Closing in on halfway though Proverbs (31 Chapter). I wonder what we'll do next?
Pro 15:1 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
Pro 15:2 The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.
Pro 15:3 The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.
Pro 15:4 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.
Pro 15:5 A fool despiseth his father's instruction: but he that regardeth reproof is prudent.
Pro 15:6 In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.
Oh how we know the first one is true and chuck it right out the window when mad! I always, always, always get a better response from being polite than from flipping out. Yet it would appear I'd rather flip out. and it never works!
