This evil scheme can wreck you …
Matthew Kratz once told in a sermon the fable of three apprentice devils who were coming to earth to finish their apprenticeships. They were talking to Satan, the chief of the devils, about their plans to tempt and ruin humankind.
The first said, “I will tell them there is no God.”
Satan said, “That will not delude many, for they know there is a God.”
The second said, “I will tell humans there is no hell.”
Satan answered, “You will deceive no one that way; humans know even now that there is a hell for sin.”
The third said, “I will tell humans there is no hurry.”
“Go,” Satan said, “and you will ruin men by the thousands!”
One of the most dangerous of all delusions is the lie that there’s plenty of time.
“Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom,” Psalm 90:12.
Are you wasting the time God has given you, or spending it wisely?
