He siteth in the lurking places of the villages; in the secret places doth he murder the innocent; his eyes are privily set against the poor. He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den; he lieth in wait to catch the poor; he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net. He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones.
Today's message is applicable to the evil conditions that are occurring in our nation today. I make this claim because the out of control drug trafficking, alcohol and substance abuse and the negative affects it has on our respective communities. More families have been destroyed by this evil and the emotional scars and the destruction that is left on families, communities and our churches are grievous. The devastating affects will be felt for years. Drug traffickers prey on the young, poor and the vulnerable without regard to the negative affects his or her evil business will cause.
We see oppressive acts in other areas of our society such as some of our wealthier American taking advantage of the less fortunate and see no harm in doing so and show little to no compassion for the less fortunate. These individuals fail to realize that one day they will be held accountable by God and their final end will be destruction.
These questions come to mind, What is the motivating factor behind such evil and wrong doings? Greed and a lack of compassion are motivating factors in acts of oppression and other wrong doings. These individuals want to be some kind of god and will stop at noting to make themselves superior to all whom they can control. What are the less fortunate and young to do? Those persons must know they are being targeted by the evildoers and do not have their best interest at heart.
Keep control of your mind; put your trust in God; there is a better day ahead. Education is the key to a better tomorrow.
Today's wicked deeds are forms modern day slavery, recognize them for what they are.
