The Weight Of Our Culture

16 Apr

The Weight Of Our Culture…

Proverbs 16:11 says “A just balance and scales belong to the LORD; All the weights of the bag are His concern.” The weights of the bag were the standard measures used on the scale.

Proverbs 20:23 says, “Differing weights are an abomination to the LORD.” Other ways of defining weights, are standards or values.

One of the signs that a civilization is corrupted, or in moral decay, is the sign of altered weights or values. When values are changed, standards are lowered, and words are redefined: fornication becomes living together, sin becomes a disease, adultery becomes an extramarital affair, and perversity becomes alternate lifestyles.

When morality is redefined as intolerance, when an unborn baby is called ‘just a fetus,’ or a pregnancy can be terminated, it shows there’s corruption in the society.

We as believers have to be all the more grounded in eternal truth. Altered weights are an abomination to God. The weights belong to Him.

Don’t alter them, don’t dilute them, don’t change them. You are called to be a keeper of the weights of God.

You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. James 4:4

Today, choose to stand firm in God’s Word, stand strong against the corruptions of our culture, and strong for the truth.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
