(From Proverbs 15:1, Proverbs 15:18, Proverbs 16:28, Proverbs 16:27, Proverbs 6:12, Proverbs 8:13, Proverbs 4:24, Proverbs 19:1, Proverbs 28:6, Proverbs 20:7.)

Have you heard the expression, it’s not personal, it’s business?
But doesn’t everything involve dealing with each other?
How we conduct ourselves, whether competing, business, or pleasure,
Should always start with an attitude of caring for one another.

It’s not business, it’s personal,
Plan your words and deeds carefully.
Work hard but know doing right is what counts!
Conduct your interactions prayerfully.

Your speech has so much power, to shut down rage and anger,
Or stir it up, and separate dearest friends and closest brothers.
It’s wicked to speak perverse things or stir up trouble,
Swears, gossip, slander, dirty talk simply hurt one another.

It’s not business, it’s personal,
Plan your words and deeds carefully.
Work hard but know doing right is what counts!
Conduct your interactions prayerfully.

It’s better to be poor and have pure speech,
Than to have your wealth, and displease God above
With sinful ways, pride and hurtful words;
It’s better to get ahead with a heart of love.

It’s not business, it’s personal,
Plan your words and deeds carefully.
Work hard but know doing right is what counts!
Conduct your interactions prayerfully.
Conduct your interactions prayerfully.
