Proverbs 22:1-2, 4, 6-7, 9, 16, 22-25, 28-29

A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.  Rich and poor have this in common:  The Lord is the Maker of them all.  Humility and the fear of the Lord bring wealth and honor and life.  Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.  The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.  A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor.  He who oppresses the poor to increase his wealth and he who gives gifts to the rich – both come to poverty.  Do not exploit the poor because they are poor and do not crush the needy in court, for the Lord will take up their case and will plunder those who plunder them.  Do not make friends with a hot-tempered man, do not associate with one easily angered, or you may learn his ways and get yourself ensnared.  Do not move an ancient boundary stone set up by your forefathers.  Do you see a man skilled in his work?  He will serve before kings; he will not serve before obscure men.
