This morning as I was reading in Proverbs, these verses really stood out to me. First, who are the good people? Solomon talks in this chapter about being wise, being honest, accepting correction, not being lazy, and above all, having respect for the Lord. Here are just some of the things we can see as benefits for good people:
• They will have rich blessings
• They will be rewarded with life
• Their words will help others
• They will be safe
• They will know the right things to say.
First, Lord, I want to always have respect for You so that I may be wise, and be a good person. I want to learn to say the right things at the right time. You have rewarded me with life, a good and blessed life, and I am so thankful! I love You. AMEN
Shout to the Lord, and serve Him with joy. Know that He is God. He made us, and we belong to Him as His people. Psalm 100
6 Good people will have rich blessings, but the wicked will be overwhelmed by violence. 7 Good people will be remembered as a blessing, but evil people will soon be forgotten. (Proverbs 10:6-7 NCV)
16 Good people are rewarded with life, but evil people are paid with punishment. (Proverbs 10:16 NCV)
21 Good people’s words will help many others, but fools will die because they don’t have wisdom. (Proverbs 10:21 NCV)
30 Good people will always be safe, but evil people will not remain in the land. 31 A good person says wise things, but a liar’s tongue will be stopped. 32 Good people know the right thing to say, but evil people only tell lies. (Proverbs 10:30-32 NCV)
