Proverbs 17

In the crucible and the furnace (verse 3), silver and gold lose their form and become the pure element of what they were meant to be. In the LORD, I lose my individual form and impurities, becoming the pure element of who I really am.

…and the glory of children is their fathers.

Proverbs 17:6

I know it warms me with joy when my children rejoice with me. I want to be their joy — and I want their joy to be Christ in me.

Bribes (verse 8) are a wise thing. I feel like that sentence should have more explanation, but that’s what it says.

Shut up if you want to look intelligent (verse 28).

Psalms 107

God redeems. I rejoice and am glad. Rejoice with me, that the LORD redeems!
