Proverbs 22

Pro 22:1  A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.
Pro 22:2  The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all.
Pro 22:3  A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.
Pro 22:4  By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life.
Pro 22:5  Thorns and snares are in the way of the froward: he that doth keep his soul shall be far from them.
Pro 22:6  Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. 

We're back into Proverbs, now chapter 22.  Verse 1 reminds us that our reputation is worth more tahn silver and gold and to be picked.  Of course, reputation is built on character and good conduct.

The last one reminds parents of their duties toward children.
