Proverbs For Today

Scripture is very practical. Here are a few verses from the Old Testament book, Proverbs. Considering our nation's corrupt leaders and the volatile protests we've been seeing (and will see), these really speak the Truth:

Pro 29:2 When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, But when a wicked man rules, people groan.
Pro 29:4 The king gives stability to the land by justice, But a man who takes bribes overthrows it.
Pro 29:8  Scorners set a city aflame, But wise men turn away anger. 
Pro 29:9  When a wise man has a controversy with a foolish man, The foolish man either rages or laughs, and there is no rest. 
Pro 29:12 If a ruler pays attention to falsehood, All his ministers become wicked.
Pro 29:14 If a king judges the poor with truth, His throne will be established forever.
