I highly recommend this book for times of extreme "mountains" and "valleys".
When the proverbial you-know-what hits the fan, where do you go?
Steven Scott is level headed in times of need. He expounds upon all the little "hints" that King Solomon refers to casually. The original Hebrew is not available to most of us, and who is there to teach us?
Herein is the gold mine of wisdom! Steven Scott highlights what might otherwise be brushed aside as perhaps coincidental. He does look at the Hebrew meanings and he does expand the thoughts behind what seems to be "casual".
Not all of us had parents that paid close attention when we were small, taught us by example, or had time to explain all the "suggestion and innuendos" of life. Most, like me, got up in the morning, were hurried off to the bus stop and at the end of the day ate dinner, went to bed, and that was it, for most of our school days. When we turned 18, most were out the door, waving goodbye over our shoulder.
("Write home when you get work....."). Life seems so inadequate at times. They passed down to us what they did and didn't get as THEY grew up. Well, time for a change, maybe? yes?
This book is what I wished I had gotten above all the reading, writing, and 'rithmatic. For all the times I wished I had had a different, more informed childhood, this book may make up for all that didn't get said or done, back when it would have counted the most.
Reading this book reminds me that it is not too late. and that is SO TRUE! Be encouraged!
This book REALLY does teach the stuff that public school never (or rarely) touches, that a bachelor's degree will never afford me, and my pastor or rabbi cannot teach me. Few educational situations is gonna touch this.
I have a saying that goes like this: your Rabbi cannot take you some place where he/she have never been themselves. It's not a put down on clergy (at least not in this case), but it's good to recognize that clergy are very often looking for a paycheck and may be at burn out on people's problems, and cannot solve their own issues. and many don't even know what their own issues are; how are they going to help me with mine?
Counselors are NOT trained in this stuff, and a Ph.D (in anything) may not accomplish what we thought it was suppose to do when we set out on that particular journey.
Adult educational expectations aside, this is the inward workings and dynamics of our very souls, and only ourselves and G-D can really effect those changes; IF we know what is needed.
We need answers to questions we often cannot articulate.
WHEN we/you/I get to a particular point where we want to do that sort of sifting and changing, THIS BOOK will go in that direction and help you in that next step. It has questions and "tips" at the end of
each chapter that are worthy of study, contemplation, and then action.
I'm starting a notebook/journal around this. It is FOOD for my soul. I'd love to start a book club around this book alone.
No synagogue or church will have this as one of their offerings. For the most part, you won't find someone, (besides King Solomon) that will give you forthright, correct advise(don't misread this as "inflexible", quite the opposite), It will tell you who is a fool and who is wise...That by itself is invaluable. This book will tell you how to recognize a wise man or woman.
TOO bad Washington DC doesn't get a hold of this!!! But I recommend this book for EVERY living soul!!
If you are a parent, get this and devour it. If you are a grandparent, start a reading time with your grand children around these chapters. If you want some answers and have none, be quick to consider this.
If you are incarcerated, GET THIS if you can. If you are just getting out of lock up, or if you are in a 12 step program, this will teach you where nothing else will about staying clean, sober, and ON the wagon!
and not returning to the horrid place you just left. and ENJOY!!! You won't get this anywhere else.
An added bonus is because it is wisdom from God (through King Solomon), I can rely on it to be true and worthy of putting my full weight on it. So I am!
Thank you Steven Scott for writing this book, Thank you Gary Smalley for suggesting proverbs to Steven and Thank you mostly to God for giving us this wisdom!
I haven't had a vision in so long, I feel so energized to just to have one!
