Proverbs 13:1-5

A wise son heeds his father’s instruction,
but a mocker does not respond to rebukes.

2 From the fruit of their lips people enjoy good things,
but the unfaithful have an appetite for violence.

3 Those who guard their lips preserve their lives,
but those who speak rashly will come to ruin.

4 A sluggard’s appetite is never filled,
but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied.

5 The righteous hate what is false,
but the wicked make themselves a stench
and bring shame on themselves.

One response to “Proverbs 13:1-5

  1. Diligent desires are satisfied. Not because blessings will always rain down on them, but because their desires are good and in line with the Way of Christ and they do not wish for selfish things. Bringing our desires under the subejction of our spirit is tough, and our natural man is always raging for more. Walking in truth every day, and “exercising” our spirit, will strenghthen it against the flesh.
