The wicked plots against the righteous and gnashes his teeth at him, but the Lord laughs at the wicked, for he sees that his day is coming. —Psalm 37:12-13

            Plain and simply there are wicked people who actually do plot “against the righteous.”  They hate who God is and they hate God’s people, but they do not leave it there.  These wicked seethe with hatred and are actively against those who seek to live right before our Lord God Almighty.

            Who are these wicked?  It is those who promote abortion.  It is those who promote sexual perversions.  It is those who seek to destroy God’s design of marriage.  It is those who promote false gods of whatever sort.  It is those who advocate the dishonoring of parents.  It is those who encourage disrespect for authority.  It is those who seek to disrupt society with riotous activity.  It is those who blaspheme our Lord’s Name.  It is those who encourage the taking of others property and will not work themselves.  It is those who promote discontentment with what one has or does.  It is any of those who blatantly stand against the righteousness of God.

            We need to pray for these people and seek to share the gospel with them.  There is “the hope that God may grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth. Then they will come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, who has taken them captive to his will” (II Timothy 2:26).  We need to warn the wicked of the Day of Judgment coming upon them if they do not repent and follow our Lord.  Let us boldly do so!

Dear Father may I faithfully share Your gospel with all that I can.  Please help me to boldly do so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGCZsZMgrXE
