• Go to the Ant Devotional

    Proverbs 6:6–11

    Christians from the Reformed tradition believe that God has revealed Himself in Scripture and in creation. We cannot obtain saving knowledge of the Lord by observing the world around us; for that, we must have the special revelation given to us in Scripture. However, there is much we can learn from the natural world, including the value and virtue of hard work. Let us do what we can to impart this lesson in our churches, our families, and our communities. View Resource

  • Three Things the Lord Hates Devotional

    Proverbs 6:16–17

    As we go through this list in Proverbs 6:16–19 of the things that God hates, it will become clear that all of us are guilty of at least one of the sins that are enumerated. Think on that for a moment. All of us have done things that the Lord absolutely hates. Perhaps if we would remember that there are some actions that God detests, we would do them less frequently. Let us take care to know what the Lord hates so that we might be encouraged not to sin against Him. View Resource

  • Four More Things God Detests Devotional

    Proverbs 6:18–19

    Jesus tells us that all sin begins within (Matt. 15:10–20). The heart that devises wicked plans and the eagerness to run swiftly to evil reflect inward corruption that the Lord hates just as much—if not more—than sinister actions. Sin is not merely an outward phenomenon; rather, it is something deeply rooted in us. Thus, we should be praying that the Lord would cleanse us of this inward corruption, and we should ask Him for the strength to fight it. View Resource

  • How Far Is Too Far? Devotional

    Proverbs 6:27–28

    Some of us who are married may think it innocuous to flirt with an attractive co-worker, but we ought know an “innocent” cup of coffee or conversation can be the first step towards disaster. We might think it okay to spend hours alone with somebody of the opposite sex, but we ought to know doing so on a regular basis might set us up for a fall. Whether single or married, we must use wisdom in our relationships with the opposite sex. View Resource

  • Fire Safety Devotional

    Proverbs 6:27–29

    All too often, we think that we can entertain temptation or get too close to a particular sin and not fall into transgression. That shows us just how important it is for us to be reminded of Proverbs 6:27–29. Knowing our own weaknesses, we should avoid those occasions, people, or places where we might find ourselves playing with the fire of sin. If we do not do that, we will set ourselves up for failure and compromise the holiness to which God calls us. View Resource
