Proverbs 18:13-15; 23-24

13. He who answers before listening-- that is his folly and his shame.
14. A man's spirit sustains him in sickness, but a crushed spirit who can bear?
15. The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge; the ears of the wise seek it out.

23. A poor man pleads for mercy, but a rich man answers harshly.
24. A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Revelation 3:19-22

19. Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent.
20. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.
21. To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne.
22. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."
