What has it being our relish?

• “When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices; and when the wicked are destroyed, there is singing.” (Pro 11:10).

This should be taken place. Why haven’t being doable to see this in our society? Because, regrettably, the concepts and values have been altered during the years (see Daniel 7:25):

• “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!” (Isa 5:20).

Today, it exists a conspiration against the good (as it came about in Israel):

• “Yea, truth fails; and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. And Jehovah saw, and it displeased Him that there was no judgment.” (Isa 59:15);
• “Yea, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.” (2Tim 3:12).

To exemplify, nowadays, people that work in TV (in special, actors and singers) are gratified with eulogies as if they were gods. And I question: what good did they do to anybody? On the contrary: movies, most of the times, outspread prostitution, witchcraft, violence.

The soap operas, in particular, are expert in change rabble’s opinion. If, in the plot, a wife mistreat the husband and he know a woman that care for him, very soon people start to cheer so that the husband ditches the wife and adulterates with the lover.

Not to mention that the role of the marriage has been weakened by the encomiums directed to the homosexuality and the easiness to get the divorce.

And the worst is that, if someone decide to stick up for what is good and right before the Creator, in a jiffy the governors of this world arise against them until they recant; and, if they don’t, they try do discredit them before society in order to process them or, even, slaughter them.

The history repeats. Although Jesus healed all diseases (including spiritual illness), most of those to whom He cured asked, later, His crucifixion.

And what about us? Are we happy when the righteous prospers or do we take a grudge against them when they tell us off in virtue of a misdeed? May us not have anything to do with the people below:

• “For the terrible one is brought to nothing, and the scorner is destroyed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off; those who make a man guilty by a word, and lay a trap for the reprover in the gate, and turn aside the just for a worthless thing.” (Isa 29:20,21).

So, may you have a week fraught of joy contemplating the destruction of the true evil.
