Peace and Security or Fear and Destruction

 

     The Scriptures repeatedly seek to emphasize the profound difference between the righteous and the wicked.

     Jeremiah, for example, uses the images of a tree planted by waters and a useless shrub in the barren desert.  One is blessed and one is cursed (Jeremiah 17:5-8).

     In Proverbs 10, Solomon envisions the landscape after the passing of a whirlwind—the wicked are no more, and the righteous are untouched (v. 25).  The worst fears of the wicked come to pass; the holy desires of the righteous are granted (v. 24).

     Righteous or wicked.  Peace or fear.  Security or Destruction.

     It’s your call.
