Rich and poor have this in common: The Lord is the Maker of them all.
The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty.
Humility is the fear of the Lord; its wages are riches and honour and life.
In the paths of the wicked are snares and pitfalls, but those who would preserve their life stay far from them.
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is slave to the lender.
Whoever sows injustice reaps calamity, and the rod they wield in fury will be broken.
The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.
Drive out the mocker, and out goes strife; quarrels and insults are ended.
One who loves a pure heart and who speaks with grace will have the king for a friend.
Proverbs 22:1-11 (NIV)
Pray: Father, we pray for Christian parents, that they would speak openly and honestly about their faith and that in time their children would come to know you for themselves. We also pray for parents whose children have wandered away from faith; may your Holy Spirit prompt then and draw them to you. Amen
