Man's Plans vs. the Wisdom of the LORD's Ways

July 25, 2021
Pastor Nathan Pfeiffer

Sermon         Proverbs 16:1–9

1The plans of the heart belong to man,
but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.
2All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes,
but the Lord weighs the spirit.
3Commit your work to the Lord,
and your plans will be established.
4The Lord has made everything for its purpose,
even the wicked for the day of trouble.
5Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord;
be assured, he will not go unpunished.
6By steadfast love and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for,
and by the fear of the Lord one turns away from evil.
7When a man’s ways please the Lord,
he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
8Better is a little with righteousness
than great revenues with injustice.
9The heart of man plans his way,
but the Lord establishes his steps.
