The root of the righteous will never be moved

No one finds security by wickedness, but the root of the righteous will never be moved – Proverbs 12:3

Who doesn’t want to be secure? Knowing how much evil there is in the world, we must all face an undeniable truth – at times we are not totally safe. Security is one of the greatest problems of the postmodern world. People spend a lot of money trying to provide safety for themselves, their families, their money, their businesses. They try to predict and prevent bad things from happening. That’s why we sign all kinds of contracts, pay for security services and move to safer places. However, we still cannot hide from evil. Although it is necessary to think about security and do our best to provide it, it is above all important to know that in the long run, our security depends mostly on God. God tells us to be righteous because righteousness deeply roots us in God’s grace. God, Himself then protects us. Evildoers think their wicked deeds bring them security, but the truth is the opposite. Wickedness does not provide real protection only God can do that
