"The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame. When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall.

Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which … Continue reading Diligently Consider What Is Before You

Wealth … Continue reading The Wisdom of Walking With Integrity
"The house of the wicked shall be overthrown: but the tabernacle of the upright shall flourish. There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

A … Continue reading Matters of Wisdom and Mercy

"By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion. We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.
