    Proverbs: “A wise son brings joy to his father and a foolish one grief to his mother.” One comment at Gloucester Outdoor Church: “Why doesn’t it say that he brings grief to his father?” Because if you’re the husband and your son does something great, you say ‘that’s my boy!’ but if he does something foolish, the husband blames the mother!

    Proverbs 11:17: “People who are kind will be rewarded for their kindness, but cruel people will be rewarded with trouble.” Comments at Gloucester outdoor Church: “It doesn’t say when they’ll be rewarded!” “They’ll get their just desserts!”
    Proverbs 11:18: “The wicked man earns deceptive wages, but he who sows righteousness reaps a sure reward.” What is a sure reward? Something secure? Answer: Clarity of self-worth – being aware that you have self-worth: that is of lasting value. You can’t take stuff with you when you die.
    Proverbs 11:24: “Some people give freely and gain more; others refuse to give and end up with less.” I’m encouraging my kids to be generous by offering them a toy, but saying that they have to take a toy that works that they don’t play with and give it to someone needier than them.
