Proverbs 25:21-28

21 If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat;
    if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.
22 In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head,
    and the Lord will reward you.

23 Like a north wind that brings unexpected rain
    is a sly tongue—which provokes a horrified look.

24 Better to live on a corner of the roof
    than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.

25 Like cold water to a weary soul
    is good news from a distant land.
26 Like a muddied spring or a polluted well
    are the righteous who give way to the wicked.

27 It is not good to eat too much honey,
    nor is it honorable to search out matters that are too deep.

28 Like a city whose walls are broken through
    is a person who lacks self-control.

One response to “Proverbs 25:21-28

  1. Self control is a shield around our lives. When our self control is broken, the enemy comes in to destroy and to carry away.

    Righteousness is like good water. It is essential to living and a precious commodity. When we give place to evil, and compromise our values, we pollute this water. For us, and for those around who rely on it.
