Are you surprised how often honesty, pride and mercy come up in these Proverbs? You can almost sum up the whole book with these three words. I find it interesting that these words are honored by just about every person and culture but they seem to be fleeting from our world as a whole. White lies, deceit, selfishness and lust have seemed to rule the day. A proverb a day keeps the Devil away!
