Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 6:12-15. Solomon warns his son about people who are wicked. He wants them to be aware that there are these kinds of people in the world. He wants them to be on guard against the evil and wicked plans that they devise.
The first thing he warns them about is that naughty, wicked men, walk around with a deceitful mouth.They tell lies at every turn.
Sometimes people who were raised in Christian homes and have never experienced the wicked people of this world think that they can trust everybody. We need to teach our children that not everybody was raised like them and not everybody was taught right from wrong.
They maliciously wink with their eyes, motions with his feet, and gestures with his fingers.
In Proverbs 35:19 David says, “Do not let those gloat over me who are my enemies without cause; do not let those who hate me without reason maliciously wink the eye.”
Wicked people are perverse is in their hearts. They constantly devise mischief and sow strife.
Micah 2:1 tells us, “Woe to those who plan iniquity, to those who plot evil on their beds! At morning’s light they carry it out because it is in their power to do it.”
They will get their just rewards. The outcome for these kind of people is misfortune which comes quickly. They will suddenly be destroyed because of their evil ways.
Do you know anyone who would rather lie than tell the truth any day?
Have you ever known someone who sits around thinking about what evil thing they can do next?
Daily Bible Reading:
12 A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth.
13 He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers;
14 Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he soweth discord.
15 Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.
Things to think about:
- What are some of the characteristics of the wicked that Solomon mentions in this Scripture?
- Why should we be aware of these things?
- How can we guard against the wickedness of evil people?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
As we read this Scripture in Proverbs we see where Solomon warns his sons about wicked people. He tells us ways to identify these kinds of people. Help us to be aware and be on guard against those who would devise evil against us. Protect us from every evil work and help us to be what you would have us be. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
