Proverbs Notes 13:18

#Proverbs 13:18
Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth #instruction: but he that regardeth #reproof shall be honoured.

The man who refuses instruction ( order or demand) will fall into #povertyand shame. He will lack the sense to gain #prosperity because he refuses advice. Advice that would lead him in the correct path. He will be shamed for his prideful refusal. We know instruction here refers to fearing #God. Which were related in earlier passages. The man that listens to reproof (reveal faults) will be honored for his #wisdom in doing so. Avoiding #pridewhich brings shame.
