You established an immutable standard of justice. While the consequences of violating Your boundaries are not always immediate; they are always certain.
In America today we mock Your guidance as foolish and prudish. We call Your standards of right and wrong punitive or immoral, unworthy of concern. We have turned Your order upside down and the visible results everywhere fails to convince us of our utter foolishness. To drink and drug ourselves into oblivion…to treat others with contempt…to see
sex as means of self gratification…abandon the weak and vulnerable…all this and much more is celebrated in our debased culture.
To turn to Your standards and respect Your authority once again in our lives is our only hope of avoiding the terrible consequences of our poor choices.
Scripture: “What sorrow for those who say that evil is good and good is evil, that dark is light and light is dark, that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter.
What sorrow for those who are wise in their own eye and think themselves so clever.” Isaiah 5:20-21
