9 I also said, “What you are doing is not good! You should be living in fear of our God, so that our pagan enemies won’t have grounds for deriding us.
I think of this verse alot, especially when in a moment of anger I step across that line into sinfulness. Everything I do that is adverse to the Word promotes sin in our world, thus giving fuel to that sect of people who deny God. Conversely our world today is dying from a lack of knowledge of the Word, so that my actions might be the only bible some people see. Abba keep me whole in your hand and guide me before others and You that I do not bring you shame.
