Here is a chapter of proverbs that contrast the wise and the fool:

Poverty isn’t always someone else’s fault.

God hates a liar.

Laziness reaps it’s own reward.

God rewards those who are generous to His causes.

Forgiveness to the unrepentant only encourages the same bad behavior.

Those who think they know it all are resistant to instruction.

A fool and his money are soon parted.

The knowledge and wisdom of Jehovah leads to satisfaction and peace.

A belligerent and contentious spouse is unbearable.

A government based on honor requires honorable citizens and rulers to survive.

Loyalty is a desirable trait.

It is better to live in poverty than to lie your way into wealth.

What’s in a man’s heart is revealed in his life.

Only God can change a man’s heart and life.
