The verse of the day is Proverbs 13:6
“Righteousness guards one who walks in integrity, but wickedness overthrows the sinner.”
Righteousness Guards
Wickedness Overthrows.
There is protection in boundaries.
This world seems to have less and less respect for Godly boundaries. Most people walk all over the boundaries that are put before us by God in his word. They are easier seen as metaphors rather than hard and fast rules.
Have you noticed, folks who routinely ignore boundaries tend to be surprised when bad things happen to them? They have difficulty learning from their mistakes because they don’t understand there are always consequences for bad choices, sin, or as some would say, “folly.”
When we walk in integrity, within God’s boundaries, we are guarded by righteousness. And that’s a good thing.
Let’s walk in integrity today!
Question: Has there been an instance in your life where you were protected by righteousness?
