Almost every time I read a chapter of Proverbs there is something different that stands out from the last time I read it. Today there were a couple of verses that stood out for me from Chapter 28. Verses 9 and 13:
If anyone turns a deaf ear to the law,
even his prayers are detestable.
He who conceals his sins does not prosper,
but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.
The first verse gives us a great reason to humble ourselves and confess our sins at the start of our prayers. The second verse reminds us that confessing is, as the old saying goes, "Good for the soul."
Please leave your comments about the verse or verses from Chapter 28 that struck you today.
God bless your reading,
