Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.
Earlier, we saw how the heart of David longed to know of Yah’s limitations and prescribed boundaries.
He did this for one purpose:
David did not want to be ashamed when he measured his life against the commandments of the Most High.
How many of us feel shame when we break a commandment? How many of us really feel sorrow when we measure our ways according the Yah’s standard?
Are we ashamed of what we allowed to desecrate our temples? Or are we like the children of Israel before their exile to Babylon?
Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? No! They were not at all ashamed, nor did they know how to blush.
In the West, we have become so calloused to sin. We don’t even bat an eye at the skin on the screen in front of us. We rationalize our profanity and vice, plastering the wall with whitewash.
It’s such a far cry from the heart that the Father desires.
Let’s not fool ourselves into thinking that we can escape the consequences.
“Therefore they shall fall among those who fall; In the time of their punishment they shall be cast down,” says the LORD.
