The words of the wicked kill;

    the speech of the upright saves.

7 Wicked people fall to pieces—there’s nothing to them;

    the homes of good people hold together.

8 A person who talks sense is honored;

    airheads are held in contempt.

9 Better to be ordinary and work for a living

    than act important and starve in the process.

10 Good people are good to their animals;

    the “good-hearted” bad people kick and abuse them.

-Proverbs 12:6-10 The Message

6 The words of the wicked lie in wait for blood,

    but the mouth of the upright delivers them.

7 The wicked are overthrown and are no more,

    but the house of the righteous will stand.

8 A man is commended according to his good sense,

    but one of twisted mind is despised.

9 Better to be lowly and have a servant

    than to play the great man and lack bread.

10 Whoever is righteous has regard for the life of his beast,

    but the mercy of the wicked is cruel.

Verse 9 study: The practical world counts standard of living than a touchy sense of humor.

Verse 10 study: In the era Proverbs was written, it was rare for a man to care sensitively for the welfare of animals. But, even a wicked man, even when he is sensitive, is still cruel to human beings.

My name is Darren. I started sharing devotions in June 2019. As one of the ministry leaders at my church. One reason why I started devotions is because of the lack of inspiration and motivation in our lives. It is hard to be encouraged with a lot of negativity going around. I invite you to be encouraged by the word of God. Our struggles can be personal, at the workplace, and the lack of community in our lives. When we go through hard times, we need the word of God. Please read them and be encouraged. I also started a podcast talking about racism and discrimination. Please take a moment to check that out as well. Afternoon Coffee Break with Darren Watts.
