(Proverbs 16:27 KJV) An ungodly man diggeth up evil: and in his lips there is as a burning fire.
Some people are simply “worthless” (NASB, ungodly KJV) (1100). This seems to be a compound word putting together “destruction” and “worthy”. I think it is broader than the KJV translation. While an ungodly person is certainly worthless, they are not synonyms. Worthless is broader than ungodly.
The point we find hard to admit is that some people are worthless. Our culture does not want to admit this. Our churches don’t want to admit it. Our pulpits don’t want to admit it. The Bible calls them “worthless.” Over the next few verses it uses other words to describe them and various behaviors to identify them.
In each case the worthless/ungodly are identified by choices they make and actions they take.
So? Take a look at yourself. You can’t change the other guy, but you have the deciding vote in your own life. Repentance, forgiveness and obedience can move anyone from the liability column to the asset column.
