Growing up my mother always had these sayings. Things like, "I see said the blind man" or "If the sun still shine and the creek don't rise". And a few others that I cannot mention in this post. Over these past few weeks of self-isolation, social distancing, physical distancing, sheltering in place, or whatever you want to call it; her sayings have been playing in mind as a means of comfort. Often when I need a word of wisdom, I have an internal conversation with her and things seem to improve. More importantly, I turn to writers like King Solomon and others in the book of Proverbs for god-inspired guidance. So today, I thought I would share with you my TOP 10 Proverbs to ponder as you continue to spend time with yourself:
10 - The immature will die because they turn away; smugness will destroy fools. Those who obey me will dwell securely, untroubled by the dread of harm. (Proverbs 1:32 - 33) 9 - The LORD’s eyes watch over every person’s path, observing all their ways. (Proverbs 5:21)
8 - The LORD’s eyes watch over every person’s path, observing all their ways. (Proverbs 18:10) 7 - Laziness brings poverty; hard work makes one rich. A wise son harvests in the summer; a disgraceful son sleeps right through the harvest. (Proverbs 10:4 - 5) 6 - When the righteous become numerous, the people rejoice,
but when the wicked dominate, the people moan. (Proverbs 29:2) 5 - A peaceful mind gives life to the body, but jealousy rots the bones. (Proverbs 14:30) 4 - Know him in all your paths, and he will keep your ways straight. (Proverbs 3:6) 3 - Kind persons benefit themselves, but cruel people harm themselves. (Proverbs 11:17) 2 - The LORD’s eyes watch over every person’s path, observing all their ways. (Proverbs 5:21) 1 - Don’t let loyalty and faithfulness leave you. Bind them on your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will find favor and approval in the eyes of God and humanity. (Proverbs 3:3 - 4) Gain wisdom and Be Blessed.
