Wisdom and the work of the Christian community
Proverbs 16 – Kings detest wrongdoing: better a patient man than a warrior. Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall, better a patient man than a warrior.
Proverbs 17 – A friend loves at all times…and a brother… – fool thought wise if silent: discerning holds his tongue A wise servant will rule over a disgraceful son. A cheerful heart is good medicine but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

Romans 12 – Living sacrifices, love, sincerely
