The Danger of the Devious

Today’s thought is the wise saying of Proverbs 14:2.

You may be faced with the opportunity on numerous occasions to be “devious” in one way or another today.   To be “devious” is to distort, to scheme, to twist or misrepresent.   Whether intentionally or not, such a person “despises” the God who is perfectly just and honest and holy.

Why not determine right now that in each conversation, in every situation, at every turn throughout the day, you will do everything in your power to “walk in uprightness”?   Be honest.   Be straightforward.   Abide in the truth.   Do that, and while others may not even notice, your Father will be proud of you once this day is done.
