Sunday Words- Proverbs 14:30

Proverbs 14 and a quote from John Ortberg#JohnOrtberg #Lightstock#CommonEnglishBible

two women sitting on a rug with open books
A wise woman builds her house,
while a foolish woman tears hers down with her own hands.
Pride sprouts in the mouth of a fool,
but the lips of the wise protect them.
8 By their wisdom the prudent understand their way,
but the stupidity of fools deceives them.
14 Rebellious hearts receive satisfaction from their ways;
the good receive the due reward for their deeds.
15 The naive believe anything,
but the prudent give thought to their steps.
16 The wise are careful and avoid evil,
but fools become excited and overconfident.
21 Those who despise their neighbors are sinners,
but happy are those who are kind to the needy.
29 Patience leads to abundant understanding,
but impatience leads to stupid mistakes.
30 A peaceful mind gives life to the body,
but jealousy rots the bones.
