Proverbs 3

Don't lost your grip of love and loyalty. Tie them around your neck; carve their initials on your heart. 
Earn a reputation for living well in God's eyes and the eyes of people.
Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own. 
Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he's the one who will keep you on track.
Don't assume you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil! 
Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life! 
Honor God with everything you own; give him the first and the best.
Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over.
But don't, dear friend, resent God's discipline; don't sulk under his loving correction. 
It's the child he loves that God corrects; a fathers delight is behind all this. 


Never walk away from someone who deserves help; your hand is God's hand for that person.
Don't tell your neighbor "Maybe some other time" or "try my tomorrow" when the money's right there in your pocket.
