Mockery

Proverbs 14:9 “Fools make a mockery at sin: but among the righteous there is favour.”

Hold this nugget of truth in your hand whether you are in either group: a mocker, or an upright person. Wait! Really? Regretfully, those who mock sin think that they are being right. The Bible defines such thinking as foolish. The definition here in this verse is fool.

In this year, 2013, so many things have been up-side-down in so many instances it makes my heart very heavy. Same-sex marriage is one of those issues that blatantly mocks sin. Another mockery is the availability at tax payer expense the license to promiscuity. Chastity is mocked, laid aside, or downright ridiculed. Telling the truth is veiled in half truth. If something is half true, it is also half false. That would be a lie. Religious freedom is certainly frayed at the edges. This is just a start on a long list of mockery at sin that is prevalent in our country right now. Prevalent. Publicly mocked on major network television.

In my opinion, we would be much better off reading the book of Proverbs repeatedly and leave the television turned to “off.”

“Among the righteous there is favour,” completes this contrasting proverb. Check yourself now. It is easier to make a mock at sin than you think! Staying on the righteous side in a corrupt world of electronics is not as easy as one thinks. Satan loves the slippery slopes of borderline stuff. If a caution sign flies up in your path, you may need to turn to the righteous side. You won’t regret it.

That’s my nugget of truth from my personal Bible reading today. I do not want the word, fool beside my name. Nope. I choose God’s favour.

    That’s the main reason I do not watch any of today’s “sitcoms.” They either present an ungodly lifestyle as comedy instead of shame, or they make fun of the head of the household and portray him as an idiot. Nope, I don’t have time for that sort of thing, and I think if the world would focus on what’s right instead of what’s foolish, God would be much more greatly honored! Thank you for speaking up!

  2. Glenda, remember when then candidate Obama mocked the people of PA for clinging to their Bibles and guns? I don’t understand the hardness of heart that exists in America to tolerate such mockery. Oh the price that will be paid if repentance does not happen.
