Proverbs 1:13-16 Flee From Evil People

Proverbs 1:13-16

13 We will find and take all kinds of precious possessions, We will fill our houses with spoil; 14 Throw in your lot with us [they insist]; We will all have one money bag [in common],” 15 My son, do not walk on the road with them; Keep your foot [far] away from their path, 16 For their feet run to evil, and they hurry to shed blood.

The need to belong is strong human emotion and it happens with all people in all walks of life. People of the same religion fellowship with each other, people who like to drink go to bars, prostitutes in whore houses and prisons are full of criminals. Anyone who ever been to public school, has seen how people of the same lifestyle hang together especially in the cafeteria at lunch time. The jocks eat at one table, the wealthy kids at one, the smarter kids at a table, and poor kids at one, and even the teachers and staff have a room. In high school I was a rebellious student and wore my rock n roll t-shirts and I generally sat with my friends. I was rebellious and simply didn’t care, so I would take my lunch tray and go sit down and eat with any group, sometimes the rich kids, jock or even with my black friends. There were usually no problems I got along with most people, except my teachers. As an adult generally people with the same skills have a common workplace and co-workers will feel like belonging to a group, and in the past when I lost a job I would miss my former co-workers. Ever since COVID-19 or the coronavirus , social-distances have caused hanging in groups not allowed, church services are not allowed, some places of employment  even bars and restaurants have no customers or people enjoying each other’s company. If you notice ever since the COVID-19, social distance has been broken by people who want to break the law, benefit themselves by looting department stores or destroying other places of employment or restaurants, even businesses owned by the same race of people they say they are oppressed by. If you noticed most of those groups of people were not wearing required masks and even so, the COVID-19 virus would spike the next day. So it makes common sense, that Proverbs 1:13-16 those who rush to take things that don’t belong to them or hurry to shed blood are evil. Evil depends on themselves to get anything and everything they want. Smashing and breaking windows to steal items happens better in groups. My friends, I am not your father, but if you are a child of God do as your heavenly Father says, don’t fellowship with foolish people who do evil things, even burn Bibles. Make the company you keep, edify you with the love of God and love for all His children and don’t steal what isn’t’ your or even kill anyone or even seek your own revenge. God bless you all, the Lord Jesus loves you and so do I. Samuel J Head

Micah 2:1-3 What sorrow awaits you who lie awake at night,   thinking up evil plans. You rise at dawn and hurry to carry them out,   simply because you have the power to do so. 2 When you want a piece of land,  you find a way to seize it. When you want someone’s house,   you take it by fraud and violence. You cheat a man of his property,   stealing his family’s inheritance.3 But this is what the Lord says: “I will reward your evil with evil;    you won’t be able to pull your neck out of the noose. You will no longer walk around proudly,  for it will be a terrible time.”
