Daily Proverb: Words of the Upright Vs Words of the Wicked


11 By the blessing of the upright, a city is raised up;
but the words of the wicked tear it down.

~ Pr 11:11 (CJB)

The wicked are not satisfied unless they tear down and destroy.  Their intent is upon being destructive.  However, even the rebukes of the righteous are done for repentance’s sake.  They build up and edify (1Co 14:12) as much as possible (i.e., “bless”).
