The Lord reigns; let the people tremble!
When my oldest child was about five she was having a particularly bad day. One thing led to another and I decided “time out” was my best resort. She was sentenced to five minutes of silence in her room. We are not talking about sitting in a chair for five minutes. Or, not having anything to do for five minutes. Just, go to your room and be quiet for five minutes. Three hours later I emerged the victor when she was finally released from her room, having just completed her punishment.
Lesson learned for child: Mom’s not kidding.
God isn’t kidding either.
Those Ten Commandments. Really, He is not fooling around.
Love your neighbor. No joke, He’s serious.
No gods before Him. Really, that includes all of our TVs and electronic toys.
The Lord reigns!
And, it makes me tremble to think of the consequences of where our society is leading us.
Lord, have mercy on us and on our nation. Amen
