Proverbs 20-23; On wine and work

These chapters are broad and wide ranging.   They are difficult to summarize and many themes emerge…check them out.  Of particular note are the admonitions to be moderate with respect to drinking wine (20:1-2, 21:17, 23:7,20- 21, 30-35) and to be diligent in ones work (20:4-5, 11, 13, 25, 22:13).  Both ideas are anchored in discipline, the strength for its application coming from the Lord (22:17-21)
