Proverbs 11:27 – Diligently Seek the Good

Proverbs 11:27
27 He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour: but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him.
-The Bible is full of the deepest and most often misunderstood truths in existence.  At the same time, the Bible is full of the most simple and straightforward truth that can be found anywhere.  Consider this proverb; it is essentially saying that those who seek good will find good and those that seek bad will find bad.  It’s really so simple that the human tendency to overcomplicate things can easily look right past and miss the point entirely.  There is another truth at work in this proverb however that is just as straightforward, and so, can be just as easily missed.  The Bible makes it clear that the ones who find good are the ones who seek it diligently, it has no such disclaimer for those who seek mischief. What’s the lesson? Simple- it’s always easy to find the bad in something; seeing the good in something often takes more work.
