What do you do when you do something mean or wrong?

What standard do you live by? When you do something wrong, do you admit it or fess up? Who do you tell? Proverbs is a book in the Bible that could help you find answers to situations you might be facing. As a collection of wisdom, Proverbs is a book worth reading, and it will help you in life.

The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel:
For learning wisdom and discipline;
for understanding insightful sayings;
For receiving prudent instruction
in righteousness, justice, and integrity;
For teaching shrewdness to the inexperienced,
knowledge and discretion to a young man— (Prov 1:1-4, CSB)

1. Carefully observe what Proverbs says about confessing. What do you see? What does it mean? How do you apply this?

The one who conceals his sins
will not prosper,
but whoever confesses and renounces them
will find mercy. (Prov 28:13, CSB)
