More than half way through the Proverbs Challenge! Can’t believe how fast it’s going.
Lots of knowledge and wisdom to soak up. 🙂
Enjoy day 16 of the Proverbs Challenge!
Proverbs 16:2-4, 7, 9, 13, 16, 19-20, 23-24, 28, 31-33
All a man’s ways seem innocent to him, but motives are weighed by the Lord. Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. The Lord works out everything for his own ends – even the wicked for a day of disaster. When a man’s ways are pleasing to the Lord, he makes even his enemies live at peace with him. In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps. Kings take pleasure in honest lips; they value a man who speaks the truth. How much better to get wisdom than gold, to choose understanding rather than silver! Better to be lowly in spirit and among the oppressed than to share plunder with the proud. Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord. A wise man’s heart guides his mouth, and his lips promote instruction. Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. A perverse man stirs up dissension, and a gossip separates close friends. Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained by a righteous life. Better a patient man than a warrior, a man who controls his temper than one who takes a city. The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord.
