(Pro 12:3 KJV) A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved.
“Wickedness” (7562) does not have a “root” (8328). It does not start with one. It does not develop one. Adam Clarke makes an interesting statement about this. He says, “Evil is always a variable...” I know that variables are a part of math and necessary for equations but in living life variables become a matter of convenience. Have you ever tried to play a game like Monopoly with someone who keeps changing the rules? It doesn’t take long before no one will play their game.
You run into people like this all the time. In politics we see this as one difference between those called liberal and those called conservative. Whatever the value of their positions and whether you agree with them or not, one side adjusts the facts and the other adjusts to the facts. Truth does not change. In order to not change it must exist and be understandable.
So? We need to be constantly seeking to understand the truth. In order to do that we need to find out what it is. That is another good reason to begin each day in the Book of Truth.
