Proverbs 14: 2

There was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile,
He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse.And they all lived together in a little crooked house.

There's your lesson.
Never thought you would have a Bible Study on a nursery rhyme, did you?

Well, I will add a bit more to it. 
I do think that when someone does something crooked, evil, wrong--that every single part of their life is affected. Their family, their lifestyle, even their physical home.

When someone is trying to walk upright, the same is true. Every aspect of their life should be affected. Now, I am not going to say it is always good. Some family/friends will mock or be angry, or shun you. But life in general will be so much better if you try hard to walk upright. Your husband, your children, your grandchildren, even your physical home. 


or this:

It's your choice, you know. "If mamma ain't happy, ain't no one happy."

I think we all have a better attitude if we are trying to do what is righteous. (Usually, anyway) And a bad one when we know what we are living is not what would please God. That attitude affects everyone and every thing in our lives.

"Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?" Romans 2:4

Refusing to do what is righteous is a sure way to ruin a good attitude!

Great post, Tonya! I think that you are right on the money...being "crooked" will definitely affect all of the parts of our lives, and make us miserable. Some people call it conscience, some say it is the Holy Spirit, but whatever one prefers to call it, it's a powerful force in our attitudes and personalities. Your last quote reminded me...I've been trying to be more positive and upbeat, since how I act influences all of the peeps in the house!
