Proverbs and their meanings
A proverb is a saying, usually short, that expresses a general truth about life.Proverbs give advice, make an observation, or present a teaching in a succinct and memorable way.
believing has a core of unbelieving: Belief and unbelief are closely related, and sometimes you need to start from a position of skepticism to arrive at the truth.
charity is not a bone you throw to a dog but a bone you share with a dog: There should be more to charity than simply giving money or other material goods-it is better to establish a relationship with those in need and to work with them for the benefit of all concerned.
