Proverbs 28 “Justice and Wisdom”

If You Desert God’s Law

The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.  For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof: but by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged.  A poor man that oppresseth the poor is like a sweeping rain which leaveth no food.  They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.

Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the Lord understand all things.  Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.  Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father.  He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.

He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.  Whoso causeth the righteous to go astray in an evil way, he shall fall himself into his own pit: but the upright shall have good things in possession.  The rich man is wise in his own conceit; but the poor that hath understanding searcheth him out.  When righteous men do rejoice, there is great glory: but when the wicked rise, a man is hidden.

 He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.  Happy is the man that feareth alway: but he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into mischief.  As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people.  The prince that wanteth understanding is also a great oppressor: but he that hateth covetousness shall prolong his days.  A man that doeth violence to the blood of any person shall flee to the pit; let no man stay him.  Whoso walketh uprightly shall be saved: but he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once.

Doing Great Harm in Seemingly Harmless Ways

He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough.  A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.  To have respect of persons is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress.  He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.

He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue.  Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith, It is no transgression; the same is the companion of a destroyer.  He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: but he that putteth his trust in the Lord shall be made fat.  He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.  He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse.  When the wicked rise, men hide themselves: but when they perish, the righteous increase.

Have a high moral that will help you to live a life that is a life that has all that wisdom GOD wants you to have and more.  One character as a Christian is a character of justice to others.  GOD does not show indifference to his children, he treats them the same therefore we have to show the same character as well.  Don’t look at the foundation look at the justice.

Stop praying for forgiveness and go right back to the same thing once you finish praying.  If you do, that will only delay what you are praying to GOD for.  He wants to give you what you ask for however he wants your obedience to following and adhering to his word.

Don’t try to hide your sin as GOD sees it all.  Remember he is the only one who can judge you so don’t worry about what others may say about you, it’s your life and you have to live it your way even if you are doing a lot of sinning but it is still your life and when you realize that you are headed for destruction, GOD will be there for you when you ask him to forgive you. 

Once you are ready to walk with GOD, do your best to walk in wisdom.  Walking in wisdom is very safe; GOD will never let you down.  He wants the best for you, seek him.  GOD wants you to be know what you want, fight for what you want, and just go after it and be all you can.

There are a lot of things that GOD wants us to do, one thing is to identify with the needy and not look over them.  If you open your eyes to the poor you will be blessed.  Help GOD supply needs to those that are in need.  There is a time that you may need and you would want someone to be there for you so be mindful that we all are people that at some point may be in need.   GOD truly blesses those that help the needy for the right reason.

Do not leave any room in your life to be questionable leave it the way that GOD wants it to be left.  Remember to pray, read, pray again, and meditate on the word.  If you are truly uncertain about anything in your life, seek GOD he’s right there for you.  GOD Bless You Much Love
