Chapter thirteen of Proverbs deals with the subject of truth. There is a truth about listening (verse 1), a truth about living (verse 2), a truth about laziness (verse 4), a truth about lying (verse 5), a truth about limits (verse 6), and so it goes throughout the chapter.
It’s the truth about limits I would like for us to look at in today’s devotion.
If you would look again at the word righteousness in our text verse, it is a judicial word meaning to make Godly decisions. Then notice the word upright, it carries the idea of being whole, not divided. I believe the principle is clear – Godly decisions keep you whole.
Every one of us needs to set some limits for our life: things we will not do, places we will not go, words we will not use, clothing we will not wear. Without limits we find ourselves in a constant quandary.
As a boy growing up in south
✞Write down your limits and stick to them.
