venusian princess vs. martian warrior: epilogue

Each morning I try to read the chapter in Proverbs that corresponds to that day of the month. Here are some things I’ve found in the past few days:

An evil man is trapped by his sinful talk, but a righteous man escapes trouble.
~Proverbs 12:13

From the fruit of his lips a man is filled with good things as surely as the work of his hands rewards him.
~Proverbs 12:14

The way of a fool seems right to him, but a wise man listens to advice.
~ Proverbs 12:15

A prudent man keeps his knowledge to himself, but the heart of fools blurts out folly.
~ Proverbs 12:23

He who guards his lips guards his life, but he who speaks rashly will come to ruin.
~ Proverbs 13:3

Good understanding wins favor, but the way of the unfaithful is hard.
~Proverbs 13:15

There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.
~ Proverbs 14:12 (I read ahead to tomorrow’s chapter.)

Be blessed!

So basically, as long as the guy keeps his mouth shut, things are going to be ok. :-P

That is a good place to start. However, sometimes "a man has to do what a man has to do." There is a subtle balance or trade-off that is needed. For confirmation of this, just ask any suicide bomber.
