Proverbs 25: 26-28
Verse 26: Like a muddled spring or a polluted well is a righteous man who gives way to the wicked.
In this verse, someone who makes bad decisions gives up everything about them which is good. They are (at least for the time being) of no good use to anyone. But they were intended to be very good, and to serve many. To me this is a metaphor for all of us: we were created for a very noble purpose and have the potential to serve many. But if we make bad decisions and do evil, we are of no value to others.
Heavenly Father, thank-you for making me part of your beautiful creation. I will try, every day, to be the best I can be. I have a purpose, and it is good. Amen
