“He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.”
In the politically correct society we live in, we often strive not to offend those around us. Such a culture has created a tolerance for just about anything.
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!”
Tolerance is simply justifying sin and condemning that which is right.
The Word of God clearly says that it is an abomination to the Lord to do so. He is disgusted when we justify what is wrong or make excuses for our sin.
“These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.”
Are we willing to offend God in order not to offend someone else?
What a high price to pay to be tolerant of those around us.
“Wherefore is there a price in the hand of a fool to get wisdom, seeing he hath no heart to it?”
Wisdom cannot be bought by money, but it does require sacrifice.
Jesus paid the price for us to have Wisdom when He gave His life on Calvary.
God simply wants us to ask Him for Wisdom.
What a pity it is that we often fail to ask Him.
“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.”
He is never offended when we ask for more Wisdom.
Joel | James 2 | Proverbs 15
