Proverbs 24:23-27

23 These also are sayings of the wise.

Partiality in judging is not good.
24 Whoever says to the wicked, “You are in the right,”
    will be cursed by peoples, abhorred by nations,
25 but those who rebuke the wicked will have delight,
    and a good blessing will come upon them.
26 Whoever gives an honest answer
    kisses the lips.

27 Prepare your work outside;
    get everything ready for yourself in the field,
    and after that build your house.

One response to “Proverbs 24:23-27

  1. Vs 27 is intriguing to me. This section is called the sayings of the wise. Vs 27 tells me that there is wisdom in following the natural and proper order of things. I don’t need to make my plans based on what I like, or enjoy, but rather on what is wise and what will benefit those I care for. I can have selfishness in my plans even if I am working hard.
