Sometimes the reason we’re frustrated is we’re trying to change things that only God can change. You can’t make people do what’s right. You can and should pray for them. You can encourage them, but they have their own free will. Don’t let them steal your joy. You are not responsible for other people’s happiness. You can not keep everyone in your life happy. You are responsible for your own happiness.
Your joy is your own; your bitterness is your own. No one can share them with you.
A good person’s house will still be standing after an evildoer’s house has been destroyed.
What you think is the right road may lead to death.
Laughter may hide sadness. When happiness is gone, sorrow is always there.
Bad people will get what they deserve. Good people will be rewarded for their deeds.
A fool will believe anything; smart people watch their step.
Sensible people are careful to stay out of trouble, but stupid people are careless and act too quickly.
People with a hot temper do foolish things; wiser people remain calm.
Ignorant people get what their foolishness deserves, but the clever are rewarded with knowledge.
Evil people will have to bow down to the righteous and humbly beg their favor.
No one likes the poor, not even their neighbors, but the rich have many friends.
