May 8 Afternoon Quotes of The Day

Seek Advice from the Wise and God-Fearing
Proverbs 11:14; 15:22

Do not open your heart to every man, but discuss your affairs with one who is wise and who fears God.

Better to Endure Want for God
Philippians 4:11–12; 1 Timothy 6:6–8; Hebrews 13:5

It is better to endure some want for God’s sake than to abound in plenty. For the want that is borne for God begets humility, the source of all good. Whereas abundance produces pride, the root of all evils.
