Made it to day 11 of the Proverbs Challenge. I’m going all the way!!! 🙂
Proverbs 11:2-3, 7-8, 15, 17-21, 24-25, 31
When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom. The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity. When a wicked man dies, his hope perishes; all he expected from his power comes to nothing. The righteous man is rescued from trouble, but through knowledge the righteous escape. He who puts up security for another will surely suffer, but whoever refuses to strike hands in pledge is safe. A kind man benefits himself, but a cruel man brings trouble on himself. The wicked man earns deceptive wages, but he who sows righteousness reaps a sure reward. The truly righteous man attains life, but he who pursues evil goes to his death. The Lord detests men of perverse heart but he delights in those whose ways are blameless. Be sure of this: The wicked will not go unpunished, but those who are righteous will go free. One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed. If the righteous receive their due on earth, how much more the ungodly and the sinner!
