Proverbs 10

Righteous and Wicked

This chapter differentiates aspects of the righteous and wicked.  What really caught my eye was that righteous was associated with wisdom and wickedness was associated with talking a lot.  Wickedness seems to be tied to the tongue, rightfully so.  In James 3:8 it says   “It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.” I think one thing to take away from this passage and something we can apply in our own lives is to watch what we say and think before saying anything.  If we hold our tongue, I think we are taking a step closer to righteousness.
