PUNITIVE REDEMPTION

September 11, 2015

Friday

 

Proverbs 28:5

 

Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things

 

 

LESSON

 

The iniquity of “evil people (men)” blinds them to true “justice.” For them, wrong is often right. Having hardened their hearts to God’s will, they become incapable—but for the grace of God—of recognizing some forms of sinful behavior as sinful. (Ironically, such people sometimes become quite judgmental about other forms of sin.) Samson appears to be an example. Playing fast and loose with sin led to his physical blindness. In contrast, those who seek the Lord and follow His will see things more realistically. The Apostle John wrote that the Holy Spirit enables

Christians who walk with the Lord to perceive what is right and what is wrong.

The Old Testament prophet Amos, who preached a great deal about the need for justice, said this, Seek good, not evil, that you may live. Then the LORD God Almighty will be with you, just as you say He is. May we as individuals and as a nation, see good and not evil, that the Lord would truly be with us.
