Proverbs 2

Proverbs 2: “Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men.” I hope so. I keep thinking that by this point in my life I would be wise, but I’m reminded here that I need to always be on guard against people “whose paths are crooked and who are devious in their ways.” It sounds funny to even say there’s such a thing—especially in my Blacksburgian utopia! In today’s culture it’s quite out of style to label people as wicked. If we’re honest, the black/white, wicked/righteous dichotomy that proverbs clearly sets up can be hard to accept when we see ourselves not clearly fitting into the one category and not the other.
