  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

    On Life And Conduct

    Proverbs Chapter 19 • Daily Reading by Pastor Chopper Ward

    Proverbs 19
    King James Version

    Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity,
    than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.​

    2 Also, that the soul be without knowledge,
    it is not good; and he that hasteth with his feet sinneth.​

    3 The foolishness of man perverteth his way:
    and his heart fretteth against the Lord.​

    4 Wealth maketh many friends;
    but the poor is separated from his neighbour.​

    5 A false witness shall not be unpunished,
    and he that speaketh lies shall not escape.​

    6 Many will intreat the favour of the prince:
    and every man is a friend to him that giveth gifts.​
    7 All the brethren of the poor do hate him:
    how much more do his friends go far from him?
    he pursueth them with words, yet they are wanting to him.​

    8 He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul:
    he that keepeth understanding shall find good.​

    9 A false witness shall not be unpunished,
    and he that speaketh lies shall perish.​

    10 Delight is not seemly for a fool;
    much less for a servant to have rule over princes.​

    11 The discretion of a man deferreth his anger;
    and it is his glory to pass over a transgression.​

    12 The king's wrath is as the roaring of a lion;
    but his favour is as dew upon the grass.​

    13 A foolish son is the calamity of his father:
    and the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping.​

    14 House and riches are the inheritance of fathers:
    and a prudent wife is from the Lord.​

    15 Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep;
    and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.​

    16 He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul;
    but he that despiseth his ways shall die.​

    17 He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord;
    and that which he hath given will he pay him again.​

    18 Chasten thy son while there is hope,
    and let not thy soul spare for his crying.​

    19 A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment:
    for if thou deliver him, yet thou must do it again.​

    20 Hear counsel, and receive instruction,
    that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.​

    21 There are many devices in a man's heart;
    nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand.​

    22 The desire of a man is his kindness:
    and a poor man is better than a liar.​

    23 The fear of the Lord tendeth to life:
    and he that hath it shall abide satisfied;
    he shall not be visited with evil.​

    24 A slothful man hideth his hand in his bosom,
    and will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.​

    25 Smite a scorner, and the simple will beware:
    and reprove one that hath understanding, and he will understand knowledge.​

    26 He that wasteth his father, and chaseth away his mother,
    is a son that causeth shame, and bringeth reproach.​

    27 Cease, my son, to hear the instruction
    that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.​

    28 An ungodly witness scorneth judgment:
    and the mouth of the wicked devoureth iniquity.​

    29 Judgments are prepared for scorners,
    and stripes for the back of fools.

    About Author

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6
