Proverbs 17:17-21

17 A friend loves at all times,
and a brother is born for a time of adversity.

18 One who has no sense shakes hands in pledge
and puts up security for a neighbor.

19 Whoever loves a quarrel loves sin;
whoever builds a high gate invites destruction.

20 One whose heart is corrupt does not prosper;
one whose tongue is perverse falls into trouble.

21 To have a fool for a child brings grief;
there is no joy for the parent of a godless fool.


One response to “Proverbs 17:17-21

  1. God gives us family, because He loves us and He knows that they will help point us to Him and His strength in adversity. We are the ones who have to guard against ruining these relationships through selfishness.

    Children who are godless fools brings sadness and ruin to parents. I can not change my kids. But I can expose them to the truth of Scripture and trust God to shape and form their hearts.
