A Journey Through the Psalms and Proverbs

Hello, my name is Eva Royer, and I serve on the Single Adults core leadership team. This past July, I began my 20th year working at Dallas radio station KLTY.  

Did you know we are not defined by who we used to be but for whose we are today? A few years ago, my friend Matthew West released a song, and these lyrics ministered to me: 

"Hello, my name is child of the one true King. 
I've been saved, I've been changed, I have been set free." 

When you're in the car, set your radio to 94.9 FM and be inspired by the uplifting music!

Proverbs 22:1-16

22:1 A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches,
and favor is better than silver or gold.
The rich and the poor meet together;
the Lord is the maker of them all.
The prudent sees danger and hides himself,
but the simple go on and suffer for it.
The reward for humility and fear of the Lord
is riches and honor and life. [1]
Thorns and snares are in the way of the crooked;
whoever guards his soul will keep far from them.
Train up a child in the way he should go;
even when he is old he will not depart from it.
The rich rules over the poor,
and the borrower is the slave of the lender.
Whoever sows injustice will reap calamity,
and the rod of his fury will fail.
Whoever has a bountiful [2] eye will be blessed,
for he shares his bread with the poor.
10 Drive out a scoffer, and strife will go out,
and quarreling and abuse will cease.
11 He who loves purity of heart,
and whose speech is gracious, will have the king as his friend.
12 The eyes of the Lord keep watch over knowledge,
but he overthrows the words of the traitor.
13 The sluggard says, “There is a lion outside!
I shall be killed in the streets!”
14 The mouth of forbidden [3] women is a deep pit;
he with whom the Lord is angry will fall into it.
15 Folly is bound up in the heart of a child,
but the rod of discipline drives it far from him.
16 Whoever oppresses the poor to increase his own wealth,
or gives to the rich, will only come to poverty. (ESV)
