Daily In The Word – February 11 – Watch Where You Walk

Date: 12 Feb 2018 Comments: 0

Now for the second thought from my lesson. I know that I have been talking a lot about verses from Proverbs, but so many great things can be found there. I have also talked about how I used the adage ‘If you lay down with dogs, you will wake up with fleas’ to explain to my daughter how other bad habits can impact us. Along that same vein, we must ask ourselves, what kinds of activities do we seek in our lives? For instance, if a man is a drunkard, he should probably not be in a bar. Likewise, if a man is obsessed with online pornography, he should be kept off the internet. If we seek out these negative and self-destructive activities, they will do incredible damage. So you need to ask yourself, do you seek things that are good and right? Or do you look for bad things? The Proverbs has a great statement that is so true… “If you search for good, you will find favor; but if you search for evil, it will find you!” (Proverbs 11:27, NLT). The more we engage ourselves in positive and good behavior, the higher chance we will learn to see the good in people. But when you make a bad choice or do something evil, the situation can go from bad to worse very quickly. Be careful what you seek!
