Daily Proverb: Foolishness Under the Cover of Darkness


7 I saw among the inexperienced,[a]
I noticed among the youths,
a young man lacking sense.
8 Crossing the street near her corner,
he strolled down the road to her house
9 at twilight, in the evening,
in the dark of the night.

~ Pr 7:7-9 (HCSB)

You know you are doing wrong when you have to do something in the cover of darkness.  In contrast, we are to be children of light.  We are commanded to be discerning and to walk in the light.

6 Let no one deceive you with empty arguments, for God’s wrath is coming on the disobedient because of these things.[a] 7 Therefore, do not become their partners.8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light9 for the fruit of the light[b] results in all goodness, righteousness, and truth10 discerning what is pleasing to the Lord.
