Grow-Your-Own Proverbs

Here’s a sampling of my Life Group’s home-grown proverbs. Below those, is the prompt you can use if you’d like to write some of your own.

  • He who talks but never listens will soon be talking to himself.
  • Your thoughts, when written out, will live beyond your years.
  • A mother’s strong words spoken in love will push you up.
  • The love of a father shapes his child’s heart.
  • A creative heart is a well-spring of God’s love.
  • A fool only understands more foolishness.
  • A lazy person sees conspiracies everywhere to justify his idleness.
  • A timely, sincere apology heals two hearts.
  • Good motives do not expunge evil deeds.

Prompt: List 3 people who’ve positively influenced you, 3 who are/were thorns in your side and then list 3 pivotal decisions you’ve made in your life. Write your own proverbs inspired by those people and your decisions.
