Righteous Style

Below is the daily Bible reading I am doing for the West Side Church. Please feel free to follow along.

I did not manage my time well yesterday, and failed to do the Bible reading. Please forgive me for my negligence.

There is an interesting theme in today’s reading. (Proverbs 10). The theme that I saw was the difference between the righteous and the wicked. Some of the characteristics of the righteous are: a hard worker, a wise son, speak nourishing words, integrity, joy, and wisdom. Some of the characteristics of the wicked are: ill gotten treasures, lazy, chattering fool, violence, poverty, and slanderous.

I love what Solomon writes when he says “What the wicked dreads will overtake him; what the righteous desires will be granted” “The fear of the Lord adds length to life, but the years of the wicked are cut short.” These are some powerful verses of God’s holy word. What side would place yourself on? Do you live by these powerful words?
