Do these verses remind you of a particular person?

We were reading Proverbs 24 today as a family and we came across some verses that reminded me of someone. Just thought I would share them.

Verse 21-22 of chapter 24:
My son, fear the Lord and the king; Do not associate with those who are given to change, [are you thinking of the same person I'm thinking of?] For their calamity will rise suddenly, And who knows the ruin that comes from both of them?

Okay, here's another one:
Verse 24-25 of chapter 24:
He who says to the wicked, "You are righteous," Peoples will curse him, nations will abhor him; But to those who rebuke the wicked will be delight, and a good blessing will come upon them.

I don't know if you thought of the same person that I did, but when we read those verses this morning, my dad and I both gasped and blurted out, "Barack Obama!" Maybe Obama hasn't yet been cursed by peoples, or been abhorred by nations, but his calamity will rise suddenly, and who knows what ruin will befall him?

  1. Creepy. I thought of him too. There has been change alright, but not a change the people wanted...sad...


I love hearing your comments! As you leave them, please keep in mind Ephesians 4:29: "Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear." Thank you!
