Fun in Proverbs

I am enjoying reading something from proverbs as part of my daily devotional time. Yesterday I read this (Proverbs 5:22-23, ESV),

For your ways are in full view of the LORD,
and he examines all your paths.
The evil deeds of the wicked ensnare them;
the cords of their sins hold them fast.
For lack of discipline they will die,
led astray by their own great folly.

The Lord examines all your ways and paths – don’t be fooled they are not only the ways you physically walk, they are the thought patterns, the habits of your heart, the emotional reactions and responses. Such areas are hard to discipline and require great humility to deal with honestly.
