Proverbs 16:6-10

Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for;
    through the fear of the Lord evil is avoided.

When the Lord takes pleasure in anyone’s way,
    he causes their enemies to make peace with them.

Better a little with righteousness
    than much gain with injustice.

In their hearts humans plan their course,
    but the Lord establishes their steps.

10 The lips of a king speak as an oracle,
    and his mouth does not betray justice.

One response to “Proverbs 16:6-10

  1. There is only one atonement for sin, and that is Jesus Christ. So, through His love for the Father, and for us, and His faithfulness to God’s plan, our sins are atoned for.

    Even when we have enemies, or people, set against us and intent on seeing us harmed, we can look to Jesus. When He finds pleasure in our obedience, He causes our enemies to move aside.

    We make plans, we set goals and we dream, but we commit this to God. He establishes our way and makes our paths straight.
