Proverbs 27

Verse 11 - "Be wise, my son, and make my heart glad, that I may answer him who reproaches me."
Every parent wants to see wisdom in their child.  Deepest joy results!

Verse 20 - "Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied, and never satisfied are the eyes of man."
Our appetites are never satisfied, if we let them run a muck.  This is compared to Hell - gorging yourself on food, sex, drugs, etc.

Verse 21 - "The crucible is for silver, and the furnace is for gold, and a man is tested by his praise."
Two things especially test people: affliction and success.  What do you do with that little extra money you come across at the end of a month?  It reveals a lot about your character.

God our Father has a wise Son, and everlasting love, joy and peace are theirs.
Practice heart contentment with what you have, instead of seeking more to consume.
