I spent a moment reading myself this morning.
The title of a post I wrote in 2017 is entitled
Perhaps you would be inclined to read it too. A refresher we could say.
Just click above (Sticky Wicket) and a new window with the old post will open for you.
Thanks and happy Thursday!
Psalm 37 tells us to Fret Not because of Evil Doers.
Does that give us a license to care not that evil is operating in our world?
Does Psalm 37:1 mean that we should give the doers of evil no thought?
And if not what thoughts do we give?
1 Do not fret because of evildoers, Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. source
Would you agree that in this Land there is an abundance of Doers of Evil?
I for sure would. (And many of them are congregating on a Hill.)
Yet I wonder if I have been guilty of being envious of them?
Envious that they go on year after year in many cases and reap no visible signs of justice.
But I don’t know that, do I?
And what business is it of mine anyway?
What is my business where the evildoer is concerned?
Especially the evildoer that makes laws that bear on my life or the lives of others.
Should not I be concerned about such?
What is our duty before GOD when we see what we are seeing here in the Winter of 2021?
Fret not for sure.
I won’t ask how to fret not because the rest of Psalm 37 explains in grand detail how.
Even so, I still have the question, beyond not fretting:
What can the average Mary and James do about corruption?
What should the average Mary and James do when they encounter an instrument of evil?
As you may have noticed, I have more questions than answers today.
Albeit, I do have this to offer:
2 Corinthians 10:
3 For though we walk in the flesh [as mortal men], we are not carrying on our [spiritual] warfare according to the flesh and using the weapons of man.
4 The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.
5 We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ,
6 being ready to punish every act of disobedience, when your own obedience [as a church] is complete. source
