Daily Wisdom 311: Proverbs 14:11

Proverbs 14:11 (NKJV) — 11 The house of the wicked will be overthrown, but the tent of the upright will flourish.

Insecurity and stability. A recurring theme in the Book of Proverbs is the insecurity of the wicked. It is important to realize this truth, for, from the limited perspective of human experience, it may appear that the wicked are successful and stable. But from God’s perspective of eternity, where even the nations are as a drop in the bucket (Isaiah 40:15), there is no security at all in wickedness. And regardless of what our senses tell us, the upright are not only stable and secure, but they will prosper in the way that really matters.
