BDBD is Proverbs 11:5-6

Making a straight way means easily and quickly reaching a goal. The righteousness of the blameless makes a straight way for them. How?

The righteousness of the upright delivers them. Verse 4 says it delivers them from death. The delivery in verse 6 is from evil desires.

Jesus taught, “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.┬áBut small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” (Matthew 7:13-14)

Who is to blame? The wicked are brought down by their own wickedness. The unfaithful are trapped by their evil desires. I learn to take control of my evil desires and wicked thoughts. Like any muscle, it takes time and has pain. But after every workout, I feel better.
