Proverbs 22:10-16

Drive Out!

We must be proactive in our search for wisdom if we want to gain the best that God has for us. In order to benefit from God’s wisdom we must rid ourselves of hindrances and stumbling blocks that will derail our progress in gaining God’s wisdom for life.

Words and actions are a window to the heart.

In this section of scripture, there are six things we need to drive out of our heart and our thinking. In verse 10 the first thing we must drive out is scoffing which is the product of unbelief in God. This must go and be replaced with faith in God. How do we do that? Acts 16:31 gives us the answer. “…Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved…”KJV

In order to be saved we must be born again. We are to be new creations. 2 Corinthians 5:17

Also listed in this section of scripture are the words of the treacherous man, the sluggard, the adulteress, foolishness, and greed in the form of oppression. There is no hiding the truth of what is within the heart. When these things are revealed they must be driven out or they will cause us much harm!
