Proverbs LEADERSHIP challenge reading (day 22)

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.

22-23 Do not rob the poor because they are poor or trample on the rights of an oppressed person at the city gate, because the Lord will plead their case and will take the lives of those who rob them.

Power truth we need to hear and hold.... pray for one another!
