Some Just Refuse to Listen
| Nearly everyone has
seen this kind of people. They will not learn. Proverbs 29: 1, "He
that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed
and that without remedy." The people of ancient Israel and Judah were
like that. Stubbornly they marched to their own self-imposed destruction.
God warned and pleaded but they would not listen. Shall we allow ourselves
to be like that?
Proverbs 29: 2 follows, "When the righteous are in authority the people rejoice; but when the wicked beareth rule the people mourn." There are people seeking power who are the very personification of evil because of the anti-God positions they espouse. It does not seem to matter to many. They will not listen to God. Shall we allow ourselves to be like that? It will prove worthwhile to consider this.
