Proverbs in 365 Devotions

Proverbs 18:9 Whoever is slack in his work is a brother to him who destroys.

Who Is Your Brother?

R Aylor

Who then is your brother, metaphorically speaking?
Who do you favor? Who are you creeping?
Who is your spouse, Where are you sleeping?
What makes you smile? With whom are you weeping?

If in life you show little production

You take after your older brother destruction
Or maybe you work to be selfishly wealthy

While your sister’s obsessed to be pretty and healthy

With whom do you share the same style of walk

The same inflections in how you talk
Outside we may seem full of skizms

But inside have similar mannerisms

If you walk with the wise
that shows what you’ll be
But what if you prefer hanging
with those who don’t believe
You like how they speak, what they watch on tv
When you look in the mirror then that's what you’ll see

So who is your brother, your closest kinship?
Jesus said: “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and do it.”
