Proverbs 5:11 NASB

“And you groan at your final end, when your flesh and your body are consumed;”

“The beginning is the best time to think about the end!” ― Mehmet Murat ildan. Proverbs 5:11 speaks of the person who, at the end of their life, is suffering profound grief realizing that they have made a choice, or a series of choices, to live a life following their lusts and desires, in spite of knowing the truth. It is a sad, dark picture. The groaning here is like that of the roar of a lion who is in deep mental anguish. It is not anguish, however, but godly sorrow that leads to repentance. It is never too late to repent of our sin and turn to God; just think about the thief on the cross. Remorse does not equal repentance. One leads to anguish, sorrow, and depression. The other leads to cleansing, new life, and freedom. Making the decision at this point to repent should be easy, but the depth of sin’s hold makes it very difficult. Today, own your choices and repent where needed. Experience the healing refreshment of God. #BeTheEdge
