A Word Fitly Spoken . . .

Proverbs 25:8-11,15,20-22,25,27 NIV
What you have seen with your eyes do not bring hastily to court, for what will you do in the end if your neighbor puts you to shame? [9] If you take your neighbor to court, do not betray another’s confidence, [10] or the one who hears it may shame you and the charge against you will stand. [11] Like apples of gold in settings of silver is a ruling rightly given. [15] Through patience a ruler can be persuaded, and a gentle tongue can break a bone. [20] Like one who takes away a garment on a cold day, or like vinegar poured on a wound, is one who sings songs to a heavy heart. [21] If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. [22] In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you. [25] Like cold water to a weary soul is good news from a distant land. [27] It is not good to eat too much honey, nor is it honorable to search out matters that are too deep.
