Proverbs 25:5

“take away the wicked from the presence of the king,

    and his throne will be established in righteousness.”

Proverbs 25:5 ESV

This verse seems to be aimed at those who advise and inform the king. In other words, the king should surround himself with godly people, people who seek righteousness. Imagine a world in which the world leaders were advised toward godliness rather than the typical global power plays so common today.

Then, imagine a world in which we surround ourselves with those who would advise us toward godliness. It’s easy to say the king should surround himself with such advisors. It’s another thing to think we need the same. But we do.

Who surrounds you by your invitation?
