Today’s Reading: Ps 119:1-8; Leviticus 26:34-46; 1 John 2:7-17
Blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord. Ps 119:1
We must understand something, that judgment is woven into the creation of this world. We can’t escape it. It’s part of God’s creation. That’s why the Bible says that we will reap what we sow. And we can either live in the judgment of this world or we can live in judgment of this world. We live in judgment of this world by living loving the Creator, not the creation, by living in His way not the way of this world. Leviticus 26 says that even the sound of a rustling leaf will send the disbelieving and disobedient running, but God will not forsake nor forget those who repent of their disbelief and disobedience. We live in what we love. John writes, “And the world with its lust is passing away, but the one who does God’s will remains forever.” 1 John 2:17. Remember that judgment is woven into creation. We can run from God, but we can’t get away. Today we can live in the judgment or in judgment. Love God!
