Wicked Devices Will He Condemn

Proverbs 12:2

“A good man obtaineth favour of the LORD: but a man of wicked devices will he condemn.”

There is a vast difference between the experiences of a good person and one who devises wicked deeds. The one who devises wicked deeds will never receive the LORD’s favour which is reserved only for those who do good deeds. While the LORD’s favour will be upon the good man, His condemnation or curse will be upon the wicked man.

The Lord will never approve of the wicked doers. The LORD will surely act against those who continue in their sinful deeds without repentance. Nobody who plans to continue in sin should think that God will not condemn him. It is utter foolishness to think that those who are determined to pursue evil ideas will go unpunished!

However, the LORD will surely extend His approval and favour to those who repent from their sins, and who seek to do God’s good will. So, avoid every evil way, and pursue holiness.
