Proverbs 28:26-28 He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered. He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse. When the wicked rise, men hide themselves: but when they perish, the righteous increase.
Could you imagine a world with no crime? There would be no murders, no theft, no rape, no drugs, and no crime of any type anywhere. What a different world this would be. There would be no need for police. Since there is no crime of any kind, when City officials hung traffic signals and signs, people would just obey them all. There would be no need for military might in any country. All countries would abide by borders and boundaries that were dictated by other countries and their people. In addition, since there is no crime, all any country would ever need would be civil laws. There would never be any beating of women or children, and no over taxing of citizens. Taxes and tax laws would be sensible, and all people would be glad to pay their share to help support this perfect government. No one would cheat on taxes so we would have no need for the IRS. A few accountants to count the money and deposit it in the banks would suffice. The FBI, CIA and all such agencies would be extinct. Finally, the evening news would have to report on some good things for a change.
You probably have sat there and said, “Right, in your dreams preacher.” Well you are right, it is within my dreams. I look forward to a place called heaven where God rules and there is no more sin. Oops, I am sorry. We do not like to call it sin anymore now do we. Instead, we would rather just call it crime or social imbalance. It just sounds less religious.
THE WORD WALKING IN ME:
How wonderful this world would be if we had no sin. Nevertheless, the reality is that there still is sin in this old world today. Our nation’s leaders need our prayers and support as they do their best to lead us to a safer and happier place to live. God is still in control, but He’s given us the rights to self-govern. We must pray for, vote for, and support Godly leadership.
