Proverbs 18

"God’s name is a place of protection—
    good people can run there and be safe.

11 The rich think their wealth protects them;
    they imagine themselves safe behind it.
12 Pride first, then the crash,
    but humility is precursor to honour.
13 Answering before listening
    is both stupid and rude.
14 A healthy spirit conquers adversity,
    but what can you do when the spirit is crushed?
15 Wise men and women are always learning,
    always listening for fresh insights.
16 A gift gets attention;
    it buys the attention of eminent people." - Proverbs 18 (Message)

When I stumbled upon Proverbs 18 today, I have to admit that I only needed to read verse 10 - that was enough for me - God gave me the hope and encouragement I needed. As you read these words, may you find a WORD of comfort from one of the lives of this Proverb.

Living in Grace
