Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 19:1-7. In this Scripture, we are reminded that better is the poor who walk in integrity, than one who is perverse in their lips, and is a fool.
Also, that the soul without knowledge is not good; and those who are hasty with their feet sin.
The foolishness of a person corrupts their way: and their heart frets against the LORD.
Wealth makes many friends; but the poor is separated from his neighbor. Have you ever noticed how wealthy people seem to have many friends, but poor people have very few friends?
A false witness will not go unpunished, and those who speak lies will not escape. Lying will catch up with you. Even if you don’t get caught immediately, the truth will eventually come out and you will be caught in a lie.
Many will plead for the favor of a prince: and every person is a friend to those who give gifts.
All the brethren of the poor hate him: how much more do his friends go far from him? He pursues them with words, yet they are wanting to him.

5 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall not escape.
6 Many will intreat the favour of the prince: and every man is a friend to him that giveth gifts.
7 All the brethren of the poor do hate him: how much more do his friends go far from him? he pursueth them with words, yet they are wanting to him.
Things to think about:
- What do you think it means to walk in integrity?
- What does this Scripture say about a person who tells lies?
- How do the wealthy and the poor compare concerning friends?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
As we read this Scripture we are reminded that it is better to be poor and walk in integrity. Help us to walk in integrity in our lives and our businesses. Help us to be fair and honest to all people. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

King David went through a lot of tough times in his lifetime, but he loved God and trusted God to protect him from the enemies.
The book of Psalms was written by various people. About half of it was attributed to King David, whether they were written by David or for David is questioned by some biblical scholars. Some of the Psalms were written by Asaph and some say they were written for the sons of Korah and even Moses and Solomon were writers of the Psalms. The Psalms consists of poetry that was primarily meant to be used as songs of praise to the Lord.
