  1. I loves these…thanks…there are so many to choose from….Prov.16:1 humans are satisfied by whatever looks good…God probes for what is good.

  2. Some of these are the Message version, I think. I love reading Proverbs in the Message. Here is one of my favorites Proverbs 4: 25-26 “Keep your eyes straight ahead; ignore all sideshow distractions.Watch your step,and the road will stretch out smooth before you.”
