ADMONITION of CHRISTIANS

October 5, 2016

Wednesday

 

Psalm 141:5

 

Let the righteous smite me in kindness and reprove me; It is oil upon the head; Do not let my head refuse it, For still my prayer is against their wicked deeds.

 

 

LESSON

 

Life is built on character and character is built on decisions. This psalm reveals David making a number of wise decisions as he faced the attacks of the enemy. The psalmist expressed openness to the constructive criticisms of the righteous, but he prayed for God to judge the wicked. He believed their leaders would fail, as when an attacking army throws the judges of their enemy from cliffs to destroy them.

Let the righteous smite me.” Let the sincere, humble, constant Christian, who is blameless and harmless, the child of God, without rebuke, let him administer reproof. Let the conscientious man   endeavor to keep himself always in the love of God. Let him be a pattern of righteousness and peace before he reprove and rebuke others. This is Christian reproof, and has the weight which God designed it to have.
