1 Have you ever expressed angst when a matter made you mad?
You felt your spirit sadly tank knowing that you have been had.
2 O how we need to control the tongue using it for gain,
An unruly tongue can come undone inflicting heartache and pain.
4 A healing tongue will bring life; that’s how it should be used,
But it is a fire of evil and strife when allowed to lie and accuse.
9 The Lord is not pleased with wicked men who love to scheme and plot.
10 Rejecting correction again and again, punishment is their lot.
13 A joyful heart makes your face bright, but sadness crushes the soul.
If you make God your daily delight, He will keep you whole.
15 All the days of those oppressed are wretched as can be.
Better to be by God possessed—on that we all agree.
16 I may not have much in worldly wealth, but treasure in heaven awaits.
Riches are mine and eternal health the moment I enter His gates.
25 The Lord tears down the house of the proud, the widow He protects.
To abuse the widow is disallowed if ever you would be blessed.
31 Listen, my friend, with a humble heart to thoughts that are well advised.
It will give you a blessed head start on the journey to become wise.
32 If you reject God’s discipline, you only harm yourself.
Failing to surrender to Him will put you aside on the shelf.
33 Reverence for God is an apt beginning, for it will make you strong
Granting power to stop the sinning; forgive you for all past wrongs.
Humility comes before honor bestowed, obedience before the glory.
O God, through me let your Spirit flow. May that be my earthly story.
