Repentance in Proverbs 1

March 21, 2014 Leave a comment

How long will you who are simple love your simple ways?
How long will mockers delight in mockery
and fools hate knowledge?
Repent at my rebuke!
Then I will pour out my thoughts to you,
I will make known to you my teachings (vv. 22-23).

Four Tongue Proverbs

January 22, 2014 Leave a comment
  1. Proverbs 6:17
    Eyes that look down on others, a tongue that can’t be trusted, hands that shed innocent blood,

  2. Proverbs 10:31
    Wisdom flows from the mouths of those who do right, but tongues that twist the truth will be cut out.

  3. Proverbs 25:15
    Patience can soften up a leader, and a tender tongue can break even bone.

  4. Proverbs 25:23
    Acts of kindness, especially when we know they are undeserved, awaken a slumbering conscience, stimulate sorrow, and perhaps even effect a change. They are the best ways to turn an enemy into a friend. As surely as a north wind drives the rain before it, a backbiting tongue brings angry looks.

So listen!
