It's Day 51 and we're in Proverbs 21.
Remember as we read through Proverbs that a proverb is a general truth - the way things normally are. That means that what's being said may not be always happen. For instance, the proverbs about "train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it" doesn't mean that every single child raised in a Christian home will come back to the Lord - it just means that's what generally happens.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 2 - It's not enough to have good actions. I need to have good motives as well.
- Verse 14 - I don't think we should presume that the writer here is condoning bribery, but rather that he's simply describing the way the world often works.
