Proverbs 32 by Harmon UMC

THESE ARE “PROVERBS” SUBMITTED BY MEMBERS OF HARMON UMC FOR ENJOYMENT AND UPLIFTING.

LET GO AND LET GOD. BY LETTING GOD … WE CAN LET GO!

GOD IS LOVE. WALK IN LOVE AND GOD WALKS WITH US, THEN WE CAN SHARE HIS LOVE!

IF YOU CAN’T SAY SOMETHING NICE … DON’T SAY ANYTHING.

A SMALL KINDNESS TOWARDS SOMEONE CAN MEAN MORE THAN WE KNOW … AT THAT MOMENT, THAT DAY, THAT YEAR, OR IN THEIR LIFE.

LET GOD’S LOVE FLOW THROUGH US.

DON’T BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU.

FORGIVENESS IS DIVINE, DON’T HOLD GRUDGES.

EVERYONE HAS A RIGHT TO THEIR OWN OPINION.

SMILE AND GREET YOUR ENEMIES, THEY WILL BE CONFUSED AND EVENTUALLY BECOME YOUR FRIEND.

CHILDREN ARE DIVINE, WE CAN LEARN FROM THEM.

PRAY AND THINK ABOUT ANSWERS TO A PROBLEM, OR PROJECT, WHILE DOING WORK YOU DON’T ENJOY.

LISTEN TO INSPIRATIONAL MUSIC WHEN FEELING LOW.

HELPING A FRIEND, TWO PEOPLE ARE BLESSED.

IF YOU EVER START TO MAKE THE COMMENT “I HATE TO TELL YOU THIS BUT…”,   DON’T. IT ONLY BRINGS PAIN.

DON’T LOOK BACK UNLESS THAT IS WHERE YOU WANT TO GO.

KNOWING IS NOT ENOUGH; WE MUST APPLY.

WILLING IS NOT ENOUGH; WE MUST DO.

IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING MEAN TO SAY; DO NOT SAY ANYTHING AT ALL.

ALWAYS HAVE A SMILE AND SAY “THANK YOU”.

ALWAYS GIVE THANKS FOR YOUR MANY BLESSINGS.

A PERSON IS AS BEAUTIFUL ON THE INSIDE AS ON THE OUTSIDE.

THE BEST HELPING HAND YOU WILL EVER FIND IS ATTACHED TO YOUR OWN WRIST.

YOUR WORD IS YOUR BOND.

IF YOU DON’T WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW HOW LITTLE YOU KNOW, DON’T OPEN YOUR MOUTH AND TELL THEM.

THERE IS NEVER AN EXCUSE NOT TO GO TO CHURCH EXCEPT WHEN YOU ARE TOO ILL TO GET THERE.

WHILE WORKING IN A DEPARTMENT STORE IN HOUSTON, A WOMAN CAME IN LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO WEAR. HER CLOTHES WERE RUMPLED, HER HAIR WAS NOT COMBED, HER SKIN WAS BROWN AS LEATHER. SHE LOOKED LIKE SHE DIDN’T HAVE TWO NICKELS TO RUB TOGETHER. SHE TOLD ME HER SIZE AND I STARTED SHOWING HER DRESSES. WE BEGAN TALKING AND I FOUND OUT THAT HER HUSBAND WAS A ‘WILDCAT DRILLER’ WHO HAD JUST STRUCK OIL BIG TIME! SHE WAS IN NEED OF HELP. I REALLY HAD FUN HELPING HER!

DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF AND EVERYTHING IS SMALL STUFF.

IT NEVER HURTS TO SAY “THANK YOU”.

BEING POSITIVE IN A NEGATIVE WORLD IS AS CHALLENGING AS TRYING TO SHOE A COW.

SMILE ON PURPOSE AND WATCH THE RESULTS.

DOING A GOOD DEED FOR SOMEONE ELSE WILL LIGHTEN YOUR OWN HEAVY LOAD.

IF YOU THINK YOU CAN OR CAN’T DO SOMETHING, YOU ARE PROBABLY RIGHT.

STRIVE FOR EXCELLENCE, NOT PERFECTION.

DON’T MAJOR IN MINOR THINGS.

LEAVE EVERYTHING A LITTLE BETTER THAN YOU FOUND IT.

TRY TO DISAGREE WITHOUT BEING DISAGREEABLE.

HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY.

IF YOU DON’T HAVE TIME TO DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME, WHEN WILL YOU FIND TIME TO DO IT OVER?

BE AWARE OF THE SMALL MOMENTS, NOW.

RECOGNIZED SMALL MOMENTS OF JOY RESULT IN OVERALL FEELINGS OF HAPPINESS.

YOU LOSE HOPE WHEN YOU LOSE TOUCH WITH THE LORD.

IT IS A MEDICAL FACT THAT FORGIVING AND LOVING IS THE BEST MEDICINE FOR A HEALTHY BODY.

AFTER ATTEMPTING TO RAISE 7 CHILDREN AND THEIR CHILDREN, I QUICKLY REALIZED THAT I COULDN’T PROTECT THEM AT ALL TIMES. SO EACH MORNING, I ASKED GOD TO PLEASE PUT HIS GUARDIAN ANGELS AROUND THEM. ONE DAY ONE SON FELL OFF A VERY TALL LADDER. ANOTHER SON PARKED ON A HILL AND HIS TRUCK RAN OVER HIS ENTIRE RIGHT SIDE. NOT A BONE WAS BROKEN.

ROMANS 8:28 “WE KNOW THAT ALL THINGS WORK FOR GOOD FOR THOSE WHO LOVE GOD.”

MY ENTIRE LIFE I HAVE ALWAYS ASKED GOD TO NEVER TAKE MY JOY FROM ME. DURING A TIME OF TRUE DISASTER IN MY LIFE, EVERYWHERE I WENT SOMEONE WOULD SEND ME A NOTE OR SAY “READ ROMANS 8”. EVEN MY DOCTOR TOLD ME READ ROMANS 8. THROUGH THESE TESTIMONIES I REALIZED GOD USES EACH OF US AS HIS ANGELS AND MESSENGERS TO OTHERS. LET’S BE AVAILABLE DAILY WHEN GOD ASKS US TO DO SOMETHING, AND DO IT.

ROMANS 8:16 “THE SPIRIT BEARETH WITNESS WITH OUR SPIRIT, THAT WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD. AND IF CHILDREN, THEN HEIRS; HEIRS OF GOD, AND JOINT-HEIRS WITH CHRIST; IF SO BE THAT WE SUFFER WITH HIM, THAT WE MAY ALSO BE GLORIFIED WITH HIM.”

ROMANS 8:31 “IF GOD BE FOR US, WHO CAN BE AGAINST US?”

ROMANS 8:37 “NOTHING IN ALL CREATION SHALL BE ABLE TO SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF GOD, WHICH IS IN CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD!”

YOU WILL NEVER DO WRONG DOING WHAT GOD CALLS RIGHT.

THE GIVER IS ALWAYS THE ONE WHO RECEIVES THE MOST.
