Proverb 1: 18

But they lie in wait for their own blood; they ambush their own lives.

This verse tells us about the ramification of sowing ill-fated seed. When people plot to hurt or deceive others, they are in fact lying in wait for their own blood. They are killing themselves. Verse 19 says that this kind of life “takes away the life of its possessors.” In other words, these acts are draining the life out of the person who performs them. God gives us guidelines and rules to go by because He is trying to protect our lives. He wants you to consider other people’s feelings and be kind to others because He wants to protect your life from damage. Put other people first in your life so that more life can flow to you.
