What sorrow for those who say that evil is good and good is evil, that dark is light and light is dark, that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter.
What sorrow for those who are wise in their own eyes and think themselves so clever.
Isaiah 5:20-21 New Living Translation (NLT)
We were each given a means to discern right from wrong. Whether it is eyes to see or ears to hear, or whatever tweaks our conscious ability to compare, somehow we all know the difference between good and bad. I find comfort in the fact that we don't have to judge anybody else because we are not in charge. I am also comforted in my belief that God looks into minds and hearts, and He examines motive and intent. No matter how hard we try deceive ourselves or anybody else, rest assured God knows everything and He will not be mocked. This makes it easier to let Him handle everything, especially the bad stuff.
The Good News is that we are all offered the opportunity to change and be transformed into people who accept that we are being closely observed by God, even as we sometimes try to hide from the truth. We can be forgiven. Christ paid the price for this gift with His blood if we believe in Him and accept Him as our Savior. He is our Righteous Judge and His love is unconditional.
It is pretty simple: We are not operating this vehicle called life, no matter how well we think we can drive. We may as well let Jesus take the wheel in order to reach our destination safely. He has already demonstrated His power and love for all who believe in who He is. And He promises to take good care of us forever.
