(A simple series highlighting verses from each chapter of the book of Proverbs)
One who isolates himself pursues selfish desires; he rebels against all sound judgment…The name of Yahweh is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are protected. Proverbs 18:1,10 HCSB
These two verses are a study in opposites.
- Runs toward his desires, potentially away from better choices
- Runs away from wisdom rather than toward surrender
- Runs toward God first and always
- Runs toward strength and protection rather than selfishness and rebellion
