Just a few to pick from then! You would do much better to ask this question of one particular book of the Bible rather than vaguely referring to the whole collection of books that lie in the Bible. One of my favourite books that gives lots of earthy wisdom is Proverbs, which contain great and sometimes hilarioius aphorisms. My favourite is as follows:

Like a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his folly.

Basically, learn from your mistakes!

Some lessons are basically how to treat people, and how live your life spiritually well, if you believe in that particular religion in the first place. Most of that religious work has lessons for how to live better and how to live well free from stress and other impositions.

Speak out to God, whether others listen or not.

Wondering how you should feel about the sin you see around you? Sorry, that's how! God notices those who are genuinely sorry about sin.

When others are pulling you in different direction, urging you to follow them remeber my promise. I will give you an undivided heart, a focus and pupose that will not lead you astray.
