Today, let's look at Proverbs 28:10 Whoso causeth the righteous to go astray in an evil way, he shall fall himself into his own pit: but the upright shall have good things in possession.
This is not just a verse that deals with pastors, though it does take on a greater meaning to those who are in that calling. But each of us have what is called a "sphere of influence" that we must be careful with. The proverb implies that this person was leading the righteous astray by deceit and for their own pleasure since the end result would be that the person would fall into the pit that they created for others.
As I read it, I was reminded of all the televangelist that have led Christians away from the local church, and into their own personal ministries. They enjoy the fame and money for a while, but they always seem to fall into a pit of their own making in the end. Why? Because God is still in control!
Lets strive to be upright and lead those around us in our "sphere of influence" into the paths of righteousness so that we may have good things in possession.
