Which Proverb did you decide to make your own today?  To chew on…to meditate about…to apply to your life today?

What about:

“Wine is a mocker, Strong drink is a brawler, And whoever is led astray by it is not wise.”  Proverbs 20:1


“The lazy man will not plow because it is winter; He will beg during harvest and have nothing.”  20:4


“It is honorable for a man to stop striving, Since any fool can start a quarrel.”  20:3

or a political statement:

“Mercy and truth preserve the King, And by lovingkindness he upholds his throne.” 20:28

Are you drinking too much, not working enough, braced for a fight, or failing to expect honesty, mercy, and tenderness in your leaders?
