The righteous is delivered from trouble, and the wicked walks into it instead (Proverbs 11:8, ESV).
It is prudent to give ear to him who knows of that which he speaks. Parents are good illustrations of this. How much more so our heavenly Father? The righteous is delivered from trouble because of their education and protective wall. This matter of education and justice is the Lord’s protective measure. When Jesus said he was the way the truth and the life, he said this in order to help us understand the best way to live. Those who refuse to hear will walk into the evil they had hoped to avoid. RT
