Proverbs 13 - Key


Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors [is] hard.
...[it is] abomination to fools to depart from evil.

In a conflict when I can't stop being upset I've found it's useful to consider that maybe I'm still unsettled because I have my own unsettled sin: the way of transgressors [is] hard. It's hard to admit that I'm wrong, like when I see that the other person has such a fault, or I'm afraid they won't receive my apology well, or I just feel like I have to do something about their problem. But, if I detest going away from evil, I'm a fool: ...[it is] abomination to fools to depart from evil. Fools have their standards reversed.


When I'm having a hard time, I'll consider whether it might be because I have a sin in my life that I need to deal with. (Of course, I know that's not always the case.) If I do, I'll remember to just go ahead and repent from it, despite the excuses, instead of detesting departing from evil. I should do it easily.
