Wisdom from Proverbs

I’ve been reading Proverbs over the last couple of weeks.  I am increasingly amazed at how relevant many of these statements are:

  • The wise will inherit honor, but fools get disgrace – 3:35
  • Whoever corrects a scoffer gets himself abuse, and he who reproves a wicked man incurs injury.  Do not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you; reprove a wise man, and he will love you.  Give instruction to a wise man and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning. – 9:7-9
  • Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring a man wealth – 10:4
  • The integrity of the honest keeps them on track; the deviousness of crooks brings them to ruin – 11:3
  • Without good direction, people lose their way; the more wise counsel you follow, the better your chances – 11:14
