11 A false balance is an abomination to the Lord,
but a just weight is his delight.
2 When pride comes, then comes disgrace,
but with the humble is wisdom.
3 The integrity of the upright guides them,
but the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them.
4 Riches do not profit in the day of wrath,
but righteousness delivers from death.
5 The righteousness of the blameless keeps his way straight,
but the wicked falls by his own wickedness.
6 The righteousness of the upright delivers them,
but the treacherous are taken captive by their lust.
7 When the wicked dies, his hope will perish,
and the expectation of wealth perishes too.
8 The righteous is delivered from trouble,
and the wicked walks into it instead.
9 With his mouth the godless man would destroy his neighbor,
but by knowledge the righteous are delivered.
10 When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices,
and when the wicked perish there are shouts of gladness.
11 By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted,
but by the mouth of the wicked it is overthrown.
12 Whoever belittles his neighbor lacks sense,
but a man of understanding remains silent.
13 Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets,
but he who is trustworthy in spirit keeps a thing covered.
14 Where there is no guidance, a people falls,
but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.
15 Whoever puts up security for a stranger will surely suffer harm,
but he who hates striking hands in pledge is secure.
16 A gracious woman gets honor,
and violent men get riches.
17 A man who is kind benefits himself,
but a cruel man hurts himself.
18 The wicked earns deceptive wages,
but one who sows righteousness gets a sure reward.
19 Whoever is steadfast in righteousness will live,
but he who pursues evil will die.
20 Those of crooked heart are an abomination to the Lord,
but those of blameless ways are his delight.
21 Be assured, an evil person will not go unpunished,
but the offspring of the righteous will be delivered.
22 Like a gold ring in a pig's snout
is a beautiful woman without discretion.
23 The desire of the righteous ends only in good,
the expectation of the wicked in wrath.
24 One gives freely, yet grows all the richer;
another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.
25 Whoever brings blessing will be enriched,
and one who waters will himself be watered.
26 The people curse him who holds back grain,
but a blessing is on the head of him who sells it.
27 Whoever diligently seeks good seeks favor,
but evil comes to him who searches for it.
28 Whoever trusts in his riches will fall,
but the righteous will flourish like a green leaf.
29 Whoever troubles his own household will inherit the wind,
and the fool will be servant to the wise of heart.
30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life,
and whoever captures souls is wise.
31 If the righteous is repaid on earth,
how much more the wicked and the sinner!

So far we have discussed the initiative, types of meet-ups like the should-to-shoulder activities or face-to-face meet-up, and then inviting with purpose using 4 questions. Today we are going to talk about what we want to get out of the time.
And the answer is this a single tip. One tip you can take away from the time.
Incidentally, when we’re in the meet-up we are going to something of value from them. In some cases, it will be many things but we will always take something away. We are looking for gold in this relationship. I called looking for a tip we want to take a tip away from our time.

It might even be good if you could re-iterate it to the guy that you’re hanging out with as the temp that you’re going to take away is it be a good practice and going public with something that we’ve learned and then thanking them for that time.
A false balance is an abomination to the Lord,
but a just weight is his delight.—Proverbs 11:1
We long for justice. Want proof? Pay attention when someone:
- Cuts you off in traffic.
- Takes credit for something you did.
- Yells at you for circumstantial issues out of your control.
- Disregards the agreed-upon rules.
In these moments, a justice trigger alerts each of us. But these moments of injustice are not only irritating, but they're also infuriating when they stem from a false balance—which indicates an intent to deceive.
On the other hand, a just weight is lifegiving to humanity and delightful to God.—which indicates an intent to not deceive.
DO THIS: Instead of unfairly weighing the balances of justice in your favor determine to be truthful and bring attention to justice which is the delight of God.
PRAY THIS: God, may I be justice in all I think, say, and do today.
