A Journey Through the Psalms and Proverbs

Good morning, fellow Journeyers! My name is Amy Tubbesing.

Aside from the obvious reason to love this time of year—holiday cheer and all—it's also full-blown chili season! I have a pretty amazing bison-and-pumpkin chili recipe that will rock your taste buds. If you see me at Watermark, I will happily share the recipe with you. Trust me, the leftovers are totally worth all the chopping and simmering. And as a Texas native, it's a no-bean chili, duh.

Around Watermark, you can find me at re:generation on Monday nights and serving with the Single Adults ministry!

FOOL'S GOLD LOOKS GOOD ONLY TO FOOLS

Proverbs 28:18-28

18 Whoever walks in integrity will be delivered,
but he who is crooked in his ways will suddenly fall.
19 Whoever works his land will have plenty of bread,
but he who follows worthless pursuits will have plenty of poverty.
20 A faithful man will abound with blessings,
but whoever hastens to be rich will not go unpunished.
21 To show partiality is not good,
but for a piece of bread a man will do wrong.
22 A stingy man [1] hastens after wealth
and does not know that poverty will come upon him.
23 Whoever rebukes a man will afterward find more favor
than he who flatters with his tongue.
24 Whoever robs his father or his mother
and says, “That is no transgression,”
is a companion to a man who destroys.
25 A greedy man stirs up strife,
but the one who trusts in the Lord will be enriched.
26 Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool,
but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered.
27 Whoever gives to the poor will not want,
but he who hides his eyes will get many a curse.
28 When the wicked rise, people hide themselves,
but when they perish, the righteous increase.
(ESV)
