Good - Day 46

Proverbs 7:1 - Proverbs 20:21
          This section of reading has over all themes but they are carried out with verses of little bits of wisdom. Each verse could almost stand on its own. I want to point out the benefits of doing good.
Doing good is favorable.
"He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour: but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him." Proverbs 11:27
Doing good is favorable with God.
"A good man obtaineth favour of the Lord: but a man of wicked devices will he condemn." Proverbs 12:2
God sees the good.
 "The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good." Proverbs 15:3   
There are rewards for doing good.
  "He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good." Proverbs 19:8
          There are a multitude of benefits for good behavior. They are not instantaneous which may not be pleasing to our instant gratification society but they are well worth the wait. That is when the wisdom comes in to play. Living a good life pays off and God makes it clear he is watching us and beholding our good. It is not the easy way but it is clearly God's way.
