As we're reading through the book of Proverbs this month, I thought I'd share a few of my favourites (all from the New Living Translation):
Prov 3:5-6. Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
Prov 4:23. Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.
Prov 10:9. People with integrity walk safely, but those who follow crooked paths will slip and fall.
Prov 13:4. Lazy people want much but get little, but those who work hard will prosper.
Prov 13:10. Pride leads to conflict; those who take advice are wise.
Prov 13:18. If you ignore criticism, you will end in poverty and disgrace; if you accept correction, you will be honored.
Prov 15:1. A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare.
Prov 15:22. Plans go wrong for lack of advice; many advisers bring success.
Prov 15:28. The heart of the godly thinks carefully before speaking; the mouth of the wicked overflows with evil words.
Prov 15:31. If you listen to constructive criticism, you will be at home among the wise.
