Proverbs 21:22-26

22 One who is wise can go up against the city of the mighty
    and pull down the stronghold in which they trust.

23 Those who guard their mouths and their tongues
    keep themselves from calamity.

24 The proud and arrogant person—“Mocker” is his name—
    behaves with insolent fury.

25 The craving of a sluggard will be the death of him,
    because his hands refuse to work.
26 All day long he craves for more,
    but the righteous give without sparing.

One response to “Proverbs 21:22-26

  1. The righteous look out for others, meet their needs, and disregard their own desires.

    The sluggard and the mocker seek their own pleasure, put their own desires first, and ignore those in need.

    Guarding my tongue, being slow to speak, and measuring my words, will keep me from calamity and trouble. I get myself into trouble with my mouth. Just shutting up will keep me from hurting others.
