A Matter of Time

635926994092832926-AP-People-OJ-Simpson.1When I was a little boy, I stole a plum from H. G Hills at 20th and Charlotte. Now  over sixty years later whenever I pass the plum department at Publix, I recall that heist.  As far as I can remember, the plum caper was my first “official” sin; there have been many more since that day.  Most of them I prefer not to write about.

God is pretty up-front about what he blesses and what He doesn’t.  From one end of the Bible to the other, it is as obvious as dirt that He never blesses behavior that is contrary to his will.  He never has and never will, because He can’t. It is against his nature.  If a person lies, cheats and steals to get to the top, but does lots of good stuff in the process and prays every day for God to bless him, I’m betting that the blessing will never come.   Sooner or later, the chickens will come home to roost.  It is just a matter of time.

I watched ESPN’s five-part series about O. J. Simpson. I was amazed at how a guy who looked so good was actually so very bad. I believe that he got away with a double murder. But he did not get away with a two-bit incident in Las Vegas. Instead of a slap on the hands he got 33 years. In life often it is just a matter of time.
