Ok, these are the Proverbs that didn’t make the cut for today’s message. They are awesome in their own right. But since the good folks at Maranatha did not want to stay all day, I had to do some elimination.
Take a look and see what you think…
10:32 The lips of the godly speak helpful words, but the mouth of the wicked speaks perverse words.
11:1 The LORD detests the use of dishonest scales, but he delights in accurate weights.
11:17 Your kindness will reward you, but your cruelty will destroy you.
12:3 Wickedness never brings stability, but the godly have deep roots.
12:10 The godly care for their animals, but the wicked are always cruel.
12:18 Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise bring healing.
12:19 Truthful words stand the test of time, but lies are soon exposed.
12:24 Work hard and become a leader; be lazy and become a slave.
12:25 Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up.
13:24 Those who spare the rod of discipline hate their children. Those who love their children care enough to discipline them.
14:4 Without oxen a stable stays clean, but you need a strong ox for a large harvest.
14:15 Only simpletons believe everything they’re told! The prudent carefully consider their steps.
14:30 A peaceful heart leads to a healthy body; jealousy is like cancer in the bones.
