Wisdom Is Better Than Gold- Sue Motivates

To humans belong the plans of the
heart, but from the LORD comes the
proper answer of the tongue.
All a person’s ways seem pure to
them,but motives are weighed by the

Commit to the LORD whatever you
do,and he will establish your plans.
The LORD works out everything to
its proper end—even the wicked for a day of disaster.
The LORD detests all the proud of
heart.Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished.

Through love and faithfulness sin is
atoned for;through the fear of the LORD evil is avoided.
When the LORD takes pleasure in
anyone’s way,he causes their enemies to make peace with them.
Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice.
In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps.

The lips of a king speak as an oracle,and his mouth does not betray justice.
Honest scales and balances belong
to the LORD ;all the weights in the bag are of his making.
Kings detest wrongdoing,for a throne is established through righteousness.
Kings take pleasure in honest lips ; they value the one who speaks what is right.

A king’s wrath is a messenger of death,but the wise will appease it.
When a king’s face brightens, it means life; his favor is like a rain cloud in spring.
How much better to get wisdom
than gold,to get insight rather than silver!
The highway of the upright avoids
evil;those who guard their ways preserve their lives.
Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.
Better to be lowly in spirit along with the oppressed than to share plunder with the proud.

Whoever gives heed to instruction
prospers,and blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD .
The wise in heart are called discerning, and gracious words promote instruction.
Prudence is a fountain of life to the
prudent, but folly brings punishment to fools.
The hearts of the wise make their
mouths prudent, and their lips promote instruction.

Gracious words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
There is a way that appears to be
right,but in the end it leads to death.
The appetite of laborers works for
them; their hunger drives them on.
A scoundrel plots evil, and on their lips it is like a scorching fire.
A perverse person stirs up conflict,
and a gossip separates close friends.
A violent person entices their
neighbor and leads them down a path that is not good.

Whoever winks with their eye is
plotting perversity; whoever purses their lips is bent on evil.
Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained in the way of righteousness.
Better a patient person than a warrior,one with self-control than one who takes a city.
The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the

Culled from The Book Of Proverb(chapter 16)

Love Always
