January 18: Proverbs 18

Fools have no interest in understanding; they only want to air their own opinions.

Wise words are like deep waters; wisdom flows from the wise like a bubbling brook.

Fools’ words get them into constant quarrels; they are asking for a beating.

Rumors are dainty morsels that sink deep into one’s heart.

Spouting off before listening to the facts is both shameful and foolish.

The human spirit can endure a sick body, but who can bear a crushed spirit?

Intelligent people are always ready to learn. Their ears are open for knowledge.

Wise words satisfy like a good meal; the right words bring satisfaction.

The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.

The man who finds a wife finds a treasure, and he receives favor from the Lord.

Whoa! Good chapter. Lots of wisdom here.
