Open Rebuke Better Than Secret Love

Verse of the Day, November 3, 2020

Proverbs 27:5-6 KJV “Open rebuke is better than secret love. [6] Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.”

Things done in the open are better than those done in secret. Open correction is better than secret correction; open love is better than secret love. Open rebuke is better than secret love; the thing is a friend will be open to you, telling you the truth, even when it is painful.

Nevertheless, the kisses or pacifying of an enemy are deceitful. Unfortunately, in our world, today, too many people are being deceived by their enemies with kisses.

People enjoy kind deceits from enemies better than wounding faithfulness and healing words from friends. Don’t be deceived, learn to take in the open rebuke!

Proverbs 27 King James Version

2 Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.

3 A stone is heavy, and the sand weighty; but a fool’s wrath is heavier than them both.

4 Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before envy?

5 Open rebuke is better than secret love.

6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.

7 The full soul loatheth an honeycomb; but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.

8 As a bird that wandereth from her nest, so is a man that wandereth from his place.

9 Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the sweetness of a man’s friend by hearty counsel.

10 Thine own friend, and thy father’s friend, forsake not; neither go into thy brother’s house in the day of thy calamity: for better is a neighbour that is near than a brother far off.

11 My son, be wise, and make my heart glad, that I may answer him that reproacheth me.

12 A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished.
