Proverbs 12:3: “No one finds security by wickedness, but the root of the righteous will never be moved.”

Wonder if your safety, your security, your survival depended upon this recycling dumpster.

These four metal walls and these two flip top metal lids were your daily safety and security.

This dumpster was your only source of protection from the evil and wicked intrusions found in the wilderness of your environment.

None of us is immune from a breach in our safety and security.

But how would we feel, if every minute of every day we were on edge because we had no reliable access for safety and security.

Consider these words from Proverbs 12:3: “No one finds security by wickedness, but the root of the righteous will never be moved.”

Sadly, no matter where we look in our wilderness, there are plenty of people who do find security in their wickedness.

These ruthless intruders have no concept of “the root of the righteous.”

And maybe I don’t either.

If my brother or sister only finds safety and security in a recycling dumpster, then truly I too have no concept of “the root of the righteous.”
