3The LORD does not let the righteous go hungry, but he thwarts the craving of the wicked.

10: 3   Proverbs contains many verses that contrast Godly, righteous people with wicked people. These statements do not apply universally to all people in every situation. For example, some good people do go hungry. Rather, these proverbs are intended to communicate the general truth that the lives of people who seek God will be better in the long run than the lives of wicked people, which will ultimately lead to ruin. While not ironclad promises, these statements give general principles and truths. In addition, proverbs like this assume a just government that cares for people who are poor and in need. God intended for Israel to have that kind of government (see Deuteronomy 24: 17-22). A corrupt government often thwarts the plans of Godly men and women and exploits people who are poor.

10: 3   Proverbs often describes God’s care for Godly, righteous people. Being righteous does not mean being perfect. Obviously that is impossible for human beings. Righteous people are those who love the Lord and diligently seek to follow him (Psalm 4: 3). As Christians, we have the power of the Holy Spirit to help us live godly, righteous lives.

I can't think of a better stituation than the one we are living in right now of how a government is so corrupt and using the less fortunate people to exploit there doings than what we are seeing in todays society. And unfortunately alot of people are to blind to see what is really going on. They just think they are getting something for free, when really the government is using there votes to continue the corrupt spectrum that they have created. ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and know that in the big picture GOD doesn't let the righteous go hungry!!! by RICHARD DEAN BROOKS
