Proverbs 17 by Doug
Proverbs 17:1 (NLT) –>Isn't that true! Peace, the presence of good relations, is enough to turn dry crusts into feasts!
Proverbs 17:3 (NLT) –>And it won't be a smooth test. Fire melts and changes the form of silver and gold to demonstrate its purity. God will not leave us as we are to show ours.
Proverbs 17:16 (NLT)->This includes if he's on an athletic scholarship.
Proverbs 17:21 (NLT) –>This is true, whether it's your own fault they rebelled or they just went astray. However, there's no need to rub it in to these parents. Their sorrow is enough on its own.
Proverbs 17:22 (NLT) –>This explains a great many "mysteries" of medicine. Those with hope somehow seem more likely to recover from certain illnesses. Some people are just sicker than others, because their hearts are sad.
Proverbs 17:26 (NLT) –>Yet we do it anyway. What does that bode for our future?
