Proverbs 28-31/Matthew 19-20
28:2 When there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples easily. But with wise and knowledgeable leaders, there is stability.
:26 Trusting oneself is foolish, but those who walk in wisdom are safe.
19:3-6 Some Pharisees came and tried to trap him with this question: “Should a man be allowed to divorce his wife for any reason?” “Haven’t you read the Scriptures?” Jesus replied. “They record that from the beginning `God made them male and female.”’ And he said, “This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one. Since they are no longer two but one, let no one separate them, for God has joined them together.”
