Proverbs challenge update

July 28th, 2011

As I said earlier in the month my wife and I are reading one chapter of Proverbs a day this month. Today’s reading was from chapter 28.

As I read a few verses really jumped out at me.

Verse 7 – Young people who obey the law are wise; those with wild friends bring shame to their parents.

Verse 19 – A hard worker has plenty of food, but a person who chases fantasies ends up in poverty.

Verse 23 – In the end, people appreciate honest criticism far more than flattery.

Verse 27 – Whoever gives to the poor will lack nothing, but those who close their eyes to poverty will be cursed.

They are a few simple verses that gave me something to ponder today as I go about my work.

Proverbs 28 in the New Living Translation was probably my favourite so far of the readings.

God Bless,
