Proverbs 25:19-21 The Passion Translation (TPT)
19 You can’t depend on an unreliable person
when you really need help.
It can be compared to biting down on an abscessed tooth
or walking with a sprained ankle.
20 When you sing a song of joy to someone suffering
in the deepest grief and heartache,
it can be compared to disrobing in the middle of a blizzard
or rubbing salt in a wound.
21 Is your enemy hungry? Buy him lunch.
Win him over with your kindness.
