Proverbs 15:23-33 MSG

23 Congenial conversation - what a pleasure! The right word at the right time - beautiful!
24 Life ascends to the heights for the thoughtful - it's a clean about-face from descent into hell.
25 God smashes the pretensions of the arrogant; he stands with those who have no standing.
26 God can't stand evil scheming, but he puts words of grace and beauty on display.
27 A greedy and grasping person destroys community; those who refuse to exploit live and let live.
28 Prayerful answers come from God-loyal people; the wicked are sewers of abuse.
29 God keeps his distance from the wicked; he closely attends to the prayers of God-loyal people.
30 A twinkle in the eye means joy in the heart, and good news makes you feel fit as a fiddle.
31 Listen to good advice if you want to live well, an honored guest among wise men and women.
32 An undisciplined, self-willed life is puny; an obedient, God-willed life is spacious.
33 Fear-of-God is a school in skilled living - first you learn humility, then you experience glory.
