Proverbs is a practical book filled with "sound bites" of God's wisdom. As we read, we need to remember that a proverb isn't a promise that God will always respond to our behavior in a certain way, but a memorable phrase that points to truth beyond itself. Proverbs are God's guidelines for wise living, not his guarantees for prosperity or blessing.
Read Proverbs 6:27
Can a man scoop fire into his lap
without his clothes being burned?
One great thing about Proverbs is all the wonderful metaphors used to describe certain situations. Doing wrong and avoiding the consequences is about as unlikely as scooping fire into your lap and not burning your clothes.
Is there any situation in your life right now where you're playing with fire? Have you fooled yourself into believing you won't get burned? Take some time to talk with God about any unconfessed sin in your life. Ask for God's forgiveness and the power to turn away from sin.
