How Long Shall My Honor Be Turned Into Shame?

The Lord look on it, and repay! (2 Chronicles 24:22. NKJV.)

When sinned against, how easy is it for the flesh to demand that things be set straight and made right? But God instructs,

Be angry and do not sin; (Ephesians 4:26. ESV.)

Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord. (Romans 12:19. ESV.)

Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing. (1 Peter 3:9. ESV.)

When my 19 year old cousin was murdered I saw wrath, repayment, and wickedness rear their ugly heads...yet no repentance. And how many countless crimes are committed without confession? Just recently a teen was killed in his own home yet no one has come forward to take responsibility or apologize. When lies are spewed, love betrayed, trust abused...acknowledgment, admission of guilt, and heartfelt offering of remorse would be greatly appreciated...yet may not come.

a bruised reed he will not break,and a faintly burning wick he will not quench; he will faithfully bring forth justice. (Isaiah 42:3. ESV.)

a bruised reed he will not break,and a smoldering wick he will not quench,until he brings justice to victory; (Matthew 12:20. ESV.)

Every way of a man is right in his own eyes,
But the Lord weighs the hearts.
To do righteousness and justice
Is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice
. (Proverbs 21:2-3. NKJV.)

Though I am so impatient when I or someone I love is hurt (whether physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually) because of the wicked, God's grace is amazing. A BRUISED REED HE WILL NOT BREAK, AND A FAINTLY BURNING WICK HE WILL NOT QUENCH!


For the wages of sin is death, but the FREE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS our Lord. (Romans 6:23. ESV.)

Porque la paga del pecado es muerte, mas la dádiva de Dios es vida eterna en Cristo Jesús Señor nuestro. (Romanos 6:23).

對於工資罪是死的,但自由的恩賜,上帝是永恆的生命在基督耶穌我們的主。 (羅馬書 6:23)。

पाप की मजदूरी तो मृत्यु है, लेकिन मुफ्त उपहार परमेश्वर हमारे प्रभु मसीह यीशु में अनन्त जीवन है. (रोम 6:23.)

Ибо возмездие за грех есть смерть, а дар Божий жизнь вечная во Христе Иисусе, Господе нашем. (Римлянам 6:23.)

لأجرة الخطيئة هي الموت ، ولكن هدية مجانية من الله فهي حياة أبدية في المسيح يسوع ربنا. (رومية 06:23).

Porque o salário do pecado é a morte, mas o dom gratuito de Deus é a vida eterna em Cristo Jesus nosso Senhor. (Romanos 6:23).

Kerana upah dosa adalah maut, tetapi karunia Allah ialah hidup yang kekal dalam Kristus Yesus, Tuhan kita. (Rom 6:23.)

Car le salaire du péché c'est la mort, mais le don gratuit de Dieu c'est la vie éternelle en Jésus Christ notre Seigneur. (Romains 6:23).
