Q: Could you find some new texts in the Bible? All people w do is preach the same stuff again and again.
A: The Bible isn’t a work in progress. It was completed a couple thousand years ago.
However, bet there are tons of texts you didn’t even know were in there, passages that could teach you important stuff. Let’s see if I can dig up a couple in just one book.
Did you know that loving God helps fight sickness? «Fear the LORD and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones» (Proverbs 3:7, 8).
I’ll bet you weren’t aware that the Bible contains a sure for-mula for getting rich. Here it is. «Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth» (Proverbs 10:4).
Want to know how to keep other people’s words from hurting you? «With their mouths the godless destroy their neighbors, but through knowledge the righteous escape» (Proverbs 11:9). Worrying about someone cheating you? «Whoever puts up security for a stranger will surely suffer, but whoever refuses to shake hands in pledge is safe» (Proverbs 11:15).
Tempted by get-rich-quick opportunities? «Those who work their land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies have no sense» (Proverbs 12:11).
Want to accomplish something great? «Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed» (Proverbs 15:22).
