Proverbs on the Heart
My child, never forget the things I have taught you. Store my commands in your heart, for they will give you a long and satisfying life.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will direct you paths.
Above all else, guard your heart, for it effects everything you do.
There are six things the Lord hates – no, seven things he detests: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that kill the innocent, a heart that plots evil, feet that race to do wrong, a false witness who pours out lies, a person who sows discord among brothers.
Proverbs 6: 20-21
My son, obey your father’s commands, and don’t neglect your mother’s teaching. Keep their words always in your heart. Tie them around your neck.
The words of the godly are like sterling silver; the heart of a fool is worthless.
The Lord hates people with twisted hearts, but he delights in those who have integrity.
Deceit fills hearts that are plotting evil, joy fills hearts that are planning peace!
Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up.
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when dreams come true, there is life and joy.
Laughter can conceal a heavy heart; when the laughter ends, the grief remains.
A relaxed attitude lengthens life; jealously robs it away.
A glad hearts makes a happy face; a broken heart crushes the spirit.
We can gather our thoughts, but the Lord gives the right answer.
We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.
The crooked heart will not prosper; the twisted tongue tumbles into trouble.
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.
Who can say, “I have cleansed my heart; I am pure and free from sin”?
Haughty eyes, a proud heart, and evil actions are all sin.
Smooth words may hide a wicked heart, just as a pretty glaze covers a common clay pot.
As a face is reflected in water, so the heart reflects the person.
Blessed are those who have a tender conscience, but the stubborn are headed for serious trouble.
