Proverbs 11:19 NIV

By July 11, 2023No Comments

“Truly the righteous attain life, but whoever pursues evil finds death.” 

There it is. Right -wrong, Good – evil, black – white, up – down, need I keep going. There is a lot of gray in our world. Even scripture has a few things open to interpretation, maybe. But spiritual life and death, eternity, are clear as a beautiful sunny morning. Mankind has wanted since the beginning to negotiate the terms of eternity. God has set the parameters solidly in place and no amount of bartering can budge them. Matthew Poole says the phrase “pursues evil” is not about the believer who battles sin and temptation but instead is person who, “studiously design it, and follow after the occasions of it earnestly, and greedily, and industriously.” As clear as the promise and warning of this verse are it’s heartbreaking to know  how many ignore it. Primarily those committed to evil. Today choose the righteous life and live now and forever. #BeTheEdge

“This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live”Deuteronomy‬ ‭30‬:‭19‬ ‭NIV‬‬
