in life remember the following, “If you expect it, then you must inspect it.”
