“Feeling Right Is Not the Same As Being Right 感覺對的與就是對的絶不一樣“（Matthew 馬太福音 24:48-51）
But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, “My master is staying away a long time,” and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Too many Christians want to enjoy the thrill of feeling right but are not willing to endure the inconvenience of being right! They habitually weep and pray over beautiful truth, only to draw back from that same truth when it comes to the difficult job of putting it in practice. The average church simply does not dare to check its practices against biblical precepts. It tolerates things that are diametrically opposed to God’s will. The mind can approve and the emotions enjoy while the will drag its feet and refuses to go along! Thus it is justifiable to question whether those divided souls have ever made a true commitment to Lord Jesus or not.
Prayer: Dear Lord Jesus, indeed we might be willing to pay a small price for your abundant blessings but reluctant to carry our own cross at any expense. In fact, it is not only our sins of commission but also our sins of omission for which we will account and be judged. Forgive us if we had been among those hypocrites and help us to resume our role and responsibility as your unworthy servants and be your sober, good and faithful stewards of your kingdom. Amen.
