When Will God Lower the Boom?

Why our Eternal God tolerates the wicked people who do wicked things and why does He even seem to tolerate gross wickedness in His children, especially those that continue to live in gross immorality?

Why does He not lower the boom?

And then I realized that a man who wastes his life and all the resources that God gifted him with, sitting in a lazy boy recliner, well why does God not strike him down also?

We look at thinks so differently than God and we judge things differently than God. 

I’ve had multiple Christians tell me without saying so that they had achieved some degree of self-righteousness because they hadn’t killed anybody or raped anybody or stolen from a bank.

And yet from God’s perspective not only are we held accountable for the sins of commission like breaking the moral law, but we are accountable for sins of omission. 

Those are much easier to Ignore. Living your life for self is still self-centered living.

You take the resources and the life that God gave you and your capacity for pleasure and you waste the bulk of it instead of investing in heavenly treasures.

Could it be from God’s perspective, that a man spending his life in a Lazy Boy Recliner is just as great a loss as a man who is in prison for taking the life of another?

We were all created for Christ’s glory!

Lord, please give me the grace to not waste my life.

Amen
