Proverbs 3:31-35 contrasts the consequences of living by the law of sin and death or the wisdom of God. For instance, we are warned,
Do not resentfully envy and be jealous of an unscrupulous, grasping man, and choose none of his ways. For the perverse are an abomination [extremely disgusting and detestable] to the Lord.
(Pr. 3:31-32 AMP)
You see, "unscrupulousness" is perverted integrity. It is the opposite of what we are to walk in if we want to live in pleasantness and peace. We are to choose none of the ways of those who walk in opposition to justice and integrity, because they are an abomination to the Lord. His face is turned against them.

On the other hand, look at God's wonderful promise to those who walk uprightly in His wisdom:
His confidential communion and secret counsel are with the [uncompromisingly] righteous (those who are upright and in right standing with Him).
(Pr. 3:32 AMP)
This passage of Scripture goes on to contrast the homes of the wicked and the righteous:
The curse of the Lord is in and on the house of the wicked, but He declares blessed (joyful and favored with blessings) the home of the just and consistently righteous.
(Pr. 3:33 AMP)
You can see what walking in the wisdom, reverence and honor of God will do for you in your life. This scripture promises that the more place you give God in your life, the more blessed your home and family will be. God's wisdom is what works!

Then the contrast between the wise and the wicked is taken one more step:
The wise shall inherit glory (all honor and good) but shame is the highest rank conferred on [self-confident] fools.
(Pr. 3:35 AMP)
I'm telling you, the more we read the Word, the more we can see why we should make wisdom our quest in life! We should use all our ability to pursue the wisdom and knowledge of God. Every blessing we ever receive from God to help us live a worthwhile life has its source in His wisdom!

Wisdom for Today
Acknowledge God in all of your ways today. Walk in lovingkindness toward others. Be quick to forgive, quick to bless, quick to help.

When God shows you an area in your life that isn't in line with the Word, simply receive His chastening and make the necessary correction.
