Dishonest money brings grief to all the family, but hating bribes brings happiness. A good man pours out his evil words without a thought. The Lord is far from the wicked, but he hears the prayers of the righteous. Pleasant sights and good reports give
happiness and health. If you profit from constructive criticism, you will be elected to the wise men’s hall of fame. But to reject criticism is to harm yourself and your own best interests. Humility and reverence for the Lord will make you both wise and honored.
