Proverbs 13

1 A wise son heareth his father’s instruction: but a scorner heareth not rebuke.

A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence.

He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.

The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.

A righteous man hateth lying: but a wicked man is loathsome, and cometh to shame.

Righteousness keepeth him that is upright in the way: but wickedness overthroweth the sinner.

There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.

The ransom of a man’s life are his riches: but the poor heareth not rebuke.

The light of the righteous rejoiceth: but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out.

10 Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom.

11 Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase.

12 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.

13 Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.

14 The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.

15 Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors is hard.

16 Every prudent man dealeth with knowledge: but a fool layeth open his folly.

17 A wicked messenger falleth into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health.

18 Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured.

19 The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil.

20 He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

21 Evil pursueth sinners: but to the righteous good shall be repayed.

22 A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.

23 Much food is in the tillage of the poor: but there is that is destroyed for want of judgment.

24 He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.

25 The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul: but the belly of the wicked shall want.

  1. Tell me who you hang with and I tell you who you are.

    He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

    Be careful who you allow to speak into your life. Make sure their influence in your life is of life and not death. If you let one weed in your garden & you don’t tend to it soon you will have weeds & no garden. In the same manner death has a way of creeping in your life, don’t take me wrong we can influence this world but only if we allow our Gardener to tend our Garden with His truth by His word; otherwise the world is the one that finish influencing and dragging us into its destruction.

  2. Become wise by walking with the wise; hang out with fools and watch your life fall to pieces. (Proverbs 13:20 MSG)
    So true!! I’ve seen this to often. Whether being an adult or a teenager. By the persons attitude, speech, and actions, You see them turning and going down the wrong path. You try to help and warn them and letting them know that they’re going the wrong way, and let them know that there is only One Way to take in life. But it’s up to them. They need to be able to stop, and discern which Route they will be taking.
    Jesus said ” I Am the Way, the Truth, and The Life”.

  3. This passage speaks several times of becoming wise by listening to Godly counsel and obeying the Word. We find ourselves in trouble too often because we have not followed this advice.

    The Contentious Person

    10 Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom.

    Have you ever met a contentious person? Someone who likes to ague over the smallest detail?

    con·ten·tion (kn-tnshn)
    n.
    1. The act or an instance of striving in controversy or debate. See Synonyms at discord.
    2. A striving to win in competition; rivalry: The teams met in fierce contention for first place.
    3. An assertion put forward in argument.

    If you think you can win an argument with these people…think again.

    The root to the argumentative person is PRIDE.

    Pride blinds a person.
    His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal. One is so near to another, that no air can come between them. (Job 41:15, 16 KJV)

    The best thing you should do around the contentious person is to act dumb. Yeah, they already think you’re dumb anyway, just play the part and thereby have temporary peace.

    Does that sound crazy??? It’s better then arguing with the contentious person because then you become the fool.

    Just humble yourself, wash their feet, play dumb, and let God exalt you!

    That’s wise!

    Arrogant know-it-alls stir up discord, but wise men and women listen to each other’s counsel. (Proverbs 13:10 MSG)

  5. 20 He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

    Show me who your friends are and I’ll show you who you are. Nobody is the exception. We need to take a second to see who we’re hanging around. If they’re not getting us closer to God then what are they doing? …. Or better yet, what are we doing?

  6. 13 Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.

    John 1:1 KJV
    1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    We cannot despise God and prosper; but if we reverence Him and His Word, we will obey His commandments and receive the rewards that follow.

  7. HALELUJAH!!! HALELUJAH!!! HALELUJAH!!!
    20 He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.
    YES JESUS!!! I DON’T ONLY WANT TO WALK WITH YOU DADDY BUT EVERYTHING THAT I DO I WANT TO DO WITH YOU!!! I WANT TO GLORIFY YOU ALWAYS AND IN ALL WAYS!!! HALELUJAH!!! THANK YOU DADDY!!! I LOVE YOU JESUS!!! HALELUJAH!!! The world says : tell me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are …… Dime con Quien andas y te dire Quien eres) …..MY DADDY SAYS THAT I AM HIS FRIEND!!! JESUS IS MY FAITHFUL FRIEND!!! HALELUJAH!!! HALELUJAH!!! HALELUJAH!!! GRACIAS PADRE!!! =D

  8. What are the desires of your heart?

    The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil. (Proverbs 13:19 KJV)

    We actively seek those things that we desire. Our time tells what we desire. If we are seeking things, status, and lusts of the eyes/flesh, are we doing the wrong thing?

    But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matthew 6:33 KJV)

    God, scriptures, people/souls. . .Those are thing we should be actively seeking. Those things are sweet to God and our soul both. The things of this world fade. But if we seek things for God it please Him and is sweet to us. If we spread the word and God draws the people, what sweetness we will have in our soul.

  9. LIVIN THE HARD LIFE

    12 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.
    13 Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.
    14 The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.
    15 Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors is hard.

    12
    Losing HOPE is a painful, sickening experience, HOPE is a synonym of FAITH.

    Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

    1Peter 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

    1Peter 1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

    1Peter 1:21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.

    13
    The KEY to HOPE is FAITH, the KEY to FAITH is the WORD of GOD.
    MSG
    13 Ignore the Word and suffer;
    honor God’s commands and grow rich.

    15
    Self will is the most desired life, but is also the HARDEST life
    NLT
    15 A person with good sense is respected;
    a treacherous person is headed for destruction

    SUMMARY:

    Lose HOPE = Sickness and heartache
    Ignore BIBLE = Suffering
    Transgress (Unfaithful) = Hard, rough way

  10. 13:3 -he that keepeth his mouth, keepeth his life:but he that openeth wide his lips
    Shall have destruction.
    How do our present life look?
    What are we talking about? Are the words coming out of our mouth, are they blessed words or cursed?
    Anyways, sonner or later what we talk about the most will be reflected on our lives.
    I want my soul to prosper, I want the blessings of the LORD.
    —- let the words that come out of my mouth
    And the meditation of my heart be pleasant unto you O LORD.
    RIGHTEOUSNESS is what I want to be dressed with my hole life:to talk right, to think right, to act right, to do right.
    —LORD HAVE MERCY!!!! In Jesus name, I pray.

  11. 19 It is pleasant to see dreams come true,
    but fools refuse to turn from evil to attain them.

    20 Walk with the wise and become wise;
    associate with fools and get in trouble.

    21 Trouble chases sinners,
    while blessings reward the righteous.

  12. Destroyed by wrong path~and with no commandments to follow:

    1 John 5:1-4

    1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
    2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
    3 For this is lovet of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
    4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

  13. Jesus loves us so much lets try to obey Him.
    Thank you Jesus! I love you Jesus you are always on my mind to please you dear Jesus.
    You are my deliverer and Savior!

  14. The secrets to success are in our Owners Manual

    Be careful to know who your hangin with

    20 He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

    1 Thessalonians 5
    12 And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;

    Work hard and it will pay off!

    4 The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.

    God gave us a great example, even he worked, so should we.

    Genesis 2
    2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

    Exodus 20
    9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

    Listen to your Pastor

    1 A wise son heareth his father’s instruction: but a scorner heareth not rebuke.

    18 Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured.

    Proverbs 1
    7 The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of knowledge: [but] fools despise wisdom and instruction.

    This bible is a fool proof way to success. If we dive in and make it our Owners Manual. The secrets to life await.

  15. Verse 13 AMP “Whoever despises the word and counsel [of God] brings destruction upon himself, but he who [reverently] fears and respects the commandment [of God] is rewarded.”

    Same verse NLT “People who despise advice are asking for trouble; those who respect a command will succeed.” Why ask for trouble, when you can succeed in Jesus!

  16. This chapter illustrates decisions. There are choices and the outcome of one’s decision provided. One will have to make many decisions in life, one that chooses God (Jesus) will truly live; “Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded”. What a mighty God we serve! May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  17. Guard your mouth

    Careful words make for a careful life; careless talk may ruin everything. (Proverbs 13:3 MSG)

    We’ve heard time and time again that in our words have power of death and life. If we are spirit-filled we have that same spirit that spoke this world into existence. If we start giving everyone a piece of our minds or just telling it like it is, it’s as if you given a toddler a machine gun. And the damage will be great.

    “You have minds like a snake pit! How do you suppose what you say is worth anything when you are so foul-minded? It’s your heart, not the dictionary, that gives meaning to your words. A good person produces good deeds and words season after season. An evil person is a blight on the orchard. Let me tell you something: Every one of these careless words is going to come back to haunt you. There will be a time of Reckoning. Words are powerful; take them seriously. Words can be your salvation. Words can also be your damnation.” (Matthew 12:34-37 MSG)

  18. Wow…this scripture definately defines both areas of righteousness or wickedness.

    So, let us practice verse 1, and I hope to do verse 3…he that keepeth his mouth, keepeth his life. You know if we are doing all the talking how can we hear him. He is a Gentleman……

  19. Vs. 3, “He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.”

    Prov. 21:23, “Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue; keepeth his soul from troubles.”

    1 Peter 3:10, “For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile (crafty or deceitful talk.)

    Sometimes,it’s just best to keep our mouths shut. Sometimes, it’s just best to be silent, because our mouth can get us into alot of trouble.

    My prayer is Ps.141:3, “Set, a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.”

  20. 18 Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured.

    Did momma whip/beat us because she liked it? Were we punished as children because our those who were over us enjoyed our displeasure and pain? In most cases, no. Correction is executed with love. I have found myself, when correcting my children claim” I am not allowing you to do this thing because I don’t love you and don’t care about your safety… It brings me joy to see you in pain”. Statements such as these generally ease the discomfort of my children in not getting their way or taking part in some activity “everyone else is doing”.

    If we keep in mind when hearing the Word of God; those things that prick our soul, are for our betterment and/or protection. I do not believe the Lord receives pleasure in our calamity, pain and broken hearts. However, we have the choice to refuse correction. Our children have the choice whether to behave and obey or suffer the consequences. When they reach a certain age they have the choice where they call home. My house comes with certain rules and guidelines. If my children choose not to obey those rules, they are also choosing to suffer the consequences of their actions.

    Are we regarding reproof? Or, are we refusing love?

  21. Are You On Track or in a Ditch?

    MSG
    6 A God-loyal life keeps you on track;
    sin dumps the wicked in the ditch.

    Psalm 119:1
    Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.

    Ezekiel 11:20
    That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.

    If we take out the time to evaluate our lives do we feel that we are on track with God? Being on track with Him does not always mean every duck is in a row but are we making a conscious decision to do all we can to follow His Word and live according to Him commandments? There will always be new things we can learn form His Word but in experiencing new revelations of the Word of God we need not to let go of the foundational principles we were birth into. As we continue to walk in His way and add to our faith we become His people, and He truly becomes our God. The moment we step away from His commandments we have fallen into the ditch a.k.a Hell of “sin.”
    Isaiah 5:14 says “Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.”
    I personally am not in the business of remodeling Hell. My desire is to make heaven so crowded that I knock people over when I get my dance on and bust my neighbors eardrum with my praise. We wont have time to sit down so we might as well bring as many people as we can.

  22. 10 Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom.

    Contention
    noun
    1. a struggling together in opposition; strife.
    2. a striving in rivalry; competition; contest.
    3. strife in debate; dispute; controversy.

    If we can’t be told what to do, if we continuously argue our point, if we try competing to be better then our Brother or Sister then we should really examine our heart.
    Proverbs 11:2 When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom. Esv
    Proverbs 16:18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. Kjv
    Proverbs 29:23 Pride ends in humiliation, while humility brings honor. Nlt

    All these things pride brings, contention, disgrace, destruction, humiliation. God isn’t very fond of a proud heat, let’s stay humble and keep our heart’s right before him. If we humble ourselfs he will exalt us, we don’t have to worry about making outsells look good.. All glory goes to him anyways 🙂 let’s not be to proud to ask for help or council, that is where true wisdom is. Thank you Jesus

  23. Proverbs 13:3 Keepeth his mouth keepeth his life. The ability to control the tongue is one of the clearest marks of wisdom . ” Death and life are in the power of the tongue” he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.

    Proverbs 13:24 spareth his rod hateth his son. Parents are encouraged to apply the rod of punishment to drive out folly so that the child will not follow a path of destruction. “The rod and reproof give wisdom” and promote a healthy and happy family. Discipline is rooted in love . rod. A figure of speech for loving and corrective discipline of any kind.

    Praise God!!

  24. Verbal CPR

    2 A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence.

    3 He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.

    4 The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.

    We know we must speak blessing and not cursing, but do we realize the importance of *when* we speak it?

    Ecclesiastes 9:11-12
    11 I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. 12 For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them.

    There are opportunities of blessing we miss because we don’t speak blessing *fast enough.* If a person passed out in front of you and had no pulse, would you sit around for a couple days before doing something? God forbid! No, you start CPR right away as best as you know how! There are some situations that wisdom says need immediate verbal CPR: speak life NOW if it’s needed!

    Hebrews 11:1
    Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

    Our faith must be NOW, ready at all times, and we must be diligent to be able to respond in time when a NOW moment suddenly appears. Don’t “wait for church”! Don’t “wait for prayer meeting”! NOW is the time to take authority and speak life! Call for the spiritual EMS if it’s needed but don’t refuse to act just because “you’re not as trained.” You have 66 books to choose from, find *something* from the Word to start speaking life NOW!

    Do you want to see your promise dead because you refused to engage your faith when the opportunity was there to do something about it?!

    2 Kings 4:17-23
    17 And the woman conceived, and bare a son at that season that Elisha had said unto her, according to the time of life. 18 And when the child was grown, it fell on a day, that he went out to his father to the reapers. 19 And he said unto his father, My head, my head. And he said to a lad, Carry him to his mother. 20 And when he had taken him, and brought him to his mother, he sat on her knees till noon, and then died. 21 And she went up, and laid him on the bed of the man of God, and shut the door upon him, and went out. 22 And she called unto her husband, and said, Send me, I pray thee, one of the young men, and one of the asses, that I may run to the man of God, and come again. 23 And he said, Wherefore wilt thou go to him to day? it is neither new moon, nor sabbath. And she said, It shall be well.

    NOW faith said “it shall be well!” before momma even got to leave to get the EMS! She started verbal CPR and kept it going:

    2 Kings 4:25-26
    25 So she went and came unto the man of God to mount Carmel. And it came to pass, when the man of God saw her afar off, that he said to Gehazi his servant, Behold, yonder is that Shunammite: 26 Run now, I pray thee, to meet her, and say unto her, Is it well with thee? is it well with thy husband? is it well with the child? And she answered, It is well.

    We know the story, her son was raised back up, but what if she had forgone verbal CPR? Even if he still was saved, why take the risk?!

    “The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing…”

    Laziness can be the ultimate promise killer. There are Good Samaritan laws that in some places actually make it a crime to purposefully refuse to give another help when they are in serious need (example: trapped in a wrecked car, in need of CPR, etc.) How can we blame circumstances for killing a promise if we refuse to give CPR?! If a government would imprison someone for such negligence, how might God feel on the subject?

    We can’t be filled with excuses and laziness when we have a NOW opportunity before us, we must take authority and use verbal CPR to speak life! It’s not about acting rashly but exercising wisdom and discerning opportunity to step out on faith. God watches our stewardship; we can’t let fear make us bad stewards over opportunities that call for an immediate response.

    Deliver those who are drawn away to death, and those who totter to the slaughter, hold them back [from their doom]. If you [profess ignorance and] say, Behold, we did not know this, does not He Who weighs and ponders the heart perceive and consider it? And He Who guards your life, does not He know it? And shall not He render to [you and] every man according to his works? (Proverbs 24:11, 12 AMP)

  25. 3 Those who control their tongue will have a long life; opening your mouth can ruin everything. (NLT)

  26. 13-24
    If you reaaly love your children you dont overlook there faults but take steps to correct them. The phrase SPARE TTHE ROD does not mandate spanking as a form of punshiment although corporal punishment was certainly practiced in biblical times.

  27. Be careful what you speak.

    2 A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence.

    What are you talking about? Is is good or bad? Is it building someone up or destroying them? These are just a few questions that arise when anyone talks. I pray that we all will take account for our words, before we say them.

  28. The dangers of an open mouth

    3 He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.

    The first word keepeth means to guard, and protect. The second keepeth means to save, and preserve.

    Guarding what comes out of your mouth preserves your life. Not mortality but rather unnecessary drama. It also helps to protect those around you.

    As children of God we are privy to some pretty sensitive information at times. Maybe God has revealed things about people in prayer. It is never intended to spread but focus prayer on. We can intercede when people are facing challenging times. Gossip hurts the tale bearer, the victim, and those who hear it.

    Instead we are to build one another up!

    1 Peter 3:8
    Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:

    1 Thessalonians 5:11
    11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.

    Ephesians 4:32
    And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

  29. 6 Righteousness keepeth him that is upright in the way: but wickedness overthroweth the sinner.

    Of all the wisdom in this chapter this verse sums it all up. Righteousness encompasses a lot of actions & attitudes but the other verses here plus the rest of his word guides us on this path.

  30. Power of Speech

    vs3 Those who guard their lips preserve their lives, but those who speak rashly will come to ruin.

    Scripture makes countless refrences to the power people’s words have to either bring blessing or pain to others as well as to themselves. What comes out of people’s mouths can heal and give life when they are guided by wisdom; but when people speak without thinking, they can do enormous harm (vs 18). In James 3:3-6, we find a description of the life-altering destructiveness of a tounge left unchecked. Many proverbs remind us of the widom of keeping our mouths shut (Pr 10:19; 11:12; 21:23). When we speak rashly we will almost always regret it and we may even destroy our own credibility. The tounge literally has the “power of life and death.” (Pr 18:21).

  31. 11 Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase.

    It is easy to see who works for their money, and cares for their belongings, and who doesn’t. When we work har for something, generally we don’t just trash it, or allow some other person to trash it. When a person doesn’t use their skills that they have been blessed with, but rather use their looks, their charm, or their deciet.. Well as momma said, “your looks only get you so far”…

  32. 20 Become wise by walking with the wise;
    hang out with fools and watch your life fall to pieces.

    They say birds of a feather flock together . Check who you are hanging with, and perhaps you will find that your choices may have a lot to do with decisions you make, and the direction your life is going. The best thing we can do for ourselves and our families, is learn, adapt and teach the principles in the word, so that we would become wise as serpants, harmless as doves.

  33. Who are you spending your time with?

    20 He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

    I’ve oft heard the saying “don’t judge me by the company I keep” but the truth is people become what they entertain or surround themselves with. We also tend to spend time with like minded people, the more time we spend with them the more we begin to think alike. What we want people to see in us as Christians is Christ but if we only run around with those of opposing lifestyles then we are not going to be the influencer. Instead we need to surround ourselves with people who emulate the attributes we want in our lives.

    When we become new in Christ we must let go of the old, surround ourselves with good and forsake the evil.

    1 Corinthians 15:33 (AMP)
    Do not be so deceived and misled! Evil companionships (communion, associations) corrupt and deprave good manners and morals and character.

  34. Not only should we be concerned with the paths we take in this life but we should also know those who walk with us.

    20 He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

  35. 3 Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.

    20 He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

    There will be those that will build you up and lead you closer to God by being a good example and keeping the commandments of the Lord, and there will be those that out of their rebellion and wrong choices will steer you away from a path of righteousness. Let’s be wise and walk with those that edify. How can you tell, or how do you know? Listen to what they talk about. Out of the abundance of the heart speaks the mouth. Get close to those that speak faith/the word now.

  36. Lord I will examine myself today, deliver me from what displeases you. I want to be please you in every way, give me the strenght, courage and understanding to see what you want me to see. I seek you Lord. Guide me NOW.

  37. Who stands next to you?

    20 He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

    The saying is so true “you are who you hang out with”
    People don’t realize the effects that others have on those they spend their time with.. If you hang around someone who gossips and dwells on life then chances are you will soon pick up that same spirit and mentality but if you hangout with a hard worker who loves life you will grow to be that… The question is “who is standing next to you?” Evaluate your life- friends, goals, attitude, etc.

    Maybe it’s time to make a change. Not everyone is meant to stay in your life, sometimes they just pass through. You have to be strong enough to let go of hat you don’t need… You are who you hang out with
