Fools show their annoyance at once,
but the prudent overlook an insult.
An honest witness tells the truth,
but a false witness tells lies.
The words of the reckless pierce like swords,
but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
Truthful lips endure forever,
but a lying tongue lasts only a moment.
Deceit is in the hearts of those who plot evil,
but those who promote peace have joy.
No harm overtakes the righteous,
but the wicked have their fill of trouble.
The Lord detests lying lips,
but he delights in people who are trustworthy.
A fool shows their annoyance immediately but an honest prudent person overlooks insults. So much is said in these verses about our tongue and words and truth or lies. Do we plot evil or promote peace? The Lord delights in people who are trustworthy. Can you be trusted? How do you speak to others? Be wise speak truth, peace, love, promote joy! #PromoteJoy
The generous soul will be made rich,
And he who waters will also be watered himself.
The people will curse him who withholds grain,
But blessing will be on the head of him who sells it.
He who earnestly seeks good finds favor,
But trouble will come to him who seeks evil.
He who trusts in his riches will fall,
But the righteous will flourish like foliage.
He who troubles his own house will inherit the wind,
And the fool will be servant to the wise of heart.
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life,
And he who wins souls is wise.
Is your soul generous? Do you earnstly seek good? Do you trust in your own riches? If your soul is generous, if you seek good and not evil, if you trust in the Lord and His riches you will attain the tree of life! Because you have sought the Lord and His righteousness with your whole being. Pride causes shame but the humble is wisdom. #TreeofLife
Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, 45 and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need.
46 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.
Happy and kind people are contageous! Do you fellowship with others to accomplish God's purpose in your life, in the lives of others, and in the world? We can share of love of Christ everywhere we go! Try true love today! #ValentinesDay
The mouth of the righteous is a well of life,
But violence covers the mouth of the wicked.
Hatred stirs up strife,
But love covers all sins.
Wisdom is found on the lips of him who has understanding,
But a rod is for the back of him who is devoid of understanding.
Wise people store up knowledge,
But the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.
The rich man’s wealth is his strong city;
The destruction of the poor is their poverty.
How we use our mouth determines how the Lord rewards us. If we choose to be righteous, (In right standing with the Lord) our mouth is a well of "life". Love covers ALL sin wisdom is found on our lips. We become wise and store up knowledge. Choose this day how you will use your words, for life or death! For knowledge and wisdom! Or for destruction, poverty and death. #Wisdom #Knowledge #RighteousLife
8 Do not correct a scoffer, lest he hate you;
Rebuke a wise man, and he will love you.
9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser;
Teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
11 For by me your days will be multiplied,
And years of life will be added to you.
Fear of the Lord is just the beginning of wisdom. Then the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. This will multiply your days and years of your life. We need to come to the Lord daily, in His Word, through prayer, and fellowship with other believers in Christ. The Lord is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End! #Wisdom #knowledge #Understanding #LongLife
