Proverbs with Purpose for Young People- Proverbs 2:7

Here's a practical example to understand -

Proverbs 2:7: He stores away sound wisdom for the righteous [those who are in right standing with Him]; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity [those of honorable character and moral courage


Imagine you're playing a game where there are rules to follow. If you follow the rules and play fair, you have a better chance of winning and having fun.

But if you cheat or break the rules, not only do you risk losing the game, but you also might lose friends because nobody wants to play with someone who doesn't play fairly.

Similarly, Proverbs 2:7 says that God gives special wisdom and protection to people who try to do what is right and just.

When we make wise choices and act with integrity, we become more trustworthy and respected by others, just like how following the rules makes us a better player in the game.

And when we face challenges or difficulties, God becomes our protector and guide, helping us navigate through tough situations with grace and strength.

So, striving to do what is right and treating others fairly is like earning a special reward - we gain wisdom and protection from God!
