Proverbs 10:24 NIV

My 3 year old grandson got in trouble while he was in the shower the other day. His mom told him he was going to the ever frightening “time out” when he finished. He stayed in the shower until all the hot water was gone…then he stayed 20 more minutes in ice cold water. Sounds a bit like his grandad. When sin gets it’s way in our life the realization of the coming penalty haunts the sinner. As a follower of Christ we don’t avoid sin out of fear of punishment but out of love for our creator. At least that should be how it works. Too often our obedience is because we are aware of the consequences of operating outside the will and protection of God. That’s certainly legitimate. Maturity in the faith brings us to the place of obedience because we desire more of God and His best for our life. The non-believer lives in fear. At least the wise ones do. Clarke said: “The wicked is full of fears and alarms; and all that he has dreaded and more than he has dreaded, shall come upon him. The righteous is always desiring more of the salvation of God, and God will exceed even his utmost desires.” Who in the world wants to live in dread? Today, obey God and live in His peace, joy and blessing. #BeTheEdge
