Daily Wisdom 233: Proverbs 11:16

Proverbs 11:16 (NKJV) — 16 A gracious woman retains honor, But ruthless men retain riches.

Honor or riches? A gracious woman (one who is full of grace) will never be dishonored. She will also bring honor to her husband (Proverbs 31:11-12).

On the other hand, ruthless (i.e., terrible and violent) men retain riches. Of course, honor is more valuable than riches.

Proverbs 22:1 (NKJV) — 1 A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, Loving favor rather than silver and gold.
