(Pro 22:23 KJV) For the LORD will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them.
I wonder if this is an insight into judgement day. I think of all the excuses we have and how we have even convinced ourselves that they are reasons. When I think of so many people claiming “it is for the children” when it causes more harm than it helps. The world is full of people who know what is best for us and, by the way, will benefit them in some way.
God is watching. He knows our hearts. He does not use the same scale we prefer. His scale is eternal justice with a foundation of righteousness.
So? I need to really work hard not to fool myself. God is not amused.
