The book of proverbs is one of my favourite reads, likewise any ethnic saying like this Chinese parable I want you guys to interpret; 'The reed that bends to the breeze does not break.' While brainstorming on it, lemme, share these few proverbs and apply it to situations;

1}A prudent man foresees evil and he hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.{22:3}. HUMPH! This pinched me because I have many times being the 'simple' and I got smacked really hard! I would liken this saying to what is happening in blogsphere; Religion, politics, sexuality and hair are controversial topics that some people keep their opinions to themselves {wise}, hence, nobody gat any ish to say about them, but someone like me who speaks, gets the s***! Which brings me to another saying: Whosoever guards his mouth and tongue keeps his soul from troubles.{21:23} You see! I don't listen! That is why I am here talking about this! #Lord help me!#

2} Who can say; 'I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?' {20:9} For every man way is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the heart. {21:2}
Hmmm, ain't we all guilty of this? Well, if you are not, I definitely am! Because I am doing it right now! #you get?#

3}A gift in secret, pacifies anger, and a bribe behind the back, a strong wrath.{21:14} ... I offended my hubby 2 days ago and he just dey carry face for me since,*side-eye* so I gat to do the needful...#putting on my thinking cap# I would also apply this saying; A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.{15:1}

4}Seldom set foot in your neighbour's house, lest he become weary of you and hate you! {25;17} Please all these relatives that knows only the direction to in-laws' house, abeg, respect yaself and siddon in your house!  And all these friends with the I- just-come-visit-attitude, abeg, e don do!  What is mobile network there for huh?

5}He who passes by and meddles in a quarrel not his own, is like one who takes a dog by the ears.{26:17}. OU-CH!!! My guys, I tried this nonsense while in school and joined a Christian sister to have an ish with somebody. Only for them to settle at my back and I was left with the towel hanging o! I was sooo, ashamed of myself ehn! I made peace with the person, and mind my business until I graduated. #over-sabi tinz#

Ok! My guys, that is the few am sharing for now. Meanwhile, I am waiting for your interpretation of the above-mentioned parable.#yes, go back up and read for those that always skip to the last paragraph#'ya!...ehehehe. Have a fun-blessed weekend.
