By Don Ruhl

You know someone who is upright. What kind of relationship do you have with that person? Do you encourage him in his uprightness? Or do you mock him for it? Do you try to see if you can trip him up and cause him to fall? Listen to the Holy Spirit:

Whoever causes the upright to go astray in an evil way,
He himself will fall into his own pit;
But the blameless will inherit good.

– Proverbs 28.10

Cause the upright to fall and the Lord will see to it that you fall into a pit. Therefore, strengthen the upright and imitate them, for then you will inherit good.

Questions:

  • How committed are you to uprightness?
  • Are your closest friends upright?
