09/16/2014 Scripture


Evil people are trapped by sin,
    but the righteous escape, shouting for joy.

The godly care about the rights of the poor;
    the wicked don’t care at all.

The bloodthirsty hate blameless people,
    but the upright seek to help them.

Fools vent their anger,
    but the wise quietly hold it back.

To discipline a child produces wisdom,
    but a mother is disgraced by an undisciplined child.

When the wicked are in authority, sin flourishes,
    but the godly will live to see their downfall.

Discipline your children, and they will give you peace of mind
    and will make your heart glad.

When people do not accept divine guidance, they run wild.
    But whoever obeys the law is joyful.

-Proverbs 29:6-7, 10-11, & 15-18 NLT
