Oct. 20, Day 294 - Proverbs 29

Click here to go to Proverbs 29

This verses jumps out at me:

To discipline a child produces wisdom,
    but a mother is disgraced by an undisciplined child. (15)
Discipline your children, and they will give you peace of mind
    and will make your heart glad. (17)

Just because I'm struggling with my 13 year old son, the boy needs some wisdom and I definitely could use the peace of mind.

Another good reminder:

Fearing people is a dangerous trap,
    but trusting the Lord means safety. (25)

  1. Proverbs 29
    11 A fool expresses all his emotions, but a wise person controls them.

    18 Without prophetic vision people run wild, but blessed are those who follow God’s teachings.

    20 Have you met a person who is quick to answer? There is more hope for a fool than for him.

    23 A person’s pride will humiliate him, but a humble spirit gains honor.

    25 A person’s fear sets a trap for him, but one who trusts the Lord is safe.

    26 Many seek an audience with a ruler, but justice for humanity comes from the Lord.

    27 An unjust person is disgusting to righteous people. A decent person is disgusting to wicked people.
