Daily Wisdom 261: Proverbs 12:14

Proverbs 12:14 (NKJV) — 14 A man will be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth, And the recompense of a man’s hands will be rendered to him.

The fruit of right words and honest labor. While a wicked person is snared by the words of his mouth, as seen in Proverbs 12:13, the righteous person will be satisfied with the results of his words. (See Proverbs 18:21.) What a person is by his speech and conduct will bear fruit in his life. The law of sowing and reaping is a divine law: people ultimately receive the proper reward for their labors. (See Galatians 6:7.)
