Judgment is coming. Be sure you are ready today to settle your account tomorrow.
So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God. Romans 14:12
It seems like the entire world is in chaos. Evil prevails. But there will come a time when wrong is set right! I’m reminded of a story about an old farmer whose field bordered his neighbor’s. On the Lord’s Day, the old farmer never worked, but his neighbor always did. The farmer worked hard, but the loss of time cost him. In the end, his fall harvest wasn’t as profitable as his neighbor’s. The neighbor pointed this out to the old farmer and said, “God seems to bless me even though I haven’t honored the Lord’s Day.”
To which the old farmer replied, “God doesn’t settle all of His accounts in October!”
There will be an accounting—if not today, then tomorrow. Judgment is coming. Because God is just. Be sure you are ready today to settle your account tomorrow.
