Proverbs in 365 Devotions

Proverbs 1:14 throw in your lot among us; we will all have one purse”

One Purse

Daniel Castor

This statement from the wicked is all too true. But not in the way that these men expect. It's very true that  all of the wicked  will  all share the same prize.   While they are expecting great gain and easy wealth, that's not what is coming. They have everything planed out. They have plotted and schemed to make sure they get what they deserve, and they will! Beyond their evil intent they see rewards and great gain. But what really awaits them is death and destruction. We are all accountable for the choices we make and the motives we have. Solomon is warning his son of this truth. Solomon echoes this same line of thought in the book of Ecclesiastes

Ecclesiastes 12:14 For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil.
