Promises from the book of Proverbs - Study - 6

This is the last study on Proverbs, I hope it has been rewarding to you, check out this one too.

Proverbs 17:22  "A merry heart does good like a medicine."
I have found that this proverb is very true. I'm sure they all are but it is so important to be happy in whatever situation we are in.  It just makes life so much easier and when we have Jesus in our life it is really an outcome for sure of happiness or a merry heart.

Proverbs 19:11  "The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger, and his glory is to overlook a transgression."
It is a wonderful thing to be able to have the discretion and be slow to anger and have the glory to overlook the sin in others.

Proverbs 21:3  "To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice."

Proverbs 25:21,22  "If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he is thirsty give him water to drink; for so you will heap coals of fire on his head, and the Lord will reward you."

Proverbs 28:14  "Happy is the man who is always reverent."  And so pleasant to be around too.

Proverbs 28:25  "He who trust in the Lord will be prospered."
We should trust in the Lord with our lives and everyday duties and He will prosper us.

Proverbs 28:26  "Whoever walks wisely will be delivered."
Also if we are wise in our walk with the Lord, it says we will be delivered.

Proverbs 30:5,6  "Every word of God is pure, He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him.  Do not add to His words, lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar."

We know that every word of God is pure and we should know that to add to His words we will be rebuked and be found a liar if we change any of them.  That is really dangerous.   I hope you have enjoyed the book of Proverbs.  I love it, so much instruction in it and promises. Grandma Joan

PS  I have to add a verse from Ecclesiastes because I found only one promise so will add it here.

Ecclesiastes 7:9,10  "Do not haste to be angry in your spirit, for anger rests in the bosom of fools."
I guess it really isn't a promise but good instruction along with all the others.
