Proverbs 11

Today is a busy day, but I want to give you a piece of my quiet time from this morning and from Proverbs 11.  Read and may God guide each of us!!!
10 When good people succeed, the city is happy.  When evil people die, there are shouts of joy.

 11 Good people bless and build up their city, but the wicked can destroy it with their words.

 12 People without good sense find fault with their neighbors, but those with understanding keep quiet.

 13 Gossips can't keep secrets, but a trustworthy person can.

 14 Without leadership a nation falls, but lots of good advice will save it. 

 17 Kind people do themselves a favor,  but cruel people bring trouble on themselves.

 18 An evil person really earns nothing, but a good person will surely be rewarded.

 19 Those who are truly good will live, but those who chase after evil will die.

 20 The Lord hates those with evil hearts but is pleased with those who are innocent. 

 23 Those who do right only wish for good, but the wicked can expect to be defeated by God's anger.

 24 Some people give much but get back even more. Others don't give what they should and end up poor. 

 25 Whoever gives to others will get richer; those who help others will themselves be helped. 

 27 Whoever looks for good will find kindness, but whoever looks for evil will find trouble.

 28 Those who trust in riches will be ruined, but a good person will be healthy like a green leaf. 

 30 A good person gives life to others; the wise person teaches others how to live.
