Good Afternoon! Today is day 29 of our Proverbs Challenge. The verse that stood out this morning was verse 27.
“The righteous despise the unjust; the wicked despise the godly.”
Proverbs 29:27 NLT
The wicked will despise the godly, now that really speaks about what’s going on in America and the world today. Jesus warned us that sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold. That the world will hate us and we will be arrested, persecuted, and killed just because we are Jesus’ followers. But that is nothing new, it has been going on ever since our Lord and Savior rose from the grave. Since the Garden of Eden Satan has been trying to cause division among mankind. Satan has attempted to infuse our culture and the entire world with a mindset that keeps us separated from God. God teaches faith. Satan pushes fear. God teaches love. Satan presses us to hate. God is all good, and Satan is all evil in every single way imaginable. It’s important to understand that God is never involved with evil, and Satan is never active in doing good. Folks, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy.
