Evildoers Will Not Go Unpunished — Sunday Thought For The Day
We are living in a day and time in which it seems there is no wrong, i.e., evil that a person can commit that will warrant their just punishment.
We see this from the highest levels of government to dishonest business dealings to false teachers spreading blasphemy and heresy.
Virtually every day someone comments on one of my social sites or writes me directly that they are frustrated watching the ungodly go unpunished. Especially those who are unquestionably guilty of wanton criminal acts, be they high-ranking government politicos or a small shop on the corner.
Without exception I tell all who express their frustration about this to me the same thing.
I tell them that we must keep our eyes on the prize. We cannot allow the sin of others to distract us. We are not to become spiritually and emotionally soured by focusing upon the wrong of others juxtaposed to the righteousness of God that we are to cultivate in our daily lives. We are not to wish evil on evildoers.
We are to pray for the lost and unsaved. Christians are to occupy our time on earth reaching others with the good news of Salvation, being about the work and ministry of the Lord.
We are to remember that the evildoers only appear to prosper. Their days on earth are numbered just as are ours. Their eternal future is a set as that of those who are the saved. The difference is where they will spend eternity if they do not confess, repent, and turn from their evil ways.
We should be praying and asking God to touch the hearts of the evildoers so they can spend eternity in heaven. The finality of eternal torment and damnation is something we should not wish nor desire for anyone to experience.
READ: Ecclesiastes 8:11-13
11 Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.
12 Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him:
13 But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God.
