31 Day Challenge, Proverbs Chapter 11

Well, verse 2 of Chapter 11 brought a smile to my face.  “Pride leads to disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.”Humility

With some of the humility lessons I have learned in my life, I feel as though I should be so much wiser.  My the stories I could tell; but I will share them in another post.

V. 17 “Your own soul is nourished when you are kind, but you destroy yourself when you are cruel.”

Wow, I like that verse.  Our actions- how we choose to act is so important!  Sometimes I ask my daughters about how they are choosing to act in different situations.  While they are young they need to understand that actions are a choice.  Our lives are not made up of reactions.

V.20 “The LORD hates people with twisted hearts, but he delights in those who have integrity.”

Integrity- doing what is right, when no one else knows.

We are getting into the section of Proverbs that has so much in it.  But I find it so reassuring that by living a godly life that it is the way to go.  Sometimes it feels like it takes so much more effort, but it is truly worth it!
