Proverb for the Day - Flee or be Bold

Today is Wednesday, April 28, 2010. I just finished reading Proverbs 28 for today in the New King James Version of the Bible. Today verse one jumped out at me, so here I am talking about Proverbs 28:1.

It says that if a person does underhanded things (wicked), they will always we looking over their shoulder in fear of being caught even if there is no one there to catch them. Yuk, what a way to live.

The flip side of this proverb is that a person who lives in an honest way (righteous) that they will be bold, bold as a lion.

First of all, true righteousness is not something we do on our own. True righteousness comes from relationship with God. It is His righteousness and we only get it when He lives in us and guides us through life. This is such a peaceful restful place to be. It makes us as bold as a lion. We don't have to take from others to be provided for. We never have to look over our shoulder or be afraid. We just are guided into goodness because God loves us.
