Proverbs 17:1-6 NLT

1 Better a dry crust eaten in peace than a house filled with feasting—and conflict.
2 A wise servant will rule over the master’s disgraceful son and will share the inheritance of the master’s children.
3 Fire tests the purity of silver and gold, but the tests the heart.
4 Wrongdoers eagerly listen to gossip; liars pay close attention to slander.
5 Those who mock the poor insult their Maker; those who rejoice at the misfortune of others will be punished.
6 Grandchildren are the crowning glory of the aged; parentsa are the pride of their children.
