How can this generation be described?
Everything they think or imagine is bent toward evil. They are the very ones who call good evil and evil good. They hate justice and twist all that is right. The leaders who come from this generation make decisions based on lies. After all that they have done – do they really expect God to answer when they call? They have had every opportunity to know the truth, but they want the lies to guide them.
Yet there are some who claim to depend on the Lord. God will bless those who do not turn to the wisdom of this foolish generation, rather they except God’s plan for their lives. Remember that God’s wisdom is shown to be right by the lives of those who follow it. So pay attention to what you hear,and more understanding will be given.
Talk is cheap, so let your words be few, and remember that too many words can make you a fool. So keep your ears open and keep all the promises you make. It is a good thing to accept your lot in life, and the good health to enjoy it. God keeps these people so busy enjoying life that they take no time to brood over the past. Enjoy what you have rather than desiring what you don’t have. Dreaming about nice things is meaningless.
Tell everyone everything God has done for you.
