Proverbs 12:11-13 The Voice (VOICE)

A person in a positive relationship with God stands in a right relationship with His creation. How we treat animals may mirror our souls—not just the pets in our home, but the pets in our neighborhood and the animals in our food supply. One who is truly right with God considers the needs of His creatures.

11 Whoever works the land will have more than enough food,
    but whoever follows empty pursuits lacks sense.
12 The wicked envy what the evil plunder,
    but the root of the right-living produces fruit for all.
13 A wrongdoer is soon boxed in by his deceitful talk,
    but the one who does right escapes from trouble unharmed.
