• The Flight of the Wicked Devotional

    Proverbs 28:1

    Numbers 32:23 says that our sin will find us out. We live in fear if we are in impenitent sin because we know the truth of this verse, namely, that we cannot hide our wickedness forever. The only solution to such fear is confession and repentance. Confessing our sins to one another puts fear and paranoia to flight because it brings our transgression out into the open, encouraging us to fight our sin and to take an honest stand for Christ as sinners saved by grace alone.

  • The Pursuit of Riches Devotional

    Proverbs 28:20

    Read Proverbs 30:7–11 and Matthew 6:9–13 and consider these two prayers in light of today’s lesson. Do your desires reflect those of Agur and of Christ? Are you satisfied with what God has given you? Do you covet when others have more? Do you pursue riches? Confess any covetousness you have or any ambition for wealth. View Resource

  • Walking in Wisdom Devotional

    Proverbs 28:26

    Because of the fall into sin, men and women are ever tempted to foolish self-reliance. They are prone to refuse to hear correction from the Lord and from wise people. If we would be wise, we must confess our foolishness to God, turn to Him in the name of Christ, and learn from His Word. We must also learn from those who have been walking with the Lord for a long time. Their example shows us what it means to walk in wisdom. View Resource

  • Generous Giving Devotional

    Proverbs 28:27

    Many pastors and teachers have suggested that we take a look at our checkbooks and bank statements for a true measure of where our trust lies. If we cannot find evidence of generous giving to the kingdom of God and those who are truly in need, we may be lacking the trust in the Lord that we profess. Let us strive to be generous with what we have, trusting in God to supply our every need. View Resource
