What protects the righteous? According to Proverbs 13:6 it is "righteousness that guards people of integrity." The people that live a whole can expect a complete life. On the other hand those that don't follow Jesus are undermined by wickedness. The sin that people enjoy now is more than they can handle. There is an old saying that goes like this:
Sin will take you further than you want to go.
It will keep you longer than you want to stay,
and it will cost you more than you want to pay.
Today, allow Jesus to be your guard. Remember you can't handle sin without being burned.
