Thinking Of Ways To Get Into Trouble
July 10, 2024

DAILY PROVERB:

Proverbs 16:29-31
A violent man enticeth his neighbour, and leaded him into the way that is not good. He shutteth his eyes to devise froward things: moving his lips he bringeth evil to pass. The hoary head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness.

OUTLOOK ON THE IN BOOK:

    When I was younger, I used to get into trouble. I know, those of you who know me might find that hard to believe, but it’s true. A teacher once said, “Son, I think you just sit around and try to think up ways to get yourself into trouble.” Well, I did not think that was what I was doing at the time, but looking back, I can now see where I might have been doing exactly that.

    The Bible warns of people who never grow up or grow out of this way of life. They are always trying to beat the system. Some of them may become hooked on gambling, some are always looking for a “get-rich-quick” scheme, while others become intoxicated by the idea of power over others. They are always trying to get people on their side for one thing or another.

    In the church, within the family of God, there should not be sides taken, nor should such activity be found. We should all be on God’s side, and on a mission to reach the lost for Christ.

THE WORD WALKING IN ME:

    Our verses today say, “He shutteth his eyes to devise froward things.” That refers to people who spend their time thinking of how they might get back at someone, get even, or get around the system. What a terrible waste of our time here on earth. Instead of spending our days thinking of ways to avoid rules or authorities, why not spend it glorifying God? Today, let’s draw closer to Him.

Honestly, how are you spending your time?

IF YOU ARE JOURNALING:

Ask yourself, what are MY THOUGHTS concerning this Passage, and todays Devotion?

Do I find within this reading a CHALLENGE for my life?

What are one or two things I WILL DO today or this week to accept that CHALLENGE?
