“For the upright will inhabit the land, and those with integrity will remain in it, but the wicked will be cut off from the land, and the treacherous will be rooted out of it.”
The longer I live, the more I realize the painful truth behind the phrase, “Your sin will find you out.” Just like Adam and Eve couldn’t hide from God in the garden after they fell, neither can we hide our sin and get away with it! Praise the Lord for His sense of justice. It can be tempting to justify taking the easy way out of certain situations. However, King Solomon warns posterity against choosing to compromise their integrity. Those who allow themselves to be seduced by power, riches, and esteem will ultimately be rooted out and cut off! Those who walk in honesty will be preserved. Doing what’s right is never wasted.
"ADAM AND EVE COULDN'T HIDE FROM THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR SIN AND NEITHER CAN WE."
LORD,you are just. Thank you for preserving people who walk in integrity. When difficult choices arise, please help me to choose your way. Let me rely on your wisdom to guide my actions. I know you won’t lead me astray.
