A light unto our path in this life, indeed God's word is! Proverbs is so chocked full of sage wisdom and occasionally humor, that you are missing out if you do not read it regularly. Thank you for joining me here, to give me the opportunity to share with you some of my favorite passages from Proverbs 27, copy and pasted from Biblegateway (KJV). Scripture in green. My comments in black.
2 Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.
Don't BRAG ! Let your works, your behavior, your reputation, speak for you. Compliment others sincerely and look for ways to build them up. Others may build you up in kind.
6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.
There is more value and decency in a friend accidentally hurting you, than an enemy or insincere person merely PRETENDING to like you or to be your friend. Friends are worth working through the hard times with...finding resolution and restoration and forgiveness after there has been tension, or hurt. Friends always have high value. Let the friend be proved and purified over time, and treated with value.
