Reading along with us in Proverbs? Here’s today’s reading:

Proverbs 15 (ESV)

A soft answer turns away wrath,
    but a harsh word stirs up anger.
The tongue of the wise commends knowledge,
    but the mouths of fools pour out folly.
The eyes of the Lord are in every place,
    keeping watch on the evil and the good.
A gentle tongue is a tree of life,
    but perverseness in it breaks the spirit.
A fool despises his father’s instruction,
    but whoever heeds reproof is prudent.
In the house of the righteous there is much treasure,

  1. 30 The light of the eyes rejoices the heart,
    and good news refreshes the bones.
    31 The ear that listens to life-giving reproof
    will dwell among the wise.
    32 Whoever ignores instruction despises himself,
    but he who listens to reproof gains intelligence.
    33 The fear of the Lord is instruction in wisdom,
    and humility comes before honor.

  2. I was taken by that first verse as well Sarah. How important to remember when we are in conflictual situations to put water on the fire rather than gas.

    There is also a consistent strain here about what the Lord detests and it is always about the thoughts and actions of the wicked and the results they bring as compared to the thoughts and actions of the righteous and how God delights in those.

    And better is a little with the fear of the Lord, than great wealth with turmoil! And better is a meal of vegetables where there is love than a fattened calf with hatred. But certainly the best case scenario is a fattened calf with love….
