    "..THE COVETOUS WHOM THE LORD ABHORRETH" This is a part that many might think strange, or inconsistent with the New Testament dispensation of mercy and grace. But such thinking is really inconsistent with the moral excellence and love of the truth in God. Our lives do not consist in those things we would lust after, or possess, or how through them we would hope to be admired and accepted by men.

    Jacoba - You are both right in your teaching. There are many reasons why God does a lot of things and He does it all for His own glory whether out of compassion or to show His power or for our good etc. Let's add John 9:1-3 to the discussion. This is e-home cell we have online I enjoy the contributions. Let's continue to glean through scriptures to build ourselves up in all humility.
