Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.
What a person desires is unfailing love; better to be poor than a liar.
The fear of the LORD leads to life; then one rests content, untouched by trouble.
A sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he will not even bring it back to his mouth!
Flog a mocker, and the simple will learn prudence; rebuke the discerning, and they will gain knowledge.
Whoever robs their father and drives out their mother is a child who brings shame and disgrace.
Stop listening to instruction, my son, and you will stray from the words of knowledge.
A corrupt witness mocks at justice, and the mouth of the wicked gulps down evil.
Penalties are prepared for mockers, and beatings for the backs of fools.
Proverbs 19:20-29 (NIV)
Pray: Father, may we take time to seek your will. Help us to accept your leading even when our plans must take second place. Amen
