Wednesdays in the Word

Proverbs 18 is full of gems! 
Here are a few: 

"A man who isolates himself seeks his own desire. He rages against all wise judgment." v.1

"A fool has no desire in understanding, but in expressing his own heart." v.2

"The words of a man's mouth are deep waters. The wellspring of the wisdom is a flowing brook." 
(note to self: be a brook not a gushing river -lol) v. 4

"The name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous run to it and are safe." (run to Him first!) v.10

"Before honor is humility." v. 12

"A man's gift makes room for him and brings him before great men." v. 16

"The first one to plead his cause seems right, until his neighbor comes and examines him." (great parenting verse for sure! lol) v.17

"Death and life are in the power of the tongue." (be devoted to speaking life over people and situations) v.21

"A man who has friends must himself be friendly. But there is a Friend who sticks closer than a brother."  Amen! v. 24

Have a blessed day!
