We’ve been going through Proverbs for family devotions, and we had quite the humorous exchange today about this verse:
“When you sit down to eat with a ruler,
observe carefully what is before you.” -Proverbs 23:1 (ESV)
My older sister voiced that she’s always had this picture in mind of a literal ruler, with the inches and centimeters.
“Why would you eat with a ruler, anyway? That’s what forks and spoons are for.”
Dad quips with a chuckle, “Yeah, the peas would fall right off. You’d have a bit of trouble with that.”
God is so good to supply us with a sense of humor. I really believe God can laugh too, because we are made in His image, and we are able to laugh at good, wholesome jokes. Isn’t He good?
