In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the Lord . He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.
Who shall make it to heaven? Who shall qualify to be with the Lord at the end of his time? These are the questions David sought to answer when he put Psalm 15 together. I chose to meditate on verses 1 to 4.
I remember a radio jingle on Sunny 88.7 FM that depicts people in a queue to heaven. Soon as you get closer to the door keeper, she presses a button and down you fall into the lake of fire. One, man would however not drop into the lake, no matter how many times the button is pressed, just because he admitted his guilt at each question and sought reconciliation with the Lord.
So he alone made it to heaven. The rest were all liars!
So are all of us who entertain ‘evil doers.’ We may not necessarily be involved in that particular act, but doing nothing about it in itself is almost like conniving, and according to David, God isn’t pleased with such a stand.
Too many of us have simply looked on, when we could have at least rebuked a friend. Indirectly, we have perpetuated these actions ourselves and the blame is ours.
Let’s be bold sometimes to make our position clear if need be, irrespective of the relationships at stake.
Have a blessed day.
