It’s day 29 of the Proverbs Challenge!


Proverbs 29:3-4, 7, 10-11, 13, 17, 19, 22, 25-26

A man who loves wisdom brings joy to his father, but a companion of prostitutes squanders his wealth.  By justice a king gives a country stability, but one who is greedy for bribes tears it down.  The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern.  Bloodthirsty men hate a man of integrity and seek to kill the upright.  A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control.  The poor man and the oppressor have this in common:  The Lord gives sight to the eyes of both.  Discipline your son, and he will give you peace; he will bring delight to your soul.  A servant cannot be corrected by mere words; though he understands, he will not respond.  An angry man stirs up dissension, and a hot-tempered one commits many sins.  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 man gets justice.
