Truth or Consequences

When I was young, one of my step fathers would occasionally punish me in a very peculiar way.  Sometimes he would make me pick my own punishment.  The only stipulation was that it had to fit within what he thought was appropriate for whatever it was I had done.  I’m not sure why he did that, and 30 years later I can still remember being stuck with the dilemma….  What if I picked something that was even worse than what he would have picked?  Of course, if I picked something too easy, then he’d get really mad!  The choice was almost as bad as the punishment itself.  I guess it’s fortunate for us that our heavenly Father doesn’t work that way.  God gives us freedom of choice in how we will respond to His commands, but He alone picks the punishment if it’s due.

“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness”  Romans 1:18

In Christ,
