The Book of Proverbs Through the Eyes of a Cop

The Book of Proverbs through the Eyes of a Cop is the second book in the Through the Eyes of a Cop devotional series. This ministry series was an inspiration from the Lord to the most unlikely of carriers. Throughout the Bible, God gives us examples of His desire to use "the least of these" to carry His message. My favorite example of this is Gideon (Judges 6-8). In Gideon's words, "My clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my family." Gideon gathered an army of 32,000 Israelites to fight the Midianites. The Bible described the Midianite army as "thick as locusts. Their camels could no more be counted than the sand on the seashore" (Judges 7:12). God whittled Gideon's army down to three thousand soldiers. He then told Gideon, "There are still too many men". God left Gideon an army of three hundred men. Needless to say, God won the victory that day. God was to get all of the glory, not the human "leader." This is my story.

This devotional provides guidance for the Christian law-enforcement officer in knowing and understanding the biblical principles found in the book of Proverbs. Integrity, ethics, peace, and truth will be immediately recognizable as law enforcement characteristics and goals but are they easily identifiable as being from God's Word? We don't always give credit where credit is due, God's perfect Word.
