What is Your Favorite Proverb?

Ok, I am looking for a cheat sheet. I got this email from the leader of my church community group (small group):

We are really excited about resuming our community group . . . We’ve really missed meeting together over the summer . . . All of the community groups will be studying Proverbs this fall so be thinking about your favorite proverb or your favorite lesson from the book of Proverbs. Also, be thinking about what you would like to get out of the time we will spend together in this book. We should have the study guides ("Proverbs" from the Navigator’s Life Change Series)
Certainly, if you have a proverb you like from outside the Bible - bring it on. It just won't help my Old Testament study deficiency.


  1. I have to cheat and give two, but they're really a pair, from Proverbs 26:4-5 (TNIV):

    4. Do not answer fools according to their folly, or you yourself will be just like them.

    5. Answer fools according to their folly, or they will be wise in their own eyes.

  2. i want the proverb and why!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *DONT_KNOW*


How to debate charitably (rules are links to more description of rule):
1. The Golden Rule
2. You cannot read minds
3. People are not evil
4. Debates are not for winning
5. You make mistakes
6. Not everyone cares as much as you
7. Engaging is hard work
8. Differences can be subtle
9. Give up quietly
