Sunday’s Word — 10Jun12

A good name is more desirable than great riches;
to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.

 Rich and poor have this in common:
The Lord is the Maker of them all.

 A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge,
but the simple keep going and suffer for it.

 Humility and the fear of the Lord
bring wealth and honor and life.

Proverbs 22:1-4


Sunday’s Word – 26Feb12

A path for you


Hear,  my son, and accept my words,  that  the years of your life may be many. I have  taught you the way of wisdom;  I have led you in the paths of uprightness.When you walk,  your step will not be hampered, and  if you run, you will not stumble.   Keep hold of instruction; do not let go; guard her, for she is your  life.  Do not enter the path of the wicked, and do not walk in the way of the evil. Avoid it; do not go on it;  turn away from it and pass on. For they  cannot sleep unless they have done wrong; they are robbed of sleep unless they have made someone stumble.  For they eat the bread of  wickedness and drink the wine of violence.  But  the path of the righteous is like  the light of dawn, which shines  brighter and brighter until  full day.   The way of the wicked is like deep  darkness; they do not know over what they  stumble. 

Proverbs 4:10-19
