Proverbs 19: 10-12

It isn't right for a fool to live in luxury or for a slave to rule over princes! Sensible people control their temper; they earn respect by overlooking wrongs. The king's anger is like a lion's roar, but his favor is like dew on the grass.


  1. "...they earn respect by overlooking wrongs." Good point! It's easy to point things out, but it takes a stronger person to keep quiet. Ouch!

  2. The key here is knowing when to open your mouth and when to keep quiet. Sometimes it's better to keep quiet if the circumstances don't affect you directly. And then asking yourself if opening up will change things or make things better. If it's not going to make things better then sometimes it's better to just keep quiet. Sometimes people need to figure things out for themselves.
