  2. 2. 2 Proverbs 17 1 Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife. 1 Thessalonians 4:11 (NIV) Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, Peace and happiness comes from the Lord; Living life His Way.
  3. 3. 3 3 John 1 2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper (enjoy good success) and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. This is what God wants for His children. Good success for the soul is the first priority here. If the soul doesn’t do well, nothing else matters.
  4. 4. 4 A barren soul makes a barren life. Psalm 103 1 Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me bless His Holy Name. 2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: 3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; Who healeth all thy diseases; 4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; Who crowneth thee with loving-kindness and tender mercies; 5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
  5. 5. 5 (TLB) 1 A dry crust eaten in peace is better than steak every day along with argument and strife. A home and family that lives in harmony and love is to be desired above any amount of wealth.
  6. 6. 6 Proverbs 21 9 It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house. Fussing, cussing, railing, and flailing is almost always a two-way street. Husbands and wives must learn to live peaceably. Refuse to escalate!
  7. 7. 7
  8. 8. 8 The Peace of God is the fruit of His Holy Spirit. He will produce peace in us as we submit fully and gladly to His Word and His Spirit. Yet, so many seem to work so hard to destroy their own peace of mind by pursuing sin. 1 Corinthians 13:5 (TLB) … Love does not demand its own way. … Live a life of love and enjoy peace. Soul Destroyer!
  9. 9. 9 1 Peter 2:11 (TLB) Dear brothers, you are only visitors here. Since your real home is in Heaven, I beg you to keep away from the evil pleasures of this world; they are not for you, for they fight against your very souls. The pleasures of this world are soul destroyers, stealing our peace and our joy.
  10. 10. 10 2 A wise servant shall have rule over a son that causeth shame, and shall have part of the inheritance among the brethren. Many times an employee who is faithful and listens to good wisdom is preferred Over a child who is unruly and won’t listen. That is as it should be!
  11. 11. 11 3 The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold: but the LORD trieth the hearts. As silver and... gold are purified under intense heat, so a believer’s heart is purified by the heat of trials which the LORD brings. The Bible Knowledge Commentary: An Exposition of the Scriptures by Dallas Seminary Faculty. James 1:2-3 (NIV) Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.
  12. 12. 12 1 Peter 1:6-7 (NIV) In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith -- of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire -- may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Genuine faith is proven through faithful obedience in difficult times of trials.
  13. 13. 13 4 A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue. Flatterers, especially false teachers, are welcome to those that live in sin. Matthew Henry Concise Bible Commentary. Sinners and backsliders love to listen to those who will tell them what they want to hear.
