Brown Spots...

When the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence...
you never know what brown spots may be lurking


We live in an imperfect world...
it is dirty, sinful, depraved

No matter where we may live...
no matter how beautiful a place may be

We may not always see them...
but, if you peer closely...
there are brown spots everywhere among the green grass

The whole world suffers from the brown spots of depravity...
causing even the most lovely places in the world to suffer the consequences...
of the deadness of man's love for mankind...
the deadness of man's love for God...
the deadness of man's love for His creation

These dead, brown spots bring crime and chaos...
suffering, shame...
unlovely spots among the green grass

And, on a world of depravity and hatred towards God...
the brown spots grow larger as the end of time looms closer

Perhaps, this is why God tells His people...

Let not thine heart envy sinners:
but be thou in the fear of the Lord all the day long.
Proverbs 23:17

 They that forsake the law praise the wicked:
but such as keep the law contend with them.

For evil men understand not judgment:
but they that seek the Lord shall understand all things.

Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness,
than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.
Proverbs 28:4-6

And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgement,
that wickedness was there;
and the place of righteousness,
that iniquity was there.

I said in my heart,
God shall judge the righteous and the wicked:
for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.
Ecclesiastes 3:15,16

May the Lord bless you with His saving grace and bring you into a new world that
shines with the righteousness of Christ.
