Positive Confessions with Wisdom: Proverbs 17

 imagesBetter to be a fool for God rather than be a fool who presumes that God cannot see into a heart of a fool ….

Proverbs 17:1-28

1. Better to gnaw on a bit of dry crust in peace than to feast in a house full of stress.
A wise servant will be put in charge of a child who behaves badly and will take a share of the inheritance like one of the family.
Silver is purified in the crucible, gold in the furnace, but motives of the heart are judged by the Eternal.
4 …
Anyone who makes fun of the poor disparages his Maker, and those who celebrate another’s misfortune will not escape certain punishment.
Grandchildren are the crowning glory and ultimate delight of old age, and parents are the pride of their children.
7 …
8 …
Those who forgive faults foster love, …
10 A single correction makes a more lasting impression on one who is wise …
11 …
12 …
13 …
14 … 
15 Both of these deeply offend the Eternal: one who acquits the guilty and one who condemns the innocent.
16 …
17 A true friend loves regardless of the situation, and a real brother exists to share the tough times.
18 …
19 …
20 …
21 …
22 A joy-filled heart is curative balm, …
23 …
24 Those who understand look to wisdom for guidance, …
25 …
26 Also know this: It is wrong to penalize those who do what is right or to lash the noble because of their integrity.
27 Those with knowledge know when to be quiet, and those with understanding know how to remain calm.
28 Even a fool who keeps quiet is considered wise, for when he keeps his mouth shut, he appears clever.
