Good read with many scripture references doing the talking! One scripture I have seen so many times in life but havent given much thought to is “Doing wrong is like a joke to a fool, but wisdom is pleasure to a man of understanding” (Prov 10:23). Im reminded of the old why worry narrative which ends with "...if i go to hell i will be so busy shaking hands with my friend I wont have time to worry" I wonder if anybody who ever said this actually believed it. I know that I didnt when I had said this for a laugh in the past. Truth is its no laughing matter. God takes our sins pretty serious, so much so that He gave His son to die for them. If He takes forgiveness that serious then the same is true for the unforgiven sinner. God doesnt chose who spends eternity in hell, thats a choice we make by not acting on what we know to be true. Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." 1Corinthians 1:18 "For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God."
I personally love to laugh and joke, but not in sinful foolishness anymore. My eternity or the eternity of those I care for is no laughing matter to me. If fact it causes me much pain to watch someone I love racing down the wrong road. Let us step up to the plate and be the examples of life, the wisdom of God that brings life! Eternity is at stake!! Stay Blessed, PJ
