All who have

Proverbs 21:7 The robbery (violence) of the wicked shall
destroy them; because they refuse to do judgment.
God hates injustice, and He sees
to it that injustice is brought back
upon the wicked.
All of life is good vs evil; choose the good.
Judgment = justice or right; honestly
Either in this world, or the next.
8 The way of man is froward and strange: but as for
the pure, his work is right.
(NIV) 8 The way of the guilty is devious, but the
conduct of the innocent is upright.
We can know people by seeing the way
they live their lives.
One’s long term conduct reveals his mindset.
A liar lies because he is a liar.
A thief steals because he is a thief.
9 It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop,
than with a brawling woman in a wide house.
A mate, man or woman, who is
argumentative and quarrelsome,
is like a ball and chain.
1 Corinthians 13:4-5 (TLB) Love is
very patient and kind, never jealous
or envious, never boastful or proud,
never haughty or selfish or rude.
Love does not demand its own way. It is not irritable
or touchy. It does not hold grudges and will hardly
even notice when others do it wrong.
Ephesians 4 31-32 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and
anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away
from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to
another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even
as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
“Let” -- we have to turn it loose.
The people of God must turn loose of all ugliness.
Love will end the brawling in us.
We are not justified in such behavior.
Philippians 4 4-7 Rejoice in the Lord always: and
again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be
known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be
careful (anxious) for nothing; but in everything by
prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your
requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace
of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep
your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
People who are unhappy and worried tend to get
bitter, angry, and to talk ugly and hateful (brawling).
We need to trust God and grasp joy and peace.
Philippians 4 8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things
are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever
things are just, whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things
are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if
there be any praise, think on these things.
9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and
received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the
God of peace shall be with you.
Right thinking will produce
right words and deeds.

I am blessed;
I am happy.

10 The soul of the wicked desireth evil: his neighbor
findeth no favor in his eyes.
The evil desires of a wicked man's heart, lead to
baseness in his conduct.
Matthew Henry Concise Bible Commentary.
He is mean to everybody,
even his close neighbors.
11 When the scorner is punished, the simple is made
wise: and when the wise is instructed, he receiveth
Very often the scorner does not learn from his
own punishment, but a follower may learn and
change his ways.
But it is best to learn from instruction.
We don’t have to learn the hard way.
