Real Wisdom

Proverbs 1:7

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Associates of Wisdom

Proverbs 13:20

Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm

Benefits of Wisdom

Proverbs 3:13-15

Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding, for the gain from her is better than gain from silver
and her profit better than gold. She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her.

Slay Laziness

Proverbs 21:25

The desire of the sluggard kills him, for his hands refuse to labor.


Proverbs 13:11

Wealth gained hastily will dwindle, but whoever gathers little by little will increase it.

Drop the Ego

Proverbs 16:5

Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord; be assured, he will not go unpunished.

Embrace Humility

Proverbs 22:4

The reward for humility and fear of the Lord is riches and honor and life.

Resist Greed & Envy

Proverbs 11:4

Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death.

Say “Yes” to Generosity

Proverbs 11:24

One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.

Giving Correction

Proverbs 3:12

For the Lord reproves him whom he loves, as a father the son in whom he delights.

Providing Direction

Proverbs 22:6

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Staying Calm in Chaos

Proverbs 15:18

A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, but he who is slow to anger quiets contention.

Still Worthy of Honor

Proverbs 16:31

Gray hair is a crown of glory; it is gained in a righteous life.

Bad Words

Proverbs 10:18-19

When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent.

Good Words

Proverbs 16:24

Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.

Hard Words

Proverbs 27:5-6

Better is open rebuke than hidden love. Faithful are the wounds of a friend; profuse are the kisses of an enemy.

Bad Sex

Proverbs 6:32-33

He who commits adultery lacks sense; he who does it destroys himself. He will get wounds and dishonor, and his disgrace will not be wiped away.

Good Sex

Proverbs 5:18-19

Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice in the wife of your youth, a lovely deer, a graceful doe. Let her breasts fill you at all times with delight; be intoxicated always in her love.

More Than Sex

Proverbs 31:30

Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

Biblically Optimistic

Proverbs 21:30-31

No wisdom, no understanding, no counsel can avail against the Lord. The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the Lord.
