Scripture: Wisdom of Solomon 1:13-15, 2:23-24
The Wisdom of Solomon is a book that is not found in most people’s Bibles. I find it pretty sad since it is such a great inspirational book. Although I do not claim to be a Bible scholar so if you know why it is not included please lt me know.
It says God did not make death and does not delight in the death of the living. Death is not our natural state we were not created to die. It is a poison. We are all infected with a poison that will eventually lead us all to distruction. We are getting consumed by greed, envy, pride, lust, along with countless other things. These things take over our lives and consume everything good about us until we have nothing righteous left in our lives.
When humanity decided to become their own god we decided to keep company with the advisary or the enemy instead of the Creator. The Creator is the source of life, if we keep company with Him we are filled with light and life. The flip side is when we run from God and keep company with the devil, focusing our live on our own personal satisfaction we are slowly consumed. The company of the devil is like a parisite sucking the life out of humanity.
Today consider the company that you are keeping. Are we filling our lives with God, or are we consuming the poison of evil lusts.
