Proverbs 16 by Doug
Proverbs 16:2 (NLT) –>The Lord knows our motives. We sometimes don't even know, and it's hard for us to know the motives of others. God knows why you do what you do, so be honest with him about it.
Proverbs 16:5 (NLT) –> I like the phrase "rest assured." It speaks of leaving it alone so that God can handle it instead of us. It's not my business to punish the proud. God will.
Proverbs 16:11 (NLT) –>Are you sure you're getting away with those shady business deals? Really sure?
Proverbs 16:17 (NLT) –>Away from evil. Not into the midst of it.
Proverbs 16:22 (NLT) –>Discretion---sorely lacking in so many, but to know when to hold back is life-sustaining!!
Proverbs 16:27 (NLT) –> Don't hunt the trouble. It'll be there soon enough.
Proverbs 16:31 (NLT) –>Gray hair is something we dye away in our culture. What does that say about us?
Proverbs 16:33 (NLT) –>Life is in the hands of God. Always.
