The wrath of man doesn’t work
the righteousness of God
Angry reaction never produce right results
Losing one’s temper can never achieve anything,
least of all the righteousness of God in our life.
If you get angry at me
you won’t gain a thing but losses
If I get angry at You
I won’t gain a thing but losses
We want what is right & profitable in our life
The only thing that’s right & profitable
Are God’s truth, God’s ways & God’s righteousness
Another way of saying it is
Two wrong don’t make a right
The first wrong is bad
The second wrong is actually worse
Jesus exemplifies “an eloquent silence.”
could have opened Pilate eyes at his mock trial.
He could have opened the high priests & Pharisees eyes
when they scoffed Him & beat & spit on Him
He could have brought a flaming fire down on them.
He could have brought legion upon legion
of mighty angels, standing with swords drawn,
from the unseen world to materialize right before their eyes.
He might have told them of a throne,
high & lifted up beyond a billion teeming
galaxies in space.
He might have answered Pilate’s cynical question
“What is truth?”
by an exposition of all of the follies
of all of the philosophers of Athens & Rome.
What we’re seeing in our present culture will
changes nothing for the better but for the worse
We need the righteousness of God
Twisted perverted wickedness brings chaos
destruction, multiplied hatred & more bloodshed
All the appeasing virtue signaling
of it is foolishness
