“Upright citizens are good for a city and make it prosper, but the talk of the wicked tears it apart. It is foolish to belittle one’s neighbor; a sensible person keeps quiet.”
One of my favorite toys as a kid was a Weeble. A weeble is a very bottom-heavy, broad based toy that was shaped like an egg. Round on the bottom with a face on the top, its trademark slogan was “Weebles wobble but they don’t fall down”.
Upright means to stand aright-head up, no matter what comes your way. These type citizens, vs 11 says “are good for a city”. Naturally, as the citizens goes, so goes the city! Upright people make upright decisions. Enough such decisions, made by enough people, affect a city. This debunks the excuse that some of us make by claiming, “my sin only effects me” or “my contribution isn’t big enough to impact others”. YES IT IS! You can GREATLY impacts the world around you! Don’t be a negitive “impactor”-be a POSITIVE “impactor!
God is looking for a positive MOUTH in your part of the world! Be that person who SPEAKS LIFE & HEALS the broken! (Prov 15:4 & Prov 12:18)
Think about it!
