Proverbs 13:13: Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.
The word spoken of here is God’s word or instruction on how to live life. If anybody despises the word of God or expresses a strong dislike or hatred, then their end would be destruction. On the other hand, if anybody fears or respects God’s command, they will be rewarded.
What shall we choose then? There are two options in front of us, one is respect and fear God’s word and be rewarded or hate and disrespect His word for our life and be destroyed. Whoever obeys God’s word and builds his life on it is like a wise man who built his house on a rock. The rains came but his house stood still. The foolish man on the other hand chose not to heed to wisdom or instruction and built his house on sand. His house was washed away. Where is our foundation today or on what do we base our foundation upon? Is it based on obeying the word or is it living based on what we feel is “right”?
Obey and respect God even if you feel that you have not received your blessing yet. Fear God and make His word to be the ultimate dictum for your life. Do what God says is right and whatever He has instructed for you. Love Him with all of your heart, mind, and soul. You will be rewarded.
