(Proverbs 6:18 KJV) An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
We are about half way through a list of seven. You might remember the movie “The Magnificent Seven.” This is more like the list of “Seven Deadly Sins” because they are labeled as abominations. One abomination is the way in which people are attracted to “wicked” (evil NASB) (7463a).
It is a human tendency to “run” (7323) toward “evil” (7463a). I see this every time there is a fight on campus. I can tell if it is a real fight. I ignore kids who walk around yelling, “Fight.” If I see half the student body stampeding joyfully in one direction I know fists are flying. I see it when there is an accident on the freeway. People want to see the pain of others.
We often let this come to the surface in our entertainment or conversations. God hates this tendency.
So? Do a heart check. What have you been watching, reading, listening to? Is it a response of a heart full of God or a heart full of the flesh? Is it time to repent? You and God know your heart. God and I know mine.
