#79 Seven Times Good and Evil in Proverbs

I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

Count your way to wisdom in number seventy-nine of this series, Seven Times Good and Evil in Proverbs.

The battle between good and evil is often misunderstood. The worldly definition of evil clouds the issue. If you were to question the Christian and the unbeliever, both will generally describe only vile sins as evil, but God does not restrict evil to this narrow definition. God defines evil as any thought, word, or deed that stands against any of His righteous rules. Not until the biblical definition of evil is understood, can the verses on good and evil have its holy distinction.

Seven Times Good and Evil in Proverbs:

  1. Those that seek good find good, and those that seek evil find evil.
  2. The Lord grants favor for good, and condemnation for evil.
  3. Evil will one day bow down to recognize the righteousness of good.
  4. Good meets steadfast love and faithfulness along the way, but evil meets no love and no faithfulness, because they go astray by their own evil devises.
  5. God is constantly on watch for the good and the evil.
  6. Evil leaves a legacy of evil for the evil one’s household.
  7. Anyone that leads the upright into evil will fall, but the good will have an inheritance of good.

Too often the weight of evil is passed on to the evil persons family. Therefore, the Bible teaches that a godly family finds peace in the good of the Bible.

I am Fred Myers, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding.

Pr 11:27 Whoever diligently seeks good seeks favor, but evil comes to him who searches for it.

Pr 12:2 A good man obtains favor from the Lord, but a man of evil devices he condemns.

Pr 14:19 The evil bow down before the good, the wicked at the gates of the righteous.

Pr 14:22 Do they not go astray who devise evil? Those who devise good meet steadfast love and faithfulness.

Pr 15:3 The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good.

Pr 17:13 If anyone returns evil for good, evil will not depart from his house.

Pr 28:10 Whoever misleads the upright into an evil way will fall into his own pit, but the blameless will have a goodly inheritance.
