Isaiah 3-4, Acts 17:16-34
9For the look on their faces bears witness against them;
they proclaim their sin like Sodom;
they do not hide it.
Woe to them!
For they have brought evil on themselves.
10Tell the righteous that it shall be well with them,
for they shall eat the fruit of their deeds.”
I have to acknowledge that this makes me uncomfortable. I don’t want people to have to eat the fruit of their deeds because I know it will be bad for them.
I am encouraged by the remark “tell the righteous it will be well with them.” Lord, help me know what it is to be righteous in a world where things are confusing. Help me know You well enough that I know what You ask me to do.
25nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything.
I love this description of God. God doesn’t need ANYTHING from us. And, I love how Paul points out His nature: He is a GIVER. He gives life! Breath! EVERYTHING. Everything comes from our giving God. He gives, and gives, and gives. He asks nothing in return. He offers with no strings attached. He is good. ❤️ Praise our good, giving God.
