And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. –Genesis 6:5

And it repented the LORD that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart. –Genesis 6:6

The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. –Genesis 6:11

Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For He maketh sore, and bindeth up: He woundeth, and His hands make whole. –Job 5:17-18

 

But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. –Matthew 6:15

Praying the world will read God's Word for themselves, and not rely on what someone else tells them His Word says or means.

  1. I love this reminder from Genesis that the earth was corrupt before God. I find it such a relief that we aren’t expected to fix eternal problems, we’re just expected to love and forgive. Amen to that.

  2. I honestly don’t know how we humans can forget the wrongs we’ve suffered. The recent dinner with Kevin showed me I have the forgiving thing going but I can’t forget the events. It’s the same with other things. I’m not angry about them any more but I remember them.

  3. Matthew 6:15 tell and show us how important it is to forgive; yet, people fail to apply this aspect in their life. Some forgive, but never forget and they wonder why they’re constantly bitter. I’ve seen it too many times. And you’ve blessed me with a beautiful and tranquil photo this morning. :)

    1. I know especially when it says, “neither will your Father forgive your trespasses” So, it seems if we truly WANT forgiveness then we HAVE to forgive(and forget) And you are absolutely right if we don’t it just fills us with bitterness. So, happy you liked the photo, another one from our holiday :):)

  4. These scriptures also sound like the world today doesn’t it? I’m so thankful He corrects us when we fall short and puts us back on the straight and narrow path. I love Him so much! All the praise and glory to our God!

    1. Yes it does. When people say this world is getting so bad, I always say, have you read the Bible? We haven’t changed much since the beginning of our creation. He is so faithful to keep us on the good path, He wants none of us to perish. God Bless you, and thank you for stopping in, and sharing your insight, it is always welcome :):)

    1. hahah I know Jo Ann, I was reading that thinking, wait a minute, we are 6 chapters in, ONLY 6 chapters, and we are already so corrupt, evil, and violent that it grieved God at His heart for even making us, and wiped us out. 6 chapters, page 9 in my Bible and it has 1918 pages. We made it to page 9. Even after that flood, we, well, didn’t change much.
