This morning in my quiet time with God, these verse came out to me with a thought: “This is why we have what we have in America today.” Children brought up without discipline, who believe everything they are told by their teachers, the media, the government, etc. They are lazy, irresponsible and demanding; expecting everything to be given to them. Their minds have become resistant to the Word of God which would instruct them in how to be responsible, productive and able to serve and help others. Therefore, they a have a veil that covers their minds so that they cannot understand the truth.
Those who spare the rod of discipline, hate their children. Those who love their children care enough to discipline them.
Only simpletons believe everything they’re told!
Godliness makes a nation great.
Lazy people want much.
2 Corinthians 3:14
People whose minds are hardened to the Word of God have a veil that covers their minds so they cannot understand the truth. And this veil can be removed only by believing in Jesus Christ and what He teaches.
Satan, who is the ‘god of this world,’ has blinded the minds of unbelievers. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Lord’s Good News.
