Proverbs 25

Proverbs 25:8 "Go not forth hastily to strive, lest [thou know not] what to do in the end thereof, when thy neighbour hath put thee to shame."
Proverbs 25:9 "Debate thy cause with thy neighbour [himself]; and discover not a secret to another:"
Quick anger causes embarrassment.   If you have a peeve, go and tell the neighbor. Have prayer with the neighbor, treat him as you would want to be treated yourself, and your argument will be over.   Don't go gossiping to other neighbors.

Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."
 To expect rain and it not to come is very disappointing. We see that someone who promises a gift and then doesn't give it is disappointing, as well.   A certain amount of sweetness is wonderful, but after you are full, extra sweetness can make you sick.
Proverbs 25:23 "The north wind driveth away rain: so [doth] an angry countenance a backbiting tongue."
Proverbs 25:24 "It is] better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman and in a wide house."
Proverbs 25:25 "[As] cold waters to a thirsty soul, so [is] good news from a far country."
Proverbs 25:26 "A righteous man falling down before the wicked [is as] a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring."
Proverbs 25:27 "[It is] not good to eat much honey: so [for men] to search their own glory [is not] glory."
 What makes a home is not the size of the house, but it is the peace and rest there.  To live with an angry brawling (fighting) person (man or woman) is miserable.  When you are hot and thirsty, there is no better drink that money can buy than a cool drink of water. Christians are supposed to stand up for what is right. An attack on a Christian is actually an attack upon their Lord.   A conceited person is not admired by anyone.
