January 28: Proverbs 28

When there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples easily.
      But wise and knowledgeable leaders bring stability.

Young people who obey the law are wise;
      those with wild friends bring shame to their parents.

God detests the prayers
      of a person who ignores the law.

Blessed are those who fear to do wrong,
      but the stubborn are headed for serious trouble.

A wicked ruler is as dangerous to the poor
      as a roaring lion or an attacking bear.

In the end, people appreciate honest criticism
      far more than flattery.

Whoever gives to the poor will lack nothing,
      but those who close their eyes to poverty will be cursed
