Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

June 29 - Morning

"Out in the open wisdom calls aloud,
she raises her voice in the public square;
on top of the wall she cries out,
at the city gate she makes her speech:

'How long will you who are simple love your simple ways?
How long will mockers delight in mockery
and fools hate knowledge?
Repent at my rebuke!
Then I will pour out my thoughts to you,
I will make known to you my teachings.
But since you refuse to listen when I call
and no one pays attention when I stretch out my hand,
since you disregard all my advice
and do not accept my rebuke,
I in turn will laugh when disaster strikes you;
I will mock when calamity overtakes you—
when calamity overtakes you like a storm,
when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind,
when distress and trouble overwhelm you.'

'Then they will call to me but I will not answer;
they will look for me but will not find me,
since they hated knowledge
and did not choose to fear the Lord.
Since they would not accept my advice
and spurned my rebuke,
they will eat the fruit of their ways
and be filled with the fruit of their schemes.' "

- Proverbs 1:20-31

I Will Laugh and I WIll Mock When Disaster and Calamity Overtake You!    

An amazing set of verses in Proverbs 1:20-31 tell us that God’s truth is constantly walking and
talking among us. In fact, it is raising its voice and crying out in public places and in the midst
of public assemblies. God is NOT hiding! God is NOT silent!

The reason for our not hearing, seeing or perceiving the wisdom of the Lord is we are too
enthralled with our own thoughts and fascinated with our own ways to consider true knowledge
and useful correction. If we would stop and consider the voice of God’s wisdom he would
“pour out” his “thoughts” to us and “make known” his “teachings.”

The harshness of these verses shock us when the text reveals that there is a point of no return.
There is a point where God’s crying out, mercy and willingness to help is shut off. The disastrous results of our own foolish thoughts and rebellious behavior soon follow. But, it is at this point we experience the judgment of the Lord: uncompassionate silence and merciless abandonment.

The book of Proverbs opens with this warning:

“Then they will call to me but I will not answer;
They will look for me but will not find me.”
- Proverbs 1:28

“I in turn will laugh when disaster strikes you;
I will mock when calamity overtakes you!”

- Proverbs 1:26

  Christian Quote from Church History
"For those who have faith,
no explanation is needed, but for those who are skeptical, no explanation is possible."
Something to Ponder??

From David Kinnaman's book
"You Lost Me"

Myth 1: Most people lose their faith when they leave high school.

Reality: There has been considerable attention paid to the so-called loss of faith that happens between high school and early adulthood. Some have estimated this dropout in alarming terms, estimating that a large majority of young Christians will lose their faith. The reality is more nuanced. In general, there are three distinct patterns of loss:

  • prodigals
  • nomads
  • exiles

One out of nine young people who grow up with a Christian background lose their faith in Christianity—a group described by the research team as prodigals In essence, prodigals say they have lost their faith after being a Christian at some time in their past.

More commonly, young Christians wander away from the institutional church—a pattern the researchers labeled nomads. Roughly four out of ten young Christians fall into this category. They still call themselves Christians but they are far less active in church than they were during high school. Nomads have become 'lost' to church participation.

Another two out of ten young Christians were categorized as exiles, those who feel lost between the "church culture" and the society they feel called to influence. The sentiments of exiles include feeling that:

  • "I want to find a way to follow Jesus that connects with the world I live in,"

  • "I want to be a Christian without separating myself from the world around me"

  • "I feel stuck between the comfortable faith of my parents and the life I believe God wants from me."

Overall, about three out of ten young people who grow up with a Christian background stay faithful to church and to faith throughout their transitions from the teen years through their twenties.

David Kinnaman, who directed the research, concluded: "The reality of the dropout problem is not about a huge exodus of young people from the Christian faith. In fact, it is about the various ways that young people become disconnected in their spiritual journey. Church leaders and parents cannot effectively help the next generation in their spiritual development without understanding these three primary patterns. The conclusion from the research is that most young people with a Christian background are dropping out of conventional church involvement, not losing their faith."
