09/26/2014 Scripture

purple

Better to be poor and honest
    than to be dishonest and a fool.

 Enthusiasm without knowledge is no good;
    haste makes mistakes.

 People ruin their lives by their own foolishness
    and then are angry at the Lord.

 Wealth makes many “friends”;
    poverty drives them all away.

 A false witness will not go unpunished,
    nor will a liar escape.

Many seek favors from a ruler;
    everyone is the friend of a person who gives gifts!

The relatives of the poor despise them;
    how much more will their friends avoid them!
Though the poor plead with them,
    their friends are gone.

To acquire wisdom is to love yourself;
    people who cherish understanding will prosper.

-Proverbs 19:1-8 NLT
