Day 13 has been a great day, not only because I get to read the Proverbs, but… because my mom, aunt, and friend went with me to Bible Study downtown and then we all went to the Air Show afterwards! Great times. 🙂
Proverbs 13:2-5, 8, 10-11, 21, 24-25
From the fruit of his lips a man enjoys good things, but the unfaithful have a craving for violence. He who guards his lips guards his life, but he who speaks rashly will come to ruin. The sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied. The righteous hate what is false, but the wicked bring shame and disgrace. A man’s riches may ransom his life, but a poor man hears no threat. Pride only breeds quarrels, but wisdom is found in those who take advice. Dishonest money dwindles away, but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow. Misfortune pursues the sinner, but prosperity is the reward of the righteous. He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him. The righteous eat to their hearts’ content, but the stomach of the wicked goes hungry.
