Which proverb especially speaks to your life situation today? How should you respond?
- The Righteous and the Wicked – Chapters 10-11 begin a number of short proverbs, many of which address the contrast between the righteous and the wicked. There is a general theme of blessing for the righteous, but trouble for the wicked. How have you seen this general truth to be true in your life? What exceptions have you seen?
- The Tongue – A good tongue gives life and wisdom; it feeds others. In what ways is your tongue like this?
