Mid Afternoon Meditations 9-26-20

Wisdom will save you also from the adulterous woman,
    from the wayward woman with her seductive words,
17 who has left the partner of her youth
    and ignored the covenant she made before God.[a]
18 Surely her house leads down to death
    and her paths to the spirits of the dead.
19 None who go to her return
    or attain the paths of life.

20 Thus you will walk in the ways of the good
    and keep to the paths of the righteous.
21 For the upright will live in the land,
    and the blameless will remain in it;
22 but the wicked will be cut off from the land,
    and the unfaithful will be torn from it. Proverbs 2:16-22

What are some of the ramifications of being cut off from the land?

      • Yes, I don’t understand “cavalier” either–I guess they’re truly the Lost. The verse about how parents may forsake us but God never will is very real to me. Although my mom and I probably never had one really good day together–and though she died having nothing much to speak of–when I received a copy of her will and saw I’d been summarily disinherited, it felt like the final brutal word from her. I didn’t want anything tangible–just not to see my name and “nothing” in the same sentence. I’m grateful I have a rich inheritance with the Lord–and that I don’t have to wait till I die to enjoy much of it. Bottom line, I’d rather have HIM than whatever my siblings might have received.
