Some Are Up to No Good
| Do not be naive and
gullible. Sometimes people try to be loving and kind but if they are not
wide awake they can assume too much. They will assume everybody really
wants to do what is right but are just mistaken. NOT SO!
Proverbs 4: 14-17 warns about the wicked and evil man. We must avoid his path and turn from it. Why? "They sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall." Obviously there are those who are not content unless they are doing something evil and harmful. They are up to no good.
We would rather think that people would prefer to do what is right. That is true of many. But that is not true of all. Some have decided the way of the Devil is better than the way of the Lord and they pursue that manner of life to the hurt of everyone around them. The world overflows with wicked and evil people who prefer sin rather than good. We have to accept reality. Some people have as their goal to do wickedness. We must avoid such people.
