Proverbs 12:5(HCSB) ->Be wary of whose guidance you take.

Proverbs 12:10(HCSB) ->Do cats count? Is that really "my animal" since she doesn't acknowledge my ownership?

Proverbs 12:11(HCSB) ->Lord, let me not chase fantasies, but instead to focus on obedience to you!

Proverbs 12:16(HCSB) ->Needs to be memorized by NASCAR drivers. And lots of other people too.

Proverbs 12:25(HCSB) ->Let me cheer up hearts!

Galatians 6:4 ->Boast objectively. Are you, personally, as obedient as you should be? Are you as faithful as you should be? This is where being a band nerd in school is helpful compared to competitive athletics. We called it "Marching Contest" and "Concert Contest" but ultimately, the evaluation was whether or not the judges felt your band had done the best it could possibly do. You weren't seeing who was better, but rather who had taken on a hard challenge and accomplished it. Which is much more akin to what Paul is saying here than seeing who wins the playoffs.

1 Peter 1:23 ->Completely made new: because when you've been born, you don't go back. The power of God in our lives! Live your new birth in obedience.

Revelation 12:8 ->the dragon is no match for Michael, one of God's servants. Why do we fear? Overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony: That through Christ's death on the cross, through his resurrection, you are a child of God.
Moving toward the Horizon,
Doug
