Proverbs 14

I love reading Proverbs each day.  Today being the 14th means I read Proverbs 14.  Here are a couple highlights from my reading today:

  • "Those who follow the right path fear the Lord; those who take the wrong path despise him" 14:2
  • "A fool’s proud talk becomes a rod that beats him, but the words of the wise keep them safe" 14:3
  • "An honest witness does not lie" 14:5
  • "Stay away from fools, for you won’t find knowledge on their lips" 14:7
  • "Only simpletons believe everything they’re told!  The prudent carefully consider their steps" 14:15
  • "The wise are cautious and avoid danger; fools plunge ahead with reckless confidence" 14:16
  • "Short-tempered people do foolish things" 14: 17


  • "blessed are those who help the poor" 14: 21
