Scripture: Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (NKJV)
Nugget: Many of us can speak words & take actions to justify the things we do. We can do wrong & make a statement or justification as to why it was a “good” thing & in reality it was not. We can see the “right” in anything if we justify it by our thoughts, & sometimes, our desires to make it right.
This can also be said for those we surround ourselves with & those we seek advice from. For instance, have you ever gone to someone for advice because you knew they would agree with your actions, even though you knew your actions would be wrong? You tend to avoid advice from the person who would “tell it like it is” or “call you out” on what you planned to do.
In reality, in any of these scenarios, we know right from wrong; we know good from bad & light from darkness. Plus, if we have to “justify” what we’re doing, most likely it’s something we should step back from.
May we stayed prayed up about our actions & decisions---knowing what’s right & wrong in God’s eyes.
