PROVERBS 22 is today's reading. Here are some verses for today:
1 A good name is more desirable than great wealth.Respect is better than silver or gold.
2 The rich and the poor have this in common: the Lord is the maker of them all.
3 Sensible people foresee trouble and hide from it, but gullible people go ahead and suffer the consequence.
4 On the heels of humility (the fear of the Lord) are riches and honor and life.
6 Train a child in the way he should go, and even when he is old he will not turn away from it.
7 A rich person rules poor people, and a borrower is a slave to a lender.
9 Whoever is generous will be blessed because he has shared his food with the poor.
17 Open your ears, and hear the words of wise people, and set your mind on the knowledge I give you.
