Daily Wisdom 260: Proverbs 12:13

Proverbs 12:13 (NKJV) — 13 The wicked is ensnared by the transgression of his lips, But the righteous will come through trouble.

The snare of words. The wicked person’s mouth brings him more trouble than anything else. A trap is always just a word away. While the Bible nowhere guarantees the righteous person exemption from conflict, it does promise he will come out of it safely. (See Psalm 34:19; John 16:33.)
