BE YOURSELF 

NO

MATTER WHAT

COMES YOUR WAY!

FOR THERE IS NOTHING COVERED THAT WILL NOT BE REVEALED,

NOR HIDDEN THAT WILL NOT BE KNOWN.  THEREFORE,

WHATEVER YOU HAVE SPOKEN IN THE DARK WILL BE

HEARD IN THE LIGHT, AND WHATEVER YOU HAVE

SPOKEN IN THE EAR IN INNER ROOMS WILL BE

PROCLAIMED ON THE HOUSETOPS.

(LK12:2-3)

LIVE IN SUCH A WAY THAT

IF SOMEONE SPOKE BADLY

OF YOU, NO ONE

WOULD BELIEVE IT.

BREAD GAINED BY DECEIT IS SWEET TO A MAN,

BUT AFTERWARD HIS MOUTH

WILL BE FILLED WITH

GRAVEL. (PROV.20:17)

THE RIGHTEOUS MAN

WALKS IN HIS INTEGRITY;

HIS CHILDREN ARE BLESSED AFTER HIM.

EVEN A CHILD IS KNOWN BY HIS DEEDS

WHETHER WHAT HE DOES IS

PURE AND RIGHT.

DO NOT LOVE SLEEP, LEST YOU COME 

TO POVERTY;  OPEN YOUR EYES

AND YOU WILL BE

SATISFIED WITH BREAD.

HE WHO GOES ABOUT AS A TALE BEARER

REVEALS SECRETS; THEREFORE DO NOT

ASSOCIATE WITH ONE WHO

FLATTERS WITH HIS LIPS.

WEALTH MAKES MANY FRIENDS,

BUT THE POOR IS

SEPARATED FROM HIS FRIEND.

HE WHO KEEPS THE COMMANDMENT

KEEPS HIS SOUL, BUT HE WHO IS

CARELESS OF HIS WAYS WILL DIE.

HE WHO HAS PITY ON THE POOR

LENDS TO THE LORD, AND HE

WILL PAY BACK WHAT

HE HAS GIVEN.

THERE ARE MANY PLANS IN A MAN’S HEART,

NEVERTHELESS THE LORD’S COUNSEL –

THAT ALONE WILL STAND.

 CEASE LISTENING TO INSTRUCTION,

MY SON, AND YOU WILL STRAY

FROM THE

WORDS OF KNOWLEDGE.

DEATH AND LIFE ARE IN THE POWER OF THE TONGUE,

AND THOSE WHO LOVE IT WILL EAT ITS FRUIT.

THE SPIRIT OF A MAN IS THE LAMP OF THE LORD,

SEARCHING ALL THE INNER DEPTHS

OF HIS HEART.

THE GLORY OF YOUNG MEN IS THEIR STRENGTH;

AND THE SPLENDOR OF OLD MEN

THEIR GREY HEAD

DO NOT TRUST IN THE ABUNDANCE OF

YOUR RICHES AND STRENGTHEN

YOURSELF IN WICKEDNESS

BUT TRUST IN THE 

CONTINUOUS MERCY

OF GOD TO US ALL.

A MAN WHO HAS FRIENDS MUST

HIMSELF BE FRIENDLY,  BUT

THERE IS A FRIEND WHO

STICKS CLOSER THAT

A BROTHER.

THE KING’S HEART IS IN THE HAND OF THE LORD,

LIKE THE RIVERS OF WATER; HE TURNS IT

WHEREVER HE WISHES.

WHOEVER SHUTS HIS EARS TO THE

CRY OF THE POOR

WILL ALSO CRY HIMSELF

AND NOT BE HEARD.

THE HORSE IS PREPARED FOR THE DAY

OF BATTLE, BUT DELIVERANCE IS

OF THE LORD.

A GOOD NAME IS TO BE CHOSEN

RATHER THAN GREAT RICHES;

LOVING FAVOR RATHER THAN

SILVER AND GOLD.

EVERY WAY OF A MAN IS RIGHT IN

HIS OWN EYES, BUT THE LORD

WEIGHS THE HEARTS.

BETTER IS THE POOR WHO WALKS

IN HIS INTEGRITY, THAN ONE

WHO IS PERVERSE IN HIS

LIPS AND IS A FOOL.

HE WHO MOCKS THE POOR

REPROACHES HIS MAKER;

 HE WHO IS GLAD AT

CALAMITY WILL NEVER 

GO UNPUNISHED.

WHEN A MAN’S WAYS PLEASE

THE LORD, HE MAKES EVEN HIS 

ENEMIES TO BE AT PEACE

WITH HIM

PRIDE GOES BEFORE DESTRUCTION,

AND A HAUGHTY SPIRIT

BEFORE A FALL.
