(Proverbs 30:33 KJV) Surely the churning of milk bringeth forth butter, and the wringing of the nose bringeth forth blood: so the forcing of wrath bringeth forth strife.
Cause and effect is a principle that has largely disappeared from our educational system at least as it applies to the real world. You can observe cause and effect in life. If you drop a china cup, it shatters. If you step in front of a car, it splatters. Churning milk, butter. Punching nose, blood. We see it all around us and usually learn from the experience.
No so much in areas where we want to ignore the laws of physics and morality. We are being taught that homosexual marriage is not problem, that the death culture of abortion will have no side effects, that unearned welfare checks are a road to success. We have watched for years. We see nothing but failure. Have you noticed that the advocates of socialism always have a phrase, “That was not real socialism” to apply to any failures.
So? God has given us principles. They are pretty easy to understand. Ignore them at your own peril. Implement them to blessing. Seems like an easy choice and it is a good time of year to work on change.
