Family & Friends on Fridays - Who's In Charge?

Proverbs 16:1-9

1 To man belong the plans of the heart,
but from the LORD comes the reply of the tongue.

2 All a man's ways seem innocent to him,
but motives are weighed by the LORD.

3 Commit to the LORD whatever you do,
and your plans will succeed.

4 The LORD works out everything for His own ends—
even the wicked for a day of disaster.

5 The LORD detests all the proud of heart.
Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished.

6 Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for;
through the fear of the LORD a man avoids evil.

7 When a man's ways are pleasing to the LORD,
he makes even his enemies live at peace with him.

8 Better a little with righteousness,
than much gain with injustice.

9 In his heart a man plans his course,
but the LORD determines his steps.

Psalms 127:1-3

1 Unless the LORD builds the house,
its builders labor in vain.

Unless the LORD watches over the city,
the watchmen stand guard in vain.

2 In vain you rise early and stay up late,
toiling for food to eat—
for He grants sleep to those He loves.

3 Sons are a heritage from the LORD,
children a reward from Him.
