Proverbs 11:8 - The righteous is delivered from trouble, But the wicked takes his place.
Words to Ponder
Would it not pierce your heart to see a company of creatures drudging and toiling to carry together faggots and fuel for their own burning? This is the employment of sin's drudges. Even while they bless themselves in their unrighteous gains, while they sing in their pleasure, they are but treasuring up vengeance for their eternal burning; they are but adding to the pile of Tophet, and flinging in oil to make the flame rage the fiercer. Who would serve such a master, whose work is drudgery, whose wages are death? - Joseph Alleine (1634-68)
