A Daily Word - July 30, 2011

July 30

By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted, but by the mouth of the wicked it is torn down.
Proverbs 11:11

The upright are up-front. The more such straight-forward individuals make up a population, the more respected and revered the family, city or nation. A friend was building a fence, and tired of setting his leveling device by each slat, deciding instead to “eyeball” straightness. Twenty-seven slats later he had to tear out the fence and begin again, because the slight margin by which each was off expanded until the whole fence was crooked. Jesus Christ is the vertical standard by which uprightness is set. The more we are aligned by and in Him, the greater blessing we are to all those around us.
