Therefore, they must eat the bitter fruit of living their own way, choking on their own schemes.
If a man devices his own schemes, he will suffer from his own stupidity.
We’ve previously talked about the Law of Seed – in this case the fruit is bitter because the seeds were destruction. I’m amazed at the repetitive stupidity of some men. They come up with their own devices, plans, schemes, and principals – then expect to escape destruction, as if they’re going to beat the odds. It doesn’t work that way.
When men come up with their own schemes and principals they will have to live by them and try to swallow their bitterness – usually choking on them.
Proverbs is written so that we can live by the wisdom of God – applying his principles and plans for our lives.
Guys – let’s be smart about our living.
