21For your ways are in full view of the Lord,
    and he examines all your paths.
22The evil deeds of the wicked ensnare them;
    the cords of their sins hold them fast.
23For lack of discipline they will die,
    led astray by their own great folly.
(Proverbs 5:21-23, NIV)

21For your ways are in full view of the Lord,
    and he examines all your paths.
22The evil deeds of the wicked ensnare them;
    the cords of their sins hold them fast.
23For lack of discipline they will die,
    led astray by their own great folly.
(Proverbs 5:21-23, NIV)

 

It is a sobering thought, knowing that God sees everything that we do. We have no secrets from God. Verse 22 of this Proverbs warns us not to get ensnared with the sin of the wicked, with verse 23 concluding that a lack of discipline brings death. Do you lead a disciplined life? Do you measure God’s word against the ways of the world before you act?
