Be Like Flowing Water

“Like a muddied spring or a polluted fountain is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked.” ~ Proverbs 25:26

Often times, we as Christians will give in to the pressures of the world and allow sin to be prominent in our nation. When we do that, we become like a muddy spring or a polluted fountain. In other words, we are Spiritually Asleep. We stop working the way the Holy Spirit recreated us to. When we fall spiritually asleep our soul becomes at risk for spiritual death.

We begin to make excuses for sin because we don’t want to offend anyone or “force our faith on others.” We want to be liked by all, but Jesus told us something fundamental, “if you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.” We are not of the world, so why do we destroy our righteousness to become accepted by the world? Is it really worth it to become like stagnant water before the LORD?

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Be Like Running Water.
