Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 10:23-26. Have you ever noticed how some people seem to enjoy doing evil things while others delight in wisdom? This Scripture tells us it is like a sport to a fool to do evil: but a person with understanding delights in wisdom. Have you noticed how much people who are wise seem to enjoy learning?
The fear of the wicked will overtake him: but the desire of the righteous will be granted.
Psalm 37:4 tells us, “Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
Like the storm passes, the wicked are swept away: but the righteous have an eternal foundation.
As believers, our foundation is firmly planted in the promises of God. We have the promise not only of life on this earth, but eternal life in heaven.
Sluggards are like vinegar to the mouth, and smoke in the eyes, to those who send them.
It is left up to each one of us to choose whether we will be wise or whether we will walk the treacherous path of the foolish. Which way do you choose to live your life?
Daily Bible Reading:
23 It is as sport to a fool to do mischief: but a man of understanding hath wisdom.
24 The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him: but the desire of the righteous shall be granted.
25 As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more: but the righteous is an everlasting foundation.
26 As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to them that send him.
Things to think about:
- Why do some people seem to enjoy doing evil?
- How do those who are wicked respond to fear?
- Why do the righteous have an eternal foundation?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
As we read this Scripture and continue to learn the difference between righteous people and wicked people we can see that the major difference is their belief in You. Those who are believers are made righteous by Your Son. Help us to make You proud of the people we are becoming. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
