Servants cannot be corrected by mere words; though they understand, they will not respond.
Do you see someone who speaks in haste? There is more hope for a fool than for them.
A servant pampered from youth will turn out to be insolent.
An angry person stirs up conflict, and a hot-tempered person commits many sins.
Pride brings a person low, but the lowly in spirit gain honour.
The accomplices of thieves are their own enemies; they are put under oath and dare not testify.
Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe.
Many seek an audience with a ruler, but it is from the LORD that one gets justice.
The righteous detest the dishonest; the wicked detest the upright.
Proverbs 29:18-27 (NIV)
Pray: Father, protect us from fearing what man can do to us. Give us courage in the face of adversity and opposition. Amen
