Daily Wisdom 249: Proverbs 12:2

Proverbs 12:2 (NKJV) — 2 A good man obtains favor from the Lord, But a man of wicked intentions He will condemn.

The most valuable blessing. What could be superior to obtaining the Lord’s favor? When a person chooses to do good, the blessings of the Lord will be upon that person. Genuine spiritual goodness comes only from the presence of the Holy Spirit. (See Galatians 5:22-23.) The good person will have no need of wicked tactics, favoritism, under-the-table activities, or good-luck charms. Indeed, God will judge the person who relies on anything other than Him for blessings, prosperity, and provision.
