20 Things That Are Better

Many times we discover, with hind-sight, that we could have done something better. Yet the Scriptures give us plenty of instruction for learning what is better and thus, avoid problems.

Sometimes this word better is also translated good or well or goodness or best.  So we can see that what is better is often very good, more excellent, or what would actually be best.

Let us learn and apply these simple things that are better so that we may, with Father’s help, live our life with fewer troubles, hopefully having less stress and strife.

Here is a list of only 20 of the things that Yahuwah [the LORD] considers better:

1.  The wisdom of Yahuwah  is better  —  than rubies. (Prov 8:11)

2.  A poor man  is better  —  than a liar. (Prov 19:22)

3.  Yahuwah’s love  is better  —  than wine. (Song 1:2)

4.  The end of a thing  is better  —  than the beginning. (Ecc 7:8)

5.  Yahuwah’s lovingkindness  is better  —  than life. (Psa 63:3)

6.  The patient in spirit  is better  —  than the proud in spirit. (Ecc 7:8)

7.  Not making a vow  is better  —  than making a vow and not paying. (Ecc 5:5)

8.  He that is slow to anger  is better  —  than the mighty. (Prov 16:32)

9.  To obey the Word of Yahuwah  is better  —  than sacrifice. (1Sam 15:22)

10.  He that rules his own spirit  is better  —  than he that takes a city. (Prov 16:32)

11.  A handful, with quietness  is better  —  than both hands full, with travail and vexation of spirit. (Ecc 4:6)

12.  A little, with righteousness  is better  —  than great revenues, without right. (Prov 16:8)

13.  To dwell in the wilderness  is better  —  than to dwell with a contentious and angry woman. (Prov 21:19)

14.  A dinner of herbs where love is  is better  —  than a fattened ox, and hatred therewith. (Prov 15:17)

15.  To hear the rebuke of the wise  is better  —  than to hear the song of fools. (Ecc 7:5)

16.  To go to the house of mourning  is better  —  than to go to the house of feasting. (Ecc 7:2)

17.  A little, with the fear of Yahuwah,  is better  —  than great treasure, and trouble therewith. (Prov 15:16)

18.  The poor that walks in his integrity  is better  —  than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich. (Prov 28:6)

19.  To be of a humble spirit with the lowly  is better  —  than to divide the spoil with the proud. (Prov 16:19)

20.  The blood of Yahushua Messiah speaks  better  —  than the blood of Abel. (Heb 12:24)
