Proverbs (CEV) 10:8-13

If you have good sense,
    you will listen and obey;
    if all you do is talk,
    you will destroy yourself.
You will be safe,
    if you always do right,
    but you will get caught,
    if you are dishonest.
10 Deceit causes trouble,
    and foolish talk
    will bring you to ruin.[a]
11 The words of good people
    are a source of life,
    but evil hides behind
    the words of the wicked.

12 Hatred stirs up trouble;
    love overlooks the wrongs
    that others do.
13 If you have good sense,
    it will show when you speak.
    But if you are stupid,
you will be beaten
    with a stick.

Hebrews 12:1-6 (CEV)

A Large Crowd of Witnesses

12 Such a large crowd of witnesses is all around us! So we must get rid of everything that slows us down, especially the sin that just won’t let go. And we must be determined to run the race that is ahead of us. We must keep our eyes on Jesus, who leads us and makes our faith complete. He endured the shame of being nailed to a cross, because he knew that later on he would be glad he did. Now he is seated at the right side[a] of God’s throne! So keep your mind on Jesus, who put up with many insults from sinners. Then you won’t get discouraged and give up.

None of you have yet been hurt[b] in your battle against sin. But you have forgotten that the Scriptures say to God’s children,

“When the Lord punishes you,
    don’t make light of it,
and when he corrects you,
    don’t be discouraged.
The Lord corrects the people
    he loves
and disciplines those
    he calls his own.”
