Proverbs

29 Jun
"A man’s own folly ruins his life,
yet his heart rages against the LORD."
"Better to be lowly in spirit and among the oppressed
than to share plunder with the proud."
"All a man’s ways seem innocent to him,
but motives are weighed by the LORD."
"Many are the plans in a man’s heart,
but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails."
"Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge,
but he who hates correction is stupid."
"A kind-hearted woman gains respect,
but ruthless men gain only wealth."
"There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan
that can succeed against the LORD." (!!!)
"Wounds from a friend can be trusted,
but an enemy multiplies kisses."
"If a man loudly blesses his neighbour early in the morning,
it will be taken as a curse." (sorry couldn’t resist)
"When pride comes, then comes disgrace,
but with humility comes wisdom."
"Better is open rebuke
than hidden love."
And my current fave:
"A man of many companions may come to ruin,
bu there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother."
