June 2; Character

Proverbs 19-21

Rich, poor. Honest, dishonest. Righteous, wicked. Humble, proud. Wise foolish. Lazy, industrious. God has a lot to say to us through Solomon about these characteristics. What we assume is success, or a good heart in someone, may only be a smokescreen for a sinful heart. And just because we see someone who seems to have it all together, it doesn’t mean that person isn’t going to face serious consequences for sin.

“All a man’s ways seem right to him, but the Lord weighs the heart.” (Proverbs 21:2)  Only you know if you truly love and fear God, if you’ve given that heart to Him by repenting of sin and accepting what Jesus died to give you.

I hope your character is above reproach. More than that – I pray your heart is.
