Our oh so little subtleties (seemingly)
Dear friends, you must NEVER become tired of doing right-2 Thessalonians 3:13 CEV
How quick we are to let our subtleties (things that aren't immediately obvious and or operating in secret) incorporate themselves into our lives. We do so by participating in piracy (the selling and buying of illegally copied movies or music); lying on an application (whatever one that provides aide or one that assist with obtaining a job, car or mortgage); claiming someone else's dependents on your tax return and or changing your arrival or departure time on your time card. All of which make us morally filthy and infused with joy at same time. Isn't it odd that engaging in knowingly wrong activities usually brings about the most satisfaction?
We can see that last sentence come alive right smack in the middle of the Bible if we give Matthew 21:12-13 a closer look. As it turns out people in Jesus' time were so consumed with making their lives more pleasurable that they clearly had no problem with turning the temple into a sanctuary for the thieves that they were. This is also true for those who call themselves co-heirs with Christ in today's age, as we are swift to turn our temples (which are our bodies) into hangouts spots for the devil's footmen with our seemingly little subtleties.
Don't let your quest for immediate gratification keep you from doing what's right!
