Proverbs 22: 1 A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold

Proverbs 23:13-14

14 Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell.

Proverbs 24: 9-10

The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men.

10 If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.

Proverbs 25:6-7

6 Put not forth thyself in the presence of the king, and stand not in the place of great men:

For better it is that it be said unto thee, Come up hither; than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thine eyes have seen.

Proverbs 26:4-6

4 Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.

Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit.

He that sendeth a message by the hand of a fool cutteth off the feet, and drinketh damage.

Proverbs 27:1 Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.

Proverbs 28:6, 13 6 Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich. 13 He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

Proverbs 29: 5-6

5 A man that flattereth his neighbour spreadeth a net for his feet.

In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice.

Proverbs 30: 5, 11-14 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

11-14 There is a generation that curseth their father, and doth not bless their mother.

12 There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.

13 There is a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up.

14 There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men.

Proverbs 31: 10-12

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

Debra’s take on this section — Leave fools be!

Overall — Reading the bible is a good habit for me! Everytime I push myself to start and finish one of these challenges, I discover more about God and myself! 🙂

Do you find the same to be true for you?
