Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 10:9-17. Those who walk in integrity walk securely: but those who choose to walk the path of crookedness will be known for their ways.
Those who wink the eye cause pain: but a boastful fool will fall.
The mouth of a righteous person is a source of life: but violence comes from the mouth of the wicked.
Hatred stirs up contention: but love covers all sins.
Wisdom is found in the mouth of those who have understanding: but a rod is for the back of those who lack understanding.
Wise people treasure knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is close to ruin.
The rich person’s wealth is their strength: but the destruction of the poor is their poverty.
The labor of the righteous leads to life: but the fruit of the wicked to sin.
Those on the path of life give heed to instruction: but those who refuse correction are led astray.
We have to choose which path of life we will travel. The choices and decisions we make every day determine our path of life and our destiny.
I’m sure you know people who walk on the righteous path and some who travel on the foolish path. Think about how their lives differ. Which path have you chosen?
Daily Bible Reading:
9 He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known.
10 He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow: but a prating fool shall fall.
11 The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
12 Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.
13 In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding.
14 Wise men lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.
15 The rich man’s wealth is his strong city: the destruction of the poor is their poverty.
16 The labour of the righteous tendeth to life: the fruit of the wicked to sin.
17 He is in the way of life that keepeth instruction: but he that refuseth reproof erreth.
Things to think about:
- What does the ways of the righteous person lead to?
- What does the ways of the foolish lead to?
- Which path of life have you chosen and why?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
As we read this Scripture in Proverbs we see some of the differences of those who choose the righteous path and those who choose the foolish path. Help us to make right choices every day of our life. Help us to always choose to walk on the righteous path. Help us not to make foolish decisions. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
