01/09/2018 -- Shame on the Insolent -- Psalm 119:78
Let the insolent be put to shame because they have wronged me with falsehood; as for me I will meditate on your precepts.
No one was ever more contemptuously wronged than Jesus. The arrogant rulers of the Jews on false charges sentenced the righteous Son of God to death. Justly they will be put to shame. But in the world in which we live, it will happen time and time again. The arrogant resort to lies to preserve themselves and wrong the righteous. When this happens the righteous must not fall to the same depths or resort to the same schemes. Persecuted or not, we must constantly meditate on the precepts of the Lord. They should be our meditation all the day.
