Proverbs 4:14-16 (NLT)
14 Don’t do as the wicked do, and don’t follow the path of evildoers. 15 Don’t even think about it; don’t go that way. Turn away and keep moving. 16 For evil people can’t sleep until they’ve done their evil deed for the day. They can’t rest until they’ve caused someone to stumble.

As Solomon reflects on the words of his father King David, he cautions about the path of the wicked. Previously Solomon has said wisdom is the path to seek and to follow. One must take heed to avoid the ways of sin and everything that leads in the direction of sin. His words of caution are to stay clear of those committing evil for fear of falling into sin ourselves.

Job 22:26-30 says, “Then you will take delight in the Almighty and look up to God. You will pray to him, and he will hear you, and you will fulfill your vows to him. You will succeed in whatever you choose to do, and light will shine on the road ahead of you. If people are in trouble and you say, ‘Help them,’ God will save them. Even sinners will be rescued; they will be rescued because your hands are pure.” These words go well with the Wisdom of Solomon. As we take delight in God and take His word to heart, and we fellowship with God through prayer; we find ourselves wanting to do as the Lord has asked. We become a reflection of the light of God. Our deeds reach out to others; those who need help and those who are in sin. Keeping away from sin keeps our hands pure and as we walk in righteousness others can be rescued from sin. We must heed Solomon’s warning not to walk in the way of the wicked or we will fail to lead others from sin. Ask God that you might walk in purity and holiness. Ask that you would succeed in following the path of wisdom and righteousness, always avoiding the temptations of evil.
