This evening, Boy and I read Proverbs 19, as it is the 19th of February.

These are a few of the verses taken from the King James version that spoke to me, including my thoughts on some of them:

1 BETTER is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in
his lips, and is a fool.

**I need to work on worshiping with my actions and not just my words**

4 Wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is separated from his neighbour.

11 The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over
a transgression.

**I need to be sure to defer my anger and look lightly upon the transgressions of others**

15 Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.

**I need to work on not being slothful**

16 He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul; but he that despiseth his ways shall die.

23 The fear of the Lord tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.

**I want to work hard at keeping all of the commandments. The more we know, the more we are obligated to do. It's hard to keep in check at times. I am thankful that Heavenly Father loves us and has mercy upon us**
