Summary: THE RIGHT HAND, A PLACE OF HONOR

  Study Tools

RIGHT HAND, LEFT HAND

OBSERVATION: MANY HEBREW WORDS ARE TRANSLATED “RIGHT HAND” WITH DIFFERENT SHADES OF MEANING. THE TWO MOST NOTED MEANING CONVEY THE SENSE OF BEING STRAIGHT OR RIGHT IN THE SITE OF THE LORD.

INTERPRETATION: ECCLESIASTES 10:2 (NKJV) A WISE MAN’S HEART IS AT HIS RIGHT HAND, BUT A FOOL’S HEART AT HIS LEFT. THE BOOK (ECCLESIASTES 10:2) THE HEARTS OF THE WISE LEAD THEM TO DO RIGHT, AND THE HEARTS OF THE FOOLISH LEAD THEM TO DO EVIL.

YOU COULD ASSOCIATE THE HEART AS FEELING, THE HEAD WITH THOUGHT PROCESSES AND THE HAND WITH ACTION. STATED ANOTHER WAY, MOTIVE IS IN THE HEART, THE GUIDING PRINCIPLE IS THE HEAD AND DELIVERY IN THE HAND.

ANCIENT BELIEFS REGARDED THE RIGHT HAND AS A PLACE OF HONOR: THE LEFT HAND SUGGESTED THE EXACT OPPOSITE.

MANS’ THEORY OF A TRUE CHRISTIAN WALK MAY WELL BE OUT OF ORDER AND DYSFUNCTIONAL IF IT DOES NOT RELATE TO THE SCRIPTURES. HE IS “LEFT HANDED” SPIRITUALLY! THIS IS THE CARNAL CHRISTIANS MINDSET, UNFORTUNATELY, MANY BELIEVERS FUNCTION “LEFT HANDED”.

STATED ANOTHER WAY, ONE OLD SAGE STATES (THERE IS A CORRECT WAY AND AN INCORRECT WAY).

ECCLESIASTES 10:3 (NKJV) EVEN WHEN A FOOL WALKS ALONG THE WAY, HE LACKS WISDOM, AND HE SHOWS EVERYONE THAT HE IS A FOOL.

APPLICATION: WHEN A MAN’S HEART IS IN HIS RIGHT HAND, HIS GIFTS AND MINISTRY WILL FLOURISH FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD. RESULTS WILL COME IF HE IS NOT WEARY IN WELL DOING. A WISE MAN’S HEART WILL BECOME STRONG IN THE LORD: FRUIT WILL BECOME APPARENT.
