frugaling part 3

verses from Proverbs about wisdom with money

My son, do not forget my teaching but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity.  3:1

Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.  She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. 3:13

The wealth of the rich is their fortified city, but poverty is the ruin of the poor.  10:15

Better to be a nobody and yet have a servant than to pretend to be somebody and have no food.  12:9

One man pretends to be rich, yet has nothing.  Another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth.  13:7

A poor man’s field may produce abundant food, but injustice sweeps it away.  13:23

The wealth of the wise is their crown, but the folly of fools yields folly.  14:24

How much better to get wisdom than to get gold, to choose understanding rather than silver.  16:16

Of what use is money in the hand of a fool since he has no desire to get wisdom?  17:16

A man lacking judgment strikes hands in pledge and puts up security for his neighbor.  17:18

The wealth of the rich is their fortified city; they imagine it an unscalable wall.  18:11

Wealth brings many friends, but a poor man’s friend deserts him.  19:4

Houses and wealth are inherited from parents, but a prudent wife is from the Lord.  19:14

In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil but a foolish man devours all he has. 21:20

Rich and poor have this in common: The LORD

Rich and poor have this in common: The LORD  is the Maker of them all.  22:2

The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.  22:7

Do not be a man who strikes hands in pledge or puts up security for debts; if you lack the means to pay, your very bed will be snatched from under you.  22:26

Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint.  Cast but a glance at riches and they are gone, for they will sprout wings and fly off to the sky like an eagle.  23:4

If you find honey, eat just enough – too much of it, and you will vomit.  25:16

It is not good to eat too much honey, nor is it honorable to seek one’s honor.  25:27

A man who loves wisdom brings joy to his father, but a companion of prostitutes squanders his wealth.  29:3

The poor man and the oppressor have this in common: The LORD  gives sight to the eyes of both.  29:13
