Advice Without Counsel, plans go awry, but in the multitude of counselors they are established. Proverbs 15:22
Benevolent Honor the Lord with you possessions, and with the firstfruits of all your increase; So your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine. Proverbs 3:9-10
Contentment Better is a little with the fear of the Lord, than great treasure with trouble. Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a fatted calf with hatred. Proverbs 15:16-17
Diligence He who deals with a slack hand becomes poor, but the hand of the diligent makes one rich. He who gathers in summer is a wise son; but he who sleeps in harvest is a son who causes shame. Proverbs 10:4-5 
Encouragement As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27:17 
Fairness A false balance is an abomination to the Lord, but a just weight is His delight. Proverbs 11:1 
Guarded He who guards his mouth preserves his life, but he who opens wide his lips shall have destruction. Proverbs 13: 3 
Humility Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18 
Integrity A good name is to be chosen rather than riches, Loving favor rather than silver and gold. Proverbs 22:1 
Joyful Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, but a good word makes it glad. Proverbs 12:25 
Kind A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. Proverbs 15:1 
Listens The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but he who heeds counsel is wise. Proverbs 12:15 Moderation Do not overwork to be rich; because of your own understanding, cease. 
Proverbs 23:4 Neighborly Do not devise evil against your neighbor, for he dwells by you for safety�s sake. Proverbs 3:29
Observant Whoever loves instruction loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid. Proverbs 12:1 
Perspective The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but deliverance is of the Lord. Proverbs 21:31 
Quiet He who reproves a scoffer gets shame for himself and he who rebukes a wicked man gets himself a blemish. Proverbs 9:7 
Resolve Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh and strength to your bones. Proverbs 3:5-8 
Sincerity In all labor there is profit, but idle chatter leads only to poverty. Proverbs 14:23 Trustworthy A talebearer reveals secrets, but he who is of a faithful spirit conceals a matter. Proverbs 11:13 
Understanding A righteous man regards the life of his animal, but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel. Proverbs 12:10
Virtuous Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who deal truthfully are His delight. Proverbs 12:22 
Wisdom The simple believes every word, but the prudent man considers well his steps, a wise man fears and departs from evil, but a fool rages is self-confident. Proverbs 14:15-16

Zealous The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life and he who wins souls is wise. Proverbs 11:30
