Verse of the Day, January 7, 2021
Proverbs 18:12 KJV “Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.”
A word from GOD today reminds us that a fool has no delight in understanding (departing from evil, see Job 28:28). The wicked only comes with contempt and with ignominy reproach.
They feel they are better than others; this is why it isn’t a good thing to accept them or operate as they do. The mind of a man is haughty right before his destruction.
He does not believe GOD, and he will not receive correction; destruction is imminent. But with the humble, they are prepared to be honored; praise ye the LORD.
Praise the Most-High today!
