A Journey through Proverbs – Proverbs 11:10-11

January 11, 2014

Proverbs 11:10-11When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices; and when the wicked perish, there is jubilation. By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted, but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.

There are many difficult sayings in Proverbs, and today’s passage is no exception. But what is clear to me is that we are called to live in community with one another, and we are to understand that our success is tied to our ability to work together with one another in ways that build us up.

Prayer: Loving God, help us to live cooperatively with one another in ways that build up your kingdom. Amen.
