ECWA FOOD FOR THE DAY - Thursday 28th October 2021

TOPIC: THE GODLY ARE SCARCE TEXT: PSALM 12 : 1 - 8 Look around and you will find that it is becoming more and more difficult to trust even those you call 'fellow brethren'. This is despite the fact that trust is a major factor in human relationships. The Psalmist began by calling out to God for help (vs. 1). The godly and the faithful are becoming more and scarce among men because many people have chosen to live on lies. Singles start courtship on a foundation of lies. Politicians get into leadership positions by telling lies. Truth has become so old fashioned that only a few people stick to it. The Psalmist offers a prayer in verse 3 which we seriously need to consider. The good side of this passage is that the Lord will keep His people safe and protect them from liars. Liars are popular because people of the world love what is mostly abominable to God.

QUESTION Would you prefer to be among the few godly men than belong to the majority that are liars? PRAYER Dear Father, I want to be among the few godly people in this generation that does not celebrates evil. Teach me to stick to the truth even when the majority is doing the contrary in Jesus name, Amen.
