Proverbs 25 is full of practical wisdom for everyday situations. Value humility. Discern before speaking. Respect your neighbor. Listen and learn from correction. Share only stories that you have all the facts. A gentle tongue earns trust. Self Control.

Proverbs 26 Wisdom... Foolish talk is a trap. Listen... Discern... Communicate Clearly. vrs 23, "Smooth talk from an evil heart is like glaze on cracked pottery." Look at the heart behind the words and actions. Take your worth from what Jesus Christ thinks of you and not others... He loves and pursues you.... others will change their mind.

Proverbs 27... focus on today. Lord, help me see danger and take refuge. Thank you for friends that sharpen me as iron. As a shepherd, help me to know the condition of the flocks that You have entrusted me... equip and guide me to lead them to grassy meadows and quiet waters. (Psalm 23)

Proverbs 28 ... the righteous are as bold as a lion. ... a man of understanding and knowledge maintains order. ... those who keep the law resist the wicked. ...those who seek the Lord understand justice. (13) He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy. (14) Blessed is the man who always fears the Lord, but he who hardens his heart falls into trouble. ...he who walks in wisdom is kept safe.

Proverbs 29:1, Whoever stubbornly refuses to accept criticism will suddenly be destroyed beyond recovery. vrs 11, Fools vent their anger, but the wise quietly hold it back. vrs25 Fearing people is a dangerous trap, but trusting the Lord means safety.

Use discipline to form new habits. Root out anger in your heart before it becomes an armed explosive just waiting to be released. Focus attention and time learning what God thinks of you and live from that perspective... that's worship.

Final sprint through the wisdom of Proverbs

Proverbs 30:5, Every word that God says is perfect. God is a safe place for people who go to Him.

Proverbs 30:7-9, Lord, I ask you to do two things for me before I die. Don’t let me tell lies. And don’t make me too rich or too poor—only give me the things I need each day. If I have more than I need, then I will think I don’t need you. But if I am poor then I might steal. Then I will bring shame to the name of God.
