Proverbs for Living - 11

Proverbs 11: 3 (CSV) - "The integrity of the upright guides them, but the perversity of the treacherous destroys them."

This chapter of the Proverbs is laden with topics to guide and direct us. There are several key verses in this chapter:
  • Verse 14 -"Without guidance, a people will fall, but with many counselors there is deliverance."
  • Verse 19 - "Genuine righteousness leads to life, but pursuing evil leads to death."
  • Verses 24-25 - "One person gives freely, yet gains more; another withholds what is right, only to become poor. A generous person will be enriched, and the one who gives a drink of water will receive water."
  • Verse 30 - "The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and a wise person captivates people."
Also, as you muse over this chapter today, consider these vital topics:
  • Verses 1-8 - If we are going to be successful in serving God, we must know the spiritual attribute of honesty.
  • Verses 9-13 - We all have influence, either good or bad. We are to use our influence for the glory of God.
  • Verse 14 - We have a responsibility to be leaders in our sphere of influence.
  • Verses 15-21 - We are to show mercy in our relationships with others.
  • Verses 22-23 - If we want to be successful, we must live by God's moral principles.
  • Verses 24-28 - We are responsible to use wisely all that God has placed in our hands.
  • Verses 29-31 - We are responsible for sharing the message of the Gospel with those we come in contact with. 
Today. as we read this chapter, there is much to take away from it and use. Seek God for what He wants you to apply today to your life.

Prayer: Father, there is so much in this precious chapter that I need to apply in my life. I can't do it myself. Come, take control and lead me into the wisdom of living my life the way that You designed me to live. I want to be in Your Will all the time. Guide me and direct me. Amen.
