As I have mentioned, I use Logos Bible Software for my research and writing. It is, in my opinion, the premier Bible software available today. I was surprised and delighted recently to discover Logos even offers the study notes for the Apostolic Study Bible! I have been using this feature to speed up a writing project I’m currently working on for God’s Word for Life, a new curriculum made available by the Pentecostal Publishing House.
Today Logos is kicking off “12 Days of Logos,” during which 12 Logos products are available for 12 days at 50-65% off. If you’re interested, you can check it out by clicking on the link below.
Proverbs 11:12 (NKJV) — 12 He who is devoid of wisdom despises his neighbor, But a man of understanding holds his peace.
Lack of wisdom. When people despise their neighbors, it is a sign that they lack wisdom. A central biblical principle is that people are to be concerned about the welfare of their neighbors. Not only does this attitude promote strong and secure neighborhoods, but it also provides an opportunity for Christian witness. Those who despise and mistreat their neighbors lay the groundwork for their own destruction.
On the other hand, if people know how to abstain from contention or retaliation, even in the face of imagined or real wrongs, it is a sign that they have understanding. One of the greatest evidences of genuine strength of character is the ability to refrain from saying damaging things that could be said.
