Week 16 Day 5
Finding God in the Mysteries of every day
Proverbs 27: 3 Stone is heavy and sand a burden,
but a fool’s provocation is heavier than both.
The job description of many in media seems to be to provoke enough people to create enough confusion to gather an audience of people who otherwise would probably prefer tp remain indifferent to what ever “issues” they are trying to drag into the light. Most are truly acting the “fool” in the Biblical sense of the word. (Hebrew nabal) The word literally means -stupid, foolish, evil. For a true character assessment see 1st Samuel 25: 3 His name was Nabal (he) was surly and mean in his dealings—he was a Calebite. These days, with an important election in the offing and great unrest in every quarter, I believe it is critical that Christians, and by that I mean those who believe orthodox Christianity (See the Apostle’s Creed), that Jesus was and is the Lord of heaven and earth, was born of a virgin, was crucified and resurrected, and that His Holy Spirit is present and active in the hearts of those who have received Jesus as their Savior, should fall to our faces praying for clarity and guidance though the maze of misrepresentation, misinterpretation, and outright lying that we might discern the truth and be guided into that truth by the Spirit of Christ (See John 16:13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.)
