All words are absolute vanity. I will surely live deep in the forest rather than waste the movement of my lips on complete uselessness.

My dearest beloved friend, respect would not express my feelings for you. This and the love I have for you always. I know the things you wish to achieve. So, I do hope all your dreams come to you and more. I pray your knowledge is abounding and grows considerably. I pray your wealth grows more fulfilling every day. Your endeavors are supremely accomplished. Your future spouse cherishes you unconditionally and the bond of love never grows dim. That in your life all hopes are precisely achieved and old age may find you with no regrets. Sorrowful, for I know I will under no circumstances be in it.
Those who despise discipline will live in trash; respect is for the man who embraces self control.
Proverbs 14:18 Notes
by Kevin Poston
18 The simple inherit folly: but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.
The simple here is born into a family of fools. When a child becomes old enough to learn foolishness, he inherits it all. He knows no different! This is a sad depiction of the moral decay of the family. How many millions of children are born amidst absolute fools. That is all these children will ever know. Born into a house full of Godlessness, drugs, drunks or abuse. Since this foolishness will be their first learning experience. More than likely, this is all they will ever be themselves. The prudent think much of actions before involving themselves in them. This brings wisdom and knowledge. After all their thinking, they are crowned with knowledge.

Proverbs 14:17 Notes

17 He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly: and a man of wicked devices is hated.
Those who are easily aroused to anger are dangerous. The dangers of these people are innumerable. They are fools Ecclesiastes 7:9. Promote folly Proverbs 14:29. Stir up strife Proverbs 15:18. Stir up dissension and abounds in transgression Proverbs 29:22. They that are soon angry and prone to these dangers indeed deal foolishly. Those prone to anger should be avoided by the wise man, if they cherish wisdom. Also, when others see that this person is full of anger, he is hated.

Proverbs 14:16 Notes
by Kevin Poston
16 A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident.
The wise fear God and his judgement for sin.They turn away from evil since the end thereof is death. But, the fool who has no sense of right and wrong will go straight into wicked things. He recognizes no difference because this man has chosen foolishness and refuses God's wisdom and commands. Even being confident when pursuing evil. He in fact believes evil is profitable and honorable. They are like the man who pursues the immoral women. Proverbs 5:5 Her feet go down to death; her steps lead straight to the grave. This regards all evil!

Ecclesiastes 7:9-14 Notes
by Kevin Poston
Verse 9 Do not be hasty or quickly aroused to anger. This shows you are a great fool. It shows what sets upon your heart. This shows you have no patience, understanding, wisdom, knowledge, or love. Also, that you have no concern in obtaining either. Therefore, wisdom will never rest in the heart of an angry fool.
Verse 10 In all past generations there has noticeably been good and evil. This is recognizable by studying any sort of history. You do not inquire wisely, for you know not without a doubt it is so. Less, you speak and be made a liar and a fool.
Verses 11-12 Notice “wisdom is good with an inheritance”. When suddenly acquired and not slaved over. For slaving to obtain money will be a hindrance, on a path to search for wisdom. It is profitable to seek wisdom. Wisdom and money are both defenses. Therefore, together are a double defense against foolishness. Of course, if the money is used wisely. But always, wisdom is still more excellent. Obtaining it with or without money. For, the wise man follows God’s laws. Which give him a better life on earth and the possibility of reaching heaven after death.
Verses 13-14 Consider God’s work. Though, it seems crooked and disfigured to us humans. It is very foolish to quarrel with the most mighty. Also, impossible for man to change. It would be like chasing the wind. Be joyful and satisfied with what God gives you. Whether joyous or adverse. For, after any amount of rebellion. God’s will, can only be accepted. It is your choice alone if your acceptance will be painful or easily submissive. For, who can contend with he who is mightier than you? (Eccl 6:10)
