Proverbs – Chapter 20

What stuck out to me…

19 A gossip betrays a confidence;
so avoid anyone who talks too much.

This is something my ears are sensitive to. There were times I told people not to do it. Then again, words that don’t belong to me slip from my mouth.

13 Do not love sleep or you will grow poor;
stay awake and you will have food to spare.

Either take it literally and don’t sleep too much or do not be lazy.

9 Who can say, “I have kept my heart pure;
I am clean and without sin”?

In all honestly this is something I can’t say with confidence. Can anyone say this is true to them?
