Daily Bible Reading “The Wise Listen to Advice” (Proverbs 12:12-16)

Proverbs 12 The Wise Listen to AdviceThe Wise Listen to Advice

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 12:12-16. In this Scripture we are reminded that the wicked desire the snare of evil men: but the root of the righteous yields fruit.

We can choose the way of the wicked and end up in some sort of trouble or we can choose the way of the righteous and bare good fruit.

The wicked is caught by the transgression of his lips: but the righteous will depart from trouble.

A person will be satisfied with good by the fruit of their mouth: and the dealing of a person’s hands will be returned to to them.

The way the foolish seems right to them: but the wise listen to advice.

A fool’s anger is always known: but a cautious man conceals shame.

Have you ever known someone who refused to listen to any advice that you tried to give them? They want to do things their own way even though you warn them that they are going to get in trouble. After a while you have to let people learn for themselves if they refuse to take advice or instruction.

Daily Bible Reading “How Will You Live” (Proverbs 11:7-15)

Proverbs 11 way-of-life-imageHow Will You Live

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 11:7-15. In this Scripture we are reminded that when a wicked person dies their hope and expectation perishes with them. But, when a righteous person dies they have the hope of eternal life. The way you live in this life and the choices you make will determine your future. How will you live?

The righteous person is delivered from trouble, and the wicked ones come instead.

A hypocrite destroys their neighbor with their mouth: but the righteous are delivered through knowledge.

The city celebrates when things go well for those who are righteous: and it rejoices when wicked people perish.

The city is exalted by the blessing of the upright: but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.

Those who lack wisdom despise their neighbor: but a person of understanding holds their peace.

A gossiper reveals secrets: but those who have a faithful spirit conceal the matter. Have you ever known someone that you couldn’t tell anything to unless you wanted it to be advertised to the whole world?

The people fall where there is no counsel: but in a multitude of counselors there is safety. Sometimes we need advice. We should seek good counsel.

One who puts up security for a stranger will suffer because of it: but those who refuse to do so are safe. Have you ever signed a note for someone and the deal went bad because they were unable to pay?

Which one of these groups of people best describes you? How will you live? Have you chosen to live the way of the world or have you chosen to accept Jesus as your Savior and live the way of the righteous?

Jesus loves you and He is willing and waiting to forgive you of your sins and cleanse your heart of all unrighteousness. He can make your heart clean and pure. All you have to do is repent of your sins and ask Him to forgive you and come into your heart and life today.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Proverbs 11:7-15

7 When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish: and the hope of unjust men perisheth.
8 The righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked cometh in his stead.
9 An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.
10 When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth: and when the wicked perish, there is shouting.
11 By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.
12 He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbour: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace.
13 A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.
14 Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.
15 He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it: and he that hateth suretiship is sure.

 

Things to think about:

  • What is the difference between a wicked person’s death and a righteous person’s death?
  • What is the difference between the way a wicked person treats their neighbor and the way a righteous person treats their neighbor?
  • To whom should you tell a secret?
  • Why should you never sign a note for a stranger?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we read this Scripture in the book of Proverbs we learn about the people we can trust and the people whom we can’t trust. Help us to be wise in our dealings with others. Help us to set good examples as to the way believers should interact with other people. Forgive us of any way we have failed You. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
