Project 4:4--Day One Hundred Thirty-Eight

Day One Hundred Thirty-Eight, Proverbs

Advice and rebuke

Prov. 27:17

As iron sharpens iron,
so one man sharpens another.


Value of advisers

Prov. 15:22

Plans fail for lack of counsel,
but with many advisers they succeed.


Discipline

Prov. 3:11-12

My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline
And do not resent his rebuke,
Because the Lord disciplines those he loves,
As a father the son he delights in.


Lawkeeping

Prov. 29:18

Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint;
but blessed is he who keeps the law.


Repentance

Prov. 28:13

He who conceals his sins does not prosper,
but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.


Righteousness and wickedness

Prov. 12:2-3

A good man obtains favor from the Lord,
but the Lord condemns a crafty man
A man cannot be established through wickedness,
but the righteous cannot be uprooted.


Integrity and perversion

Prov. 10:9

The man of integrity walks securely,
but he who takes crooked paths will be found out.


Appropriate consequences

Prov. 16:7

When a man’s ways are pleasing to the Lord,
He makes even his enemies live at peace with him.
