When you walk into the home of a friend as an invited dinner guest, generally you are mindful of where you are and how to behave, or are you? You don’t bark out orders to get this or that, or do you? You don’t order food like you are in a restaurant; you don’t help yourself to the washing machine, you don’t decide on a new color scheme for the den, and you surely don’t move the aloe plant to another location, or have you?
Why then, if you so act respectful as a matter of common decency, do you equally insult the earth and its Homeowner by not behaving, barking out orders as if God is your Butler, while accepting all food from His hands, availing yourself of His colors above and below, and are just all around indecent as if your willful trespassing is not a crime?
Yes, a trespasser. Therefore a criminal. Trouble is, man compares himself with others, and gets a false vision of himself. Not too smart. Want to know what level is? Don’t take my word for it, get a level. The crooked ways of others will always make yourself appear more sober or straight.
Saw a vid the other day of Bill Nye and his egotistical claims that he knows more than God. Oh how I loathe such pretended intellect, yet I think of the patience of Almighty God who allows such creatures to spew such raw sewage and still walk like ants on a hill without God stepping on the mound.
His patience in light of such blatant pride is truly otherworldly. What men know can fit on the head of a pin compared to God’s infinite wisdom, (yes, this includes the mindless intertubes with its instant googles) yet mankind has managed to put God under his thumb. Hmmm, when will men learn.
But a guest! That’s what we are, stewards of Another’s property, yet men have tricked themselves into thinking that THEY are the great engineers, that THEY have all the copyrights to trees, mountains, clouds, birds, whales, and DNA itself.
Sorry folks, man is made in the image of God, an image which we have tainted purposefully, and have been duped to fall for the image on the coin. The next time you dine, consider the delicacies of the Creator, and how He actually waits on us………
