Daily Bible Reading “Beware of Wicked People” (Proverbs 6:12-15)

Beware of Wicked People

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 6:12-15. In this Scripture, 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.

Wicked people maliciously wink their eyes, make motions with their feet, and make gestures with their 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 in their hearts. They constantly devise mischief and cause trouble.

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.”

The wicked will eventually get their just rewards. The outcome for these kind of people is misfortune which comes upon them quickly. They will be suddenly 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? Solomon warns us about these kind of people.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Proverbs 6:12-15

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.

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.
