(Pro 11:21 KJV) Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.
This is a reminder that there are two basic categories of human beings. On the one hand you have the “wicked” (evil man NASB) (7451a) and on the other you have the “righteous” (6662). We like to think of people as a spectrum. Part of that is because we want to make allowances for those we love and part is to make excuses for our own lack of commitment. There are still only two categories.
You are either on God’s team or not. When you go to a sporting event like baseball you see people wearing team jerseys complete with numbers and sometimes they even have their names stitched on the back. Does that make them part of the team or just a wannabe? The odds are they are just dreamers because if they were really on the team they would not be in the stands but out running around the field.
So? Another question that we can only answer for ourselves: Are you on God’s team or just settling for the jersey?
