Proverbs 22:1-9 NLT

1 Choose a good reputation over great riches, for being held in high esteem is better than having silver or gold.
2 The rich and the poor have this in common: The LORD made them both.
3 A prudent person foresees the danger ahead and takes precautions; the simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.
4 True humility and fear of the LORD lead to riches, honor, and long life.
5 The deceitful walk a thorny, treacherous road; whoever values life will stay away.
6 Teach your children to choose the right path, and when they are older, they will remain upon it.
7 Just as the rich rule the poor, so the borrower is servant to the lender.
8 Those who plant seeds of injustice will harvest disaster, and their reign of terror will end.
9 Blessed are those who are generous, because they feed the poor.
