APRIL 9 READING…DEUTERONOMY 21-22 & PROVERBS 9
Every way other than God’s way is the way of folly. While we say that God’s way is the best way, we often go our own way…this leads to trouble. Many of the Lord’s commands given in Deuteronomy are the result of mankind’s poor decisions. God set His law among His people so they would not destroy themselves and others in their folly. Moses gives the people instruction in even how to treat female captives, capital punishment, and sexual immorality. He did this because they were inclined to act in error, and bring trouble upon themselves. In Proverbs, the Lord calls His people to wisdom once again. He tells them to choose wisdom, because ultimately the way of folly leads to hell.
