(Pro 19:29 KJV) Judgments are prepared for scorners, and stripes for the back of fools.
My mind wandered to the thought that God spends His creativity on rewards for the righteous rather than innovative punishments for the unrepentant. I notice that the punishment for these rebels is “prepared” (3559) ahead of time. This is the word used for God establishing the heavens in Proverbs 3:19 and 8:27. It has the idea of laying down a solid foundation.
Believers have an eternity of experiencing God’s infinite creativity. Those who reject Him have a dreadful and repetitive payoff ahead.
So? Is sin fun? It is certain that the eternity of sinners won’t be.
