Verse of the Day – Proverbs 10:6
Blessings crown the head of the righteous, but violence overwhelms the mouth of the wicked. — Proverbs 10:6
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
Jesus told Peter, “Those who live by the sword will die by the sword.” Violence begets violence and rarely does a violent person not have to taste the bitter repayment of violence. God’s Wise Man is saying essentially the same thing in this verse, but with one key addition. Blessings come to the person who is righteous. We reap what we sow!
Holy God, please bless me with righteousness — not just by your grace and mercy, but by the transformation of my heart by your Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ name I ask it. Amen.
