THEME: Don’t Be Mocked. II.
“Yea, my reins shall rejoice, when thy lips speak right things.”
“A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength. For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counsellors there is safety.”
In the opening of this series, we saw how greediness and lack of self-control, cut off Judas Iscariot out grace and led to his total destruction. He was mocked by the council members, he had planned to duped. He was ridiculed and put to shame, which led to his suicide on a tree.
While, our today’s text open our eyes to some basic facts about life, in order to avert mockery. It highlights the importance of wisdom, knowledge and good counsel for a graceful and joyful lifetime.
Meanwhile, to be wise is be strong; against the tricks of the enemies. And knowledge is said to be power, that increases your strength. Wise counsel is a pointer to great victory in time of war: therefore in multitude of counsellors there is safety.
Nevertheless, as Christians, we must note that, what we say, is taking into record, as the result of the scripture that says, “…out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” (Matthew 12: 34) And you and I will be judged by what we say, to be our heart condition and intention. Dear friend, and if you don’t watch it, people will mock your Christianity.
In conclusion, let ensure we say what is right always at the right time. And once, we are known for saying the right thing always, it will be had for anyone to lied against you or to mock you. May God keep our thoughts in righteousness in Jesus name. Amen.
God bless you. *Jesus is coming very soon.* Be prepared.
I will say the right thing always. And the righteous shall rejoice with me.
Father, you are the only wise God. Keep me in righteousness with wisdom, knowledge and wise counsel all the days of my life in Jesus name. Amen.
