No Need to Wonder

And this house will become a heap of ruins; everyone who passes by will be astonished and hiss and say, “Why has the Lord done thus to this land and to this house?” – 1 Kings 9:8

As a warning to King Solomon and the Israelites (should they disobey His laws), God gave a picture of the future destruction of the temple in Jerusalem. He wanted them to know that the building would not guarantee His presence or blessing. Only obedience could do that.

Like a pile of stones, my own country seems to be crumbling morally and socially. Most people seem to be ignorant of the destruction, but for others the reasons are evident. Many would even argue that “destruction” of absolute ideas of morality need to be torn down. Fact is, if America falls apart, those who follow Christ should never wonder “Why did the LORD do this?”

Disobedience brings destruction.

Sow a thought and you reap an action; sow an act and you reap a habit; sow a habit and you reap a character; sow a character and you reap a destiny. – Emerson
