Oh To Be Wise Meditations
Come and look at the house of the righteous. There is much treasure to behold and admire. Everything is in order and nothing is rotting away because of sin. The righteous are rich in good works ready to share there possessions. They are treasuring up for themselves a firm foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life. Moth and rust has not destroyed and thieves have not broken into and stolen. Thats because the righteous don’t waste what is holy on people who are unholy. They protect their precious pearls of faith given by Christ, lest a thief or enemy come and trample it. Better is little with the fear of the Lord than great treasure and trouble therewith. It is the Lord's blessing that makes you wealthy. Hard work can make you no richer. That is something the house of the wicked has not understood. The righteous live in the luxury of the spiritual riches in Christ. Their faith purchased by the blood of Jesus, is far more precious than silver or gold. The house of the righteous stands beautiful and strong to the glory of God. In the house of the wicked though, there is alot of trouble. Just as you walk in, the door of the heart is smashed open. So many thiefs and evil spirits walk in and out daily. It is an astonishing sight to see such riches in a filthy place. You walk around and see name brand furniture with moth and rust. Nothing in this house is safe, all is in the open for evil desire to entice. The fridge is so full of food that much is expired. The righteous have just enough and the food is good to eat. In the back yard is a pit of mud and trash, in here is where much of the wicked get there spiritual food. This house is condemned, basically the wicked live like squatters. The revenue of the wicked has come up short and they owe everything in this house. Soon they will be evicted out to fend for themselves in wicked desires. The righteous have everything paid for through Christ. Not only is He the Landlord but is co-owner of this spiritual house. We were morally bankrupt just like the house of the wicked. But Jesus came and offered to buy our house and give us a new home to live in. Right now the righteous have a deposit down that covers closing cost. But soon, we the righteous, are getting a newly remodeled house whose architect and builder is God. Till then, Jesus is Lord of this spiritual house. He lives in me and sustains me. Making sure I owe nothing but to love my brother and sister. Choose this day who you will serve. As for me and my house, I will serve the Lord.
