One thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Wise men store up knowledge, but the mouth of a fool invites ruin.
With his mouth the godless destroys his neighbor, but through knowledge the righteous escape.
Pride only breeds quarrels, but wisdom is found in those who take advice.
The fear of the LORD teaches a man wisdom, and humility comes before honor.
The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, but a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.
Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.
A perverse man stirs up dissension, and a gossip separates close friends.
Better a poor man whose walk is blameless than a fool whose lips are perverse.
