Proverbs has such practical sayings.
I love reading them and letting the wisdom and advice sink in.
Just a few excerpts.......
Ill-gotten gain has no lasting value,
Right living can save your life.
Hatred stirs up quarrels,
Love covers all offenses.
People who wink at wrong cause trouble,
a bold reproof promotes peace.
Trust in your money and down you go!
The godly flourish like leaves in spring.
The wise are glad to be instructed,
Babbling fools fall flat on their faces.
People who accept correction are on the pathway to life,
Those who ignore it will lead others astray.
The godly give good advice,
Fools are destroyed by their lack of common sense.
Your own soul is nourished when you are kind,
You destroy yourself when you are cruel.
Everyone admires a person with good sense,
A warped mind is despised.
Good people leave an inheritance to their grandchildren,
The sinner’s wealth passes to the godly.
Godliness exalts a nation,
Sin is a disgrace to any people.
We can make our plans,
The Lord determines our steps.
