Proverbs Challenge, Day 5


For the ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord, And He ponders all his paths.”

In the 5th chapter of Proverbs, verse 21 reminds us that God is always aware of where we are and what we do.  While much of the chapter deals specifically with the issue of infidelity in marriage and revelry with the seductress, this little nugget in verse 21 brings home the significance of our actions.  Often times illicit affairs and sexual behavior outside of marriage are done “in secret”.  So called lovers slip off to hideaways or time their encounters so that they are “alone” with each other.  Yet this verse reminds us that God sees us and knows our actions.  He also “ponders our paths”.  In other words, the Lord not only see what we do; He knows why we do it.  Perhaps if we remember that He really is watching, we will be inspired to turn to Him for help to resist temptation and to walk uprightly before Him!
