Proverb for the Day 2:12 — Don’t be That Guy!

Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men, from men whose words are perverse,

One of the benefits of developing an intimate relationship with Lady Wisdom is that she will save us guys from getting mixed up with wicked men who say twisted things (:12-16; see also 1:10-19).

There are lots of “players” out there who might appear to have it all and it is easy to begin wanting to hang with them and be like them. These guys can talk us into joining them in some very inappropriate activities (:13-15). Every day we have to decide to listen to wisdom or live with the consequences.
