A Fitting Memory Verse
01/24/2006 - James WhiteI apologize for having missed last week. I leave for the UK in two weeks and trying to get everything accomplished and ready--well, hey, even Pyromaniac has gone to the "team blog" approach (yeah, I've asked some of the guys who write stuff for this blog, but they all fear my red pen too much, so I muddle on alone!), so obviously time is at a premium. Anyway, in the mornings as I get caught up, a little, on what is going on in the world, and as I see the seething hatred of everything that is good and honorable and just on the part of major segments of our society, I cannot help but think of this verse. It's not the most popular, but goodness, it speaks so directly to our every day experience, I thought you might want to add it to your list:
Psalm 12:8 (NASB): The wicked strut about on every side when vileness is exalted among the sons of men.
And a little more fluid translation:
The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men. (NIV)
