An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Jello Justice

(Pro 17:15 KJV) He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.

This verse shouts out to us today.  We want to ignore it.  We do ignore it.  All around us we see a culture redefining morality and nailing down the Jello of justice.  How about another  alliteration:  The Silly-Putty of Spirituality.  Pedophelia is going mainstream.  Rioting is the new family outing.  Ignorance is glorified.  God is not amused.

We often forget that the ultimate judge is not Judge Judy or the Ninth Circuit.  It isn’t even the SCOTUS.  The ultimate judge is God.  The final measure of evil and good is His word.  

So?  The standard is established.  It just remains a question of which side we want to come down on.  Choose wisely.

That's why so many claim to be atheists, they're trying to escape condemnation for their sins. As we know, they're just going from bad to worse.

I remember when I was losing a tooth and would not tell my mom because I knew she would deal with it. As a result my replacement came in crooked. Not as bad as an eternity in hell but the same principle.

Grace and peace
