Wicked Men

Proverbs 24:1-2: “Do not envy wicked men, do not desire their company; for their hearts plot violence, and their lips talk about making trouble.”

“My husbands lived on the edge. Each marriage was exciting, but it didn’t last,” a woman told me in a discussion of her three marriages.

The woman admitted she was attracted to wicked men. She said good men were boring. However, each of her wicked husbands left her in a worse financial situation than she had been before.

Those evil men initially brought her excitement. In time they were violent and brought her far more trouble than excitement.

No wonder God tells us not to envy wicked men and not to desire their company. Men can also fall into the snare of wicked women.

God loves us so much that he warns us against wicked people to protect us, his children.

Enough violence and trouble exist in our world without desiring the company of people who thrive on those things.

Dear God, help me seek the company of good people. Amen.

Application: What will you do this week to avoid the company of the wicked?
