Proverbs 1:21-22_Devotional


Proverbs 1:20-21_Devotional To reject wisdom and her counsel and reproof is to reject a submissive, obedient relationship with the Lord. It is a rejection of Him personally. It is a rejection of the gospel. It is a rejection of Christ's offer of salvation and His atoning death on Calvary. The urgent message of this passage is simply this: "Make the right choice!" The short answer to why pigs roll in the mud is that to pigs it feels good-they like it.When we see people sinning, covering their lives in the filth and muck of the world, we sometimes wonder why they choose that. The simple answer is that because of our fallen nature, sin is attractive. Even though it may stink, it feels good to the sin nature to be covered in sin. Though we have been given a new nature as Christians, we still have the flesh and old patterns and desires. Left unchecked, our flesh will draw us back to the mire of sin just as pigs are drawn to mud. To counter this effect, we have the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit.
