Proverbs 20:5-14

Knowing what is right is like deep water in the heart;
    a wise person draws from the well within.

Lots of people claim to be loyal and loving,
    but where on earth can you find one?

God-loyal people, living honest lives,
    make it much easier for their children.

Leaders who know their business and care
    keep a sharp eye out for the shoddy and cheap,
For who among us can be trusted
    to be always diligent and honest?

Switching price tags and padding the expense account
    are two things God hates.

Young people eventually reveal by their actions
    if their motives are on the up and up.

Drinking from the Chalice of Knowledge

Ears that hear and eyes that see—
    we get our basic equipment from God!

Don’t be too fond of sleep; you’ll end up in the poorhouse.
    Wake up and get up; then there’ll be food on the table.

The shopper says, “That’s junk—I’ll take it off your hands,”
    then goes off boasting of the bargain.
