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.

Below is a list of only 20 of the things that Yahuwah [the LORD] considers better!

Let us learn and apply these simple guidelines of what is better to our own lives. With Father’s help, living according to these guidelines will help us live with fewer troubles, and eventually, have less stress and strife!

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)

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)

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

“There is a difficulty about disagreeing with God. He is the source from which all your reasoning power comes: you could not be right and He wrong any more than a stream can rise higher than its own source. When you are arguing against Him you are arguing against the very power that makes you able to argue at all: it is like cutting off the branch you are sitting on.”
– C. S. Lewis

For an indepth study on Biblical guidelines for learning how to study God's Word for ourselves, see the following:

Search the Scriptures

Take A Closer Look!

The Son of God:
Yahuwah Elohim [the Hebrew name for the LORD God], Who is the Living, Eternal God, Creator of all things, Who can do whatever His pleases, came to this earth, born into this world through a virgin birth. He did this to communicate His character, His nature, His power, His purpose, and His plans. Only Yahushua Messiah [Jesus Christ] could have accomplished this mission, because . . . He was not an ordinary man!!


Thirsty Souls are looking for the true refreshing that reaches into our inner-most-being. We yearn for the pure, clean, and undefiled things. Thirsty Souls are looking for the things that are permanently satisfying, and do not fade away — things that are Eternal!
Can we find these Eternal things? Can we find the pure, undefiled ‘Living Waters‘ that truly satisfies our thirsty soul?
