“Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight…” Isaiah 40:4
Did you know that a Nigerian prince needs your help? That’s right. For just a small investment now, you can reap enormous stacks of cash later. Or have you heard that Tom Thumb, or HEB, or well…pick any popular shopping market, will give you a $500 coupon just for posting an ad on your FB page? Not only that, Bill Gates is sending everyone who “likes” a particular post tons of money.
We live in a crooked world. Blackmail, extortion, scams, hustles, and bribes abound. Everyone seems to be in on the take, and upright dealings seem to be a thing of the past. But these crooked dealings are not pleasing to God. Proverbs states that the Lord “hates dishonest scales, but accurate weights are his delight.” Cheating others displays a disdain not only for our fellow man, but for God. But when the Lord returns, He vows to make the crooked straight. In this world, deception and crooked dealings are commonplace and often praised, but when the Messiah returns, He will put an end to such dishonesty. In the meantime, don’t send any money to Nigerian princes.
