Proverbs 22:1-9

Instructions to Live By

If you have to choose between a good reputation and great wealth, choose a good reputation.

The rich and the poor have this in common: the Lord made them both.

Sensible people will see trouble coming and avoid it, but an unthinking person will walk right into it and regret it later.

Have reverence for the Lord, be humble, and you will get riches, honor, and a long life.

If you love your life, stay away from the traps that catch the wicked along the way.

Teach a child how he should live, and he will remember it all his life.

Poor people are the rich man’s slaves. Borrow money and you are the lender's slave.

If you plant the seeds of injustice, disaster will spring up, and your oppression of others will end.

Be generous and share your food with the poor. You will be blessed for it.
