I've been reading Psalms this week and read Psalm 37 this morning. This verse (28) stood out to me:

"For the Lord loves justice and does not forsake His saints; they are preserved forever, but the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off."

In fact, it states that the wicked and their future "will be cut off" a number of times throughout the psalm. I pray that our iteration of the "wicked being cut off" can't come soon enough!!


"And God said, Let us make man in our image …and let them have dominion …and all the creatures that move along the ground".
Genesis 1:26

I called for quick justice one time. It came faster than I thought right on my own head. It was just, which was not a bad thing, but it surely did hurt for a season !

It's hard to look around us and not have a righteous indignation in what we see but I'm reminded about my own walk. We need to be patient, there is nothing hid that won't be revealed soon enough.

Posco- I totally agree. As in the times of David, the Lord works according to His schedule, not ours...

That’s a double Amen.


It is more blessed to give than to receive

Sounds a bit like Amos 5:18-20

As for us as a nation, I would hope for mercy. But as in Israels past they would get back on track with Gods' plan and with their spiritual blessing would come physical blessing and after a while they would turn from God, then tho justice might not have been immediate their moral decay would be followed by prosperity decay. Gods' judgement comes in due time. Its like we are pulling His wrath behind us with a cart rope. When in reality if we would quit pulling our sins behind us as with a rope then God would perhaps show mercy. Question is, how bad will things have to get before we will turn around, at least as a whole?

I often reflect on Paul's simple statement that he confessed to know nothing but Christ crucified.

All of a believer's hope will always be contained in the Person and Work of Jesus Christ in His 1st and 2nd Coming = the Gospel of our Lord.

The rest....
we leave to God's Will.

Which isn't easy at all when we consider how we would run a show.

But Exodus 34:6-7 reads that God is compassionate, gracious, slow to anger, abounding in lovingkindness, and truth.
We're not.
But then again He's the Creator and we're the created.
Praise God!

Blessings,
Mark

I went to the "celebration of life" of my best renown colleagues (about 10 years my senior) last night who had recently passed after dying from an "explosive growing" cancer in less than 2 months. I'm sure the vast majority of the people there (100-150) are secular, probably low percentage of actual practicing believers. My deceased colleague had been raised RC but I don't how much him or his family believed anymore. I had sent his widow a card earlier in the week where I told her she should look up Revelation 21:4 sometime.When I had a chance to talk to her towards the end of the evening, she thanked me for the card and the scripture verse. I hadn't talked to my retired (still worked part-time) colleague since last summer but I hope somewhere after he got sick, he re-evaluated things in the light of his human mortality and realized there is something much larger than us humans and he asked Jesus to be his Savior. At least he got some time to think about it, people die suddenly everyday that have no "second chances". We can be mighty in the world's eyes but in the end we all face the mortality of the flesh. Only Jesus changes what happens afterwards...

Great testimony NonPCfed.
We can imagine what the world would be like if we all did what God has suggested since the 1st day He created man and woman....
Love God and Love Others.

You did both of those in your actions to your colleague and those types of works are what James lays out in his Book of Scripture.
Sound faith always elicits acts of kindness and love for others.

We could sure us more of that these days.
People, more and more, are gathering their own personal wagons and selfishly not caring for others while a few people say, "Nope, we're rogue and we're the remnant!"

Money makes us do that.
Pull in on compassion and kindness to others and such.
Relationships that are hard to deal with makes us do that.
Our own nature, the world and Satan shout at us daily to do that.
Be selfish. Who cares about others. Take care of yourself and let them swim alone.
They deserve it.

But I recall that I am a dirty, rotten sinner, saved by grace and that there's only one power that whispers to our hearts, minds, and souls, very loudly when physical life gets very hard or very short. Perhaps your colleague knew that in his heart towards the end of his life.

I will pray toady, as I do every day, for God to gather some more of us to Himself (I sure like those old Charles Spurgeon sermons!).

Blessings,
Mark

Do not pray judgement on another but a changing of their heart

Romans 3:23 and Matt 7:1-2 come to mind
