Proverbs Day 11

Proverbs 13:21 Evil pursueth sinners: but to the righteous good shall be repayed.

Luke 6:38  Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

This is a verse of hope to me.  If we are good and obey the commands of the Lord, even when it is not the easy thing to do, we will be rewarded for our faithfulness.  We shall receive back what we have given out.  Think about that sentence.  If we give out unkind words, we receive unkind words.  Isn't that what normally happens when we allow our emotions to rule us and get in fights or spats with those we care about?  And when we're through we can't ever take those words back. 

I am daily amazed by all the wisdom that is held in the book of Proverbs!
