10 Relationship Tips from the Book of Proverbs

When it comes to maintaining healthy relationships, it can be tough to know how to be supportive, and when to just keep your mouth shut. Life is often a balancing act, so take note of these tips on relationships taken from the Book of Proverbs.


1
"Wisdom yields patience; it is to one's glory to overlook an offense." 19:1

Forgive frequently.


2
"A quarrelsome spouse is like the constant dripping of a leaky roof. " 19:3

You won't die if you don't get the last word.


3
"If you play the fool and exalt yourself, or if you plan evil, clap your hand over your mouth!" 30:32

Never pass up a perfect opportunity to say nothing.


4
"Fools give full vent to their rage, but the wise bring calm in the end." 29:11

It feels good to vent, but only to you. Don't say things you will only have to apologize for later.


5
"Those who conceal their sins do not prosper, but those who confess and renounce them find mercy." 28:13

Honesty about important things is imperative. Honesty about whether he or she looks good in those pants is not.


6
"As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another." 27:17

Stay interesting. Try not to talk about work all the time.


7
"Like clouds and wind without rain is one who boasts of gifts never given." 25:14

Don't make promises you can't keep.


8
"Better is open rebuke than hidden love." 27-5

Show affection.  Make it a habit.


9
"Like one who grabs a stray dog by the ears is someone who rushes into a quarrel not their own." 26-17

Don't pick fights.


10
"To answer before listening – that is folly and shame." 18-3

You may have heard it before.  Listen anyway.
