Psalm 31:23 ” Love the Lord, all His saints! The Lord preserves the faithful, but the proud He pays back in full.”

We may think that evil is winning, that the world’s moral compass has swung so far off center that there’s no going back. Or that arrogance, conceit, and any disgraceful thing found on the big screen, TV, and Social Media is now considered accepted behaviors and there’s nothing we can do about it. So what can we do as one person? This verse tells us what our role in all this chaos is…it’s to love the Lord! Or as Deuteronomy 6:5 elaborates, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.” To the best of our ability we are to remain blameless, righteous, and with clean hands before Him. So if that’s our role, what’s God’s? It tells us that it’s Him that will repay and fulfill His justice, not us… or as Psalm 94:2 says, “Rise up, O Judge of the earth; pay back to the proud what they deserve.”
