• Envying Evil Men Devotional

    Proverbs 24:1–2

    Seeing the wicked succeed can be discouraging, especially when we are suffering for the sake of righteousness. Yet what we should never do, today’s passage tells us, is envy the wicked and their success. The success of the wicked is but temporary, and any suffering we endure for righteousness is temporary as well. In eternity to come, the wicked will receive their just reward, just as those who are righteous in Christ will be confirmed in glory forever. View Resource

  • Our All-Seeing God Devotional

    Proverbs 24:12

    God’s omniscience is a scary attribute for those who do not also know His grace. All too often, our sin goes unnoticed by others, but the Lord is always aware of it. Thankfully, however, if we are covered with the blood of Christ, we know that there is forgiveness even for the transgressions we commit in secret. We need only to confess and forsake our sins. Let us not try to hide sins from God, and let us never fail to repent when it is necessary to do so. View Resource

  • The Fall and Rise of the Righteous Devotional

    Proverbs 24:16

    Many commentators note that this passage can also be applied to the sins of the righteous person. Matthew Henry comments, “The just man falls, sometimes falls seven times perhaps, into sin, sins of infirmity, through the surprise of temptation; but he rises again by repentance, finds mercy with God, and regains his peace.” Those whom the Lord regards as righteous may fall into sin, and they may fall deeply, but they will eventually come to repentance.
