Proverbs 3:1-35

1 My son, forget not my law; but let your heart keep my commandments: 2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to you. 3 Let not mercy and truth forsake you: bind them about your neck; write them on the table of your heart: 4 So shall you find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man. 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not to your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths. 7 Be not wise in your own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. 8 It shall be health to your navel, and marrow to your bones. 9 Honor the LORD with your substance, and with the first fruits of all your increase: 10 So shall your barns be filled with plenty, and your presses shall burst out with new wine. 11 My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction: 12 For whom the LORD loves he corrects; even as a father the son in whom he delights. 13 Happy is the man that finds wisdom, and the man that gets understanding. 14 For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. 15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things you can desire are not to be compared to her. 16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honor. 17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. 18 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold on her: and happy is every one that retains her. 19 The LORD by wisdom has founded the earth; by understanding has he established the heavens. 20 By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew. 21 My son, let not them depart from your eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion: 22 So shall they be life to your soul, and grace to your neck. 23 Then shall you walk in your way safely, and your foot shall not stumble. 24 When you lie down, you shall not be afraid: yes, you shall lie down, and your sleep shall be sweet. 25 Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it comes. 26 For the LORD shall be your confidence, and shall keep your foot from being taken. 27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of your hand to do it. 28 Say not to your neighbor, Go, and come again, and to morrow I will give; when you have it by you. 29 Devise not evil against your neighbor, seeing he dwells securely by you. 30 Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done you no harm. 31 Envy you not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways. 32 For the fraudulent is abomination to the LORD: but his secret is with the righteous. 33 The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesses the habitation of the just. 34 Surely he scorns the scorners: but he gives grace to the lowly. 35 The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.

Isaiah 40:28-31

28 Have you not known? have you not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, faints not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. 29 He gives power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increases strength. 30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: 31 But they that wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

2 Corinthians 9:7

7 Every man according as he purposes in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loves a cheerful giver.

Matthew 6:1-4

1 Take heed that you do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise you have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. 2 Therefore when you do your alms, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Truly I say to you, They have their reward. 3 But when you do alms, let not your left hand know what your right hand does: 4 That your alms may be in secret: and your Father which sees in secret himself shall reward you openly.

17 The righteous cry, and the LORD hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles. 18 The LORD is near to them that are of a broken heart; and saves such as be of a contrite spirit. 19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivers him out of them all. 20 He keeps all his bones: not one of them is broken.
