proverbs 16

2 All a man's ways seem innocent to him,
but motives are weighed by the LORD.

we can be doing good things. biblical things. everyone in the world might say that what youre doing is good. but if youre doing those good deeds for a motive other than to give glory to god, its worthless.

7 When a man's ways are pleasing to the LORD,
he makes even his enemies live at peace with him.

i have a question about this verse. when youre pleasing god, and in his plan, youre not gonna have a perfect life. how is this verse true?

32 Better a patient man than a warrior,
a man who controls his temper than one who takes a city.

just imagine if you can do both.

8 The LORD detests the sacrifice of the wicked,
but the prayer of the upright pleases him.

someone asked me today if an unsaved person could do a good deed in gods eyes. i guess not.

17 Better a meal of vegetables where there is love
than a fattened calf with hatred.

and who likes vegetables?

proverbs 12

1 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge,
but he who hates correction is stupid

ill always think of mr harmless when i read this verse. he thought it was cool that the word stupid is in the bible.

9 Better to be a nobody and yet have a servant
than pretend to be somebody and have no food.

i just like this one. people like to pretend theyre something they arent. example: 7th grade PE. theres this little chubster who thinks hes awsome at sports, and he maintains his image in his eyes by pointing out flaws of others. but hes too fat to do any sport well. but he still gets some respect from his peers just cause he belives it himself. but its stupid. i want to smack him.
