January 27: Proverbs 27

Anger is cruel, and wrath is like a flood,
      but jealousy is even more dangerous.

An open rebuke
      is better than hidden love!

Wounds from a sincere friend
      are better than many kisses from an enemy.

A person who strays from home
      is like a bird that strays from its nest.

The heartfelt counsel of a friend
      is as sweet as perfume and incense.

A loud and cheerful greeting early in the morning
      will be taken as a curse!

As iron sharpens iron,
      so a friend sharpens a friend.

As a face is reflected in water,
      so the heart reflects the real person.
