June 10, 2022

The Proverbs are full of wisdom and give us insight into how we should live, but is it possible some are prophecies spelled out in today’s language? Look at the following verses:

The highway of the upright turns aside from evil; whoever guards his way preserves his life.

Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.

It is better to be of a lowly spirit with the poor than to divide the spoil with the proud. Proverbs 16:17-19

The month of June spans a portion of the spring and summer; then comes the fall. You can’t help but notice the signs of “pride” plastered everywhere. Pride flaunted without disguise. I would not want to be in the shoes of these prideful people when Jesus returns. They may walk around mighty and arrogant now, but this attitude will be short-lived and their destruction sure; I expect that their fall is near. Do not be a part of it! They know what they are doing is wrong, otherwise they wouldn’t try to get you to agree that their lifestyle is acceptable in the eyes of God. They want his approval and yours.
