Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the heart. To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice. Whoever pursues rightousness and honor will find LIFE, righteousness and honor.
A good name is better than riches. Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Borrower is slave to the lender. Do not move the ancient landmark that your fathers have set. <– Interesting. How does that apply to us today.
Let not your heart envy sinners. Continue in the fear of the Lord all the day.
Prepare for your work. Get everything ready for yourself, then build the house. <–resonates with me for some reason.
