Today’s Reading – Proverbs 26, 27, 28
Highlights: We have 2 more days in Proverbs. Some of the topics in today’s reading are fools, laziness , gossip and meddling in the affairs of others, pride, turning from sin, etc. Fools are a big topic, especially in chapter 26, but 26:12 says “do you see a man wise in his own eyes?
