Pr. 29:6: “By transgression an evil man is snared, but the righteous sings and rejoices.”
Well, all I can see in my mind this morning are the Three Little Pigs dancing around with fiddle and flute rejoicing in song after the Big Bad Wolf burned his bottom in the fire.
When we choose to live in a sinful state, we set a trap for ourselves. The Big Bad Wolf didn’t come after the pigs just 1 time. He kept coming. The pigs weren’t too smart the first 2 times, but on the 3rd time, they set a trap.
Perhaps the snare we set for ourselves is a broken relationship. Perhaps people lose their trust in us. Maybe it’s a loss of hope or self-control. Sometimes sin can actually lead to jail, hospitalization, or death.
When we choose not to sin, but to trust that God will meet our needs, then we are able to sing and rejoice in God’s glory and provision.
The pigs danced around singing, “Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Wolf, the Big Bad Wolf, the Big Bad Wolf? Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Wolf? Tra-la-la-la-laa.” That’s a catchy little tune.
I have a catchy tune for the righteous to sing today (attached below): “The Name of the Lord is Great! The Name of the Lord is Great! The Name of the Lord is Great, and greatly to be praised!”
Sing and rejoice with me today!!
