~~~~~~ The truism above caught my eye and “today’s Proverb” (chapter 6, verses 12-19, at the bottom) could not go without sharing, either. Does “he who might be referenced in this Proverb” remind you of anyone? Take heart, then. Another “He (upper case H)” sees, knows, and works His plan. And HIS plan includes peace when we turn to Him in the midst of any fray. See:
Now, to the other “he” (lower case “h”):
A troublemaker and a villain, who goes about with a corrupt mouth, 13 who winks maliciously with his eye, signals with his feet and motions with his fingers, 14 who plots evil with deceit in his heart— he always stirs up conflict. 15 Therefore disaster will overtake him in an instant; he will suddenly be destroyed—without remedy.
16 There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: 17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, 18 a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, 19 a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community. (NIV)
Human nature never changes.
Fortunately, God doesn’t either.
Be of good cheer.
 I gleaned a good discussion of this Scripture here: http//www.lizcurtishiggs.com/the-20-verses-you-love-most-14-perfect-peace/#sthash.uIzeOyIp.dpuf where you can read a timely post of encouragement.
