Discussion for Proverbs 29:1

  • This scripture writing let 's us know that if Christ hadn 't come we wouldn 't stand a chance. Grace and mercy stepped in right on time. It also allows us to know that, if we continue in sin, grace won 't help us. Romans 6 1
  • This is a scary verse. At some point, the refusal of the wicked to turn from his way will lead to his demise. God's mercy will end and so will his life.
