Christian Devotional – October 17, 2017

There is no entitlement from birth. In Proverbs 17:1-9, Solomon continues giving advice about wisdom. Verse 2 stood out to me because there we see a situation where someone was born into privilege, but acts shamefully, so a servant ends up ruling over him. The idea of a servant ruling over a prince is crazy, but its not about birth, its about what you do. Do we get a sense of entitlement because of who we are or who we know? That doesn’t guarantee anything. We must continue to obey God and love Him, for only through Him can He direct our paths where He wants us to go.
