Or Much – Truth?

Finding the Path, the Truth,

May Be Only The First Challenge,

as Predators

(The Devil’s Agents)

Wait for Us.

Jeremiah 5:3

O Lord, do your eyes not look for truth? You have struck them, but they felt no anguish; you have consumed them, but they refused to take correction. They have made their faces harder than rock; they have refused to turn back.

Luke 16:10

Whoever is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much; and whoever is dishonest in a very little is dishonest also in much.

Words of Grace For Today

If only we could get it right with just a little bit, like being faithful … and not just faithful to some confused idea of what’s important, but the one thing to be faithful to that makes all the difference in the universe, God.

Of course, we cannot, not for long. We are good at getting it all wrong, no matter how long we hang on to getting a few things right. Eventually we just let the Devil have her way with us.

It’s great that God knows the truth, even the truth about us: that we play with the Devil eventually … every day. Because God, knowing the truth, still planned for that, and responded with grace and love.

Imagine, for all the one’s who work for the Devil, God consumed them, but they refused to take correction.

God consumed them! Yet they live on??! What’s that about? How does God consume them without them dying? That’s grace, big time!

And still, like all of us die-hard sinners, it does not matter that God’s grace is so powerful for us, we have made our faces harder than rock; we have refused to turn back.

So what does God do???

More Grace,

and more Grace,

and yet more Grace!

God works wonders by transferring Jesus’ record of faithfulness to our record … just as if we were actually faithful in just a little and in a great big deal.

So what are we going to do with this?

What are we going to do today?

No matter what we try to do, God will work through us, and the results are going to be wonderful and miraculous,

.. so hang on to our hats.
