10 The godly care for their animals, but the wicked are always cruel. NLT
Human beings are made in God's image and are His highest creation. We are made like Him. Isn't it interesting that one's godliness can be evaluated in the way we treat the animals in our care.
27 Lazy people don’t even cook the game they catch, but the diligent make use of everything they find
I've noticed several verses in Proverbs that deal with laziness and how it effects a person. This verse takes the cake. A lazy person may start a project or start something to better themselves but they stall because they refuse to finish what they start. How silly would it be to go the grocery store and have food in the fridge but die from starvation because you didn't cook what you had? Got any projects that are half finished...maybe it is time to determine to finish the job.
25 Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up.
18 Some people make cutting remarks,
but the words of the wise bring healing.
19 Truthful words stand the test of time,
but lies are soon exposed.
Words can make all the difference in a persons life. Be careful what you utter.
Take a look at chapter 12 and meditate or think about some of the verses. Maybe there is one that fits your situation today. God has answers.
