“WORD FOR THE WEEK”

Obadiah, verses 15-18 (NIV): 15)The day of the Lord is near for all nations. As you have done, it will be done to you; your deeds will return upon your own head.
16) Just as you drank on my holy hill, so all the nations will drink continually; they will drink and drink and be as if they had never been.
17) But on Mount Zion will be deliverance; it will be holy, and the house of Jacob will possess its inheritance.
18) The house of Jacob will be a fire and the house of Joseph a flame; the house of Esau will be stubble, and they will set it on fire and consume it. There will be no survivors from the house of Esau.  The Lord has spoken.
 
This say a lot all by itself.  We as children of God must be careful of our treatment of one another.  God is not pleased when we get so high and mighty in our own self righteousness that we look down on others, or rejoice in the misfortunes of others. Be mindful for what you do will come back to you.
 
A humble person is more secure that a proud person because humility gives a more accurate perspective of oneself and the world.  Our true confidence is in God.
V.L.S.-“Through all of my imperfections, my faults, and my failures; God will cover me afresh.”
