Proverbs of a 40 yr. old man

A consistent person in your life is worthy of speaking into it. Reward those who care about you and pray for you by listening to their heart for you. It's the inconsistent people in our lives that we listen to the most because they give generalized statements that soothe the itching ear. Someone that is invested in you and wants to the best for you will give you truth in love and not spoil you with flattery. These are the things you must do: Speak truth to one another; make true and sound decisions within your city gates. Those who lead blameless lives and do what is right, speaking the truth from sincere hearts. Those who refuse to gossip or harm their neighbors or speak evil of their friends. Those who despise flagrant sinners, and honor the faithful followers of the LORD, and keep their promises even when it hurts. Those who lend money without charging interest, and who cannot be bribed to lie about the innocent. Such people will stand firm forever. So, let the godly strike me! It will be a kindness! If they correct me, it is soothing medicine. Don’t let me refuse it. Amen. Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise. If you keep being stubborn after many warnings, you will suddenly discover you have gone too far. Many will say they are loyal friends, but who can find one who is truly reliable? It's that consistent person in your life that can is reliable. For there are friends who are friends, and there is a friend that is closer than a brother.
