That’s what I get from Proverbs 1:8–19, Lord keep us from bullies! It says this:

“Hear, my son, your father’s instruction, and forsake not your mother’s teaching, for they are a graceful garland for your head and pendants for your neck. My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent. If they say, “Come with us, let us lie in wait for blood; let us ambush the innocent without reason; like Sheol let us swallow them alive, and whole, like those who go down to the pit; we shall find all precious goods, we shall fill our houses with plunder; throw in your lot among us; we will all have one purse”— my son, do not walk in the way with them; hold back your foot from their paths, for their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed blood. For in vain is a net spread in the sight of any bird, but these men lie in wait for their own blood; they set an ambush for their own lives. Such are the ways of everyone who is greedy for unjust gain; it takes away the life of its possessors.”

(Proverbs 1:8–19)

We are reminded from this Scripture that a child needs to be instructed by his father and taught by his mother to not get caught up with bullies because it is self-destructive. The father and the mother teach the child that this will be tempting to do, but the child must not do it.

This proverb may also be used to pray for one’s children or others. Bullying doesn’t merely happen with kids, but also adults. Anytime there is a “special group” that isolates itself from an individual for the sake of gain there is the seed of bullying. So, you can see the matter is quite common in life. Lord, guard us from bullying. Amen.
