Day 339: The Shadow of Sin

Proverbs 5:22

The shadow of your sin will overtake you; you’ll find yourself stumbling all over yourself in the dark.


Evil deeds ensnare those who work evil.

The tactics, schemes, devices, and tricks a man plays to get ahead catch up to him. The same means that he uses is what is used against him. Evil deeds ensnare those who work evil. They stumble over themselves in the darkness of their actions.

Remember this principle, especially when someone has targeted you with their schemes, is essential. It assures you that the precepts that govern the universe and the moral code of conduct will not be broken. Remember, a man reaps what he has sown.

David may have taught this principle to his son, Solomon. He wrote a lyrical, Messianic prophesy regarding the tactics of evil men.

May their path be dark and slippery,
with the angel of the Lord pursuing them. – Psalm 35:6

The reference to the “angel of the Lord pursuing” acknowledges the preeminence of God’s established laws, precepts, and judgments that will govern mankind’s conduct.
