Discussion for Proverbs 9:13

  • Brianna for verse 13
    "This scripture goes out to all my hood chicks"

    No. But I definitely find this scripture a good one to share. The whole attitude, teeth sucking, head swinging, finger pointing, barking these young girls, and hey even older women, do is considered stupid from the Bible's standpoint!

    Seriously, God expects women to act like LADIES! Think before you speak! Be calm and seek to find solutions, not arguments.
