Rescue those being led to death

Reading:  Do not envy the wicked, do not desire their company; for their hearts plot violence, and their lips talk about making trouble.

By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.

The wise prevail through great power, and those who have knowledge muster their strength. Surely you need guidance to wage war, and victory is won through many advisors.

Wisdom is too high for fools; in the assembly at the gate they must not open their mouths.

Whoever plots evil will be known as a schemer. The schemes of folly are sin, and people detest a mocker.

If you falter in a time of trouble, how small is your strength! Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering towards slaughter. If you say, ‘But we knew nothing about this,’ does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it? Will he not repay everyone according to what they have done?

Eat honey, my son, for it is good; honey from the comb is sweet to your taste. Know also that wisdom is like honey for you: if you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.
‭‭
Proverbs‬ ‭24:1-14‬ ‭(NIV)

Pray: Father, give us a real concern for those who stagger towards eternity without trusting in your Son, Jesus Christ.  Give them an opportunity to hear the true message of Easter.  Amen

Every blessing
