Proverbs 10-13: Way of the Righteous

(10-13) Describe the righteous person’s thoughts, words, and actions (10:11, 31-32; 11:5; 12:5, 10, 26; 13:5).

How well does that describe you?  How do you need to change?

(10-13) What are some of the results of being righteous?

Give an example of when you have seen or experienced these general truths.

Have you seen exceptions to this general truth?

(10-13) How does Proverbs describe the sluggard (10:4-5, 26; 12:11, 24, 27; 13:4; see also 6:6-11)?  What word pictures are used?

What lessons can we learn?

(10-13) Several proverbs in each chapter address our use of the tongue.  Contrast the tongue of the wise (righteous) with the tongue of the fool (wicked):

Which tongue better describes your tongue?  What changes do you need to make?

(10) Read v19.  Why is this true?  What application do you need to make?

(10-12) Read v10:11, 10:32, 11:9, 12:18.  How can our words bring healing and give life?  How can our words hurt and destroy?  What lessons should we learn?  What changes do we need to make?
