Welcome to the fifteenth post in the My Little Devotional series.
I know that it has been a while since I last wrote anything in my blog but, hey, a lot’s been going on and I was feeling pretty sick for a while (although, I cannot say that I am feeling a hundred-percent better).
But, that is beside the point. The point is, here is the post and it is quite an interesting anecdote I have in-store for you guys today. I’m not going to prolong it much further so, here it goes:
An old legend recounts how Satan once called together three of his top aides so that they might make a plan about how to stop the effective outreach of a particular group of Christians.
One of the aides, Rancor, proposed, ‘We should convince them there is no God.’ Satan sneered at Rancor and replied, ‘That would never work. They know there’s a God.’
Bitterness then spoke up, ‘We’ll convince them that God does not really care about right or wrong.’ Satan thought about the idea for a few moments but then rejected it. ‘Too many know that God cares,’ he finally said.
Malice then proposed his idea. ‘We let them go on thinking there is a God and that He cares about right and wrong. But…we will keep whispering that there is no hurry, there is no hurry, there is no hurry.’
Satan howled with delight! The plan was adopted, and Malice was promoted to an even higher position in Satan’s malevolent heirarchy.
Who can tell how many souls have been lost or lives sorely wounded because someone has held to the acceptable notion: Delay is OK.
