Fine, Medium, Course or Extra Course?
Psa 18:25 With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright;
Psa 18:26 With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.
We serve a righteous, holy God. Yet He is so very loving, merciful and forgiving.
A piece of sand paper is just a smooth piece of paper on one side, but the other side can really remove some hide, if you know what I mean. The Lord is kind of like that. If we are merciful, upright and pure, He will show Himself likewise to us. But if we become froward, that is, torturous, then the sandpaper is turned to the rough side and guess what? We will see the rough side of the Lord!
It is like what Jesus said of Himself in Luke 20:18 Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
Depending on how you respond to God and how you treat others is how you will be rewarded from heaven.
So, which side of the sandpaper will we choose today?
