10 Things I Want My Children To Know About Life

On May 10, it seems fitting to publish 10 Proverbs from Proverbs 10. These particular wisdom sayings are each lessons I want my children to live by.


  1. Tainted wealth has no lasting value, but right living can save your life.
  2. Lazy people are soon poor; hard workers get rich.
  3. The wise are glad to be instructed, but babbling fools fall flat on their faces.
  4. People who wink at wrong cause trouble, but a bold reproof promotes peace.
  5. Wise people treasure knowledge, but the babbling of a fool invites disaster.
  6. People who accept discipline are on the pathway to life, but those who ignore correction will go astray.
  7. Too much talk leads to sin. Be sensible and keep your mouth shut.
  8. Lazy people irritate their employers, like vinegar to the teeth or smoke in the eyes.
  9. The way of the LORD is a stronghold to those with integrity, but it destroys the wicked.
  10. The mouth of the godly person gives wise advice, but the tongue that deceives will be cut off.
