29:20 Do you see a man
who speaks in haste?
There is more hope for a fool than for him.
15:1 A gentle answer
turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.
14:12 There is a way that seems right to a man,
but in the end it leads to death.
13:20 He who walks with the wise grows wise,
but a companion of fools suffers harm.
13:1 A wise son heeds his
but a mocker does not listen to rebuke.
Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge,
but he who hates correction is stupid.
When words are many, sin is not absent,
but he who holds his tongue is wise.
And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.
"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
"Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.
"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?' 23Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'
1 Peter 5:8
Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
