Payday Someday

And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment…, Hebrews 9:27.

For it is written:
“As I live, says the Lord,

Every knee shall bow to Me,
And every tongue shall confess to God.”

So then, every one of us shall give account of himself to God, Roman 14:11, 12.

Over the last few days, we’ve had a garage sale to pare down some of the things we’re going to have to move, and to make a few bucks to help with said move.   We had stuff spread out in the driveway, the garage, the kitchen and the living room.  We had lots of people stop by.  Except for one thing, it was thoroughly enjoyable. At some time, someone helped themselves to a laptop computer that was NOT part of the sale.  I never gave it a single thought or I would have put it away, but I left it out where they could see it.  They saw it and they took it.

Thank the Lord, there was nothing personal on it yet; I had just gotten it.  Still, it was saddening to me.  That person will ultimately pay far more for that laptop than he, our daughter thought she saw the person who stole it, than he can ever possibly begin to imagine.

There is coming a payday someday.

One day, that gentleman will pay for his sins, including the theft of the laptop.  My true prayer for him is that this will be the last thing he will ever steal, that he will repent of his wickedness, and that God would be pleased to draw him to Himself.

It’s a sad thing that people don’t stop to think…

Payday someday.

  1. Unconverted sinners live for the moment, with little thought re the future or the consequences of their thoughts, words and actions… God knows all and does not forget. This is one of those Rom. 8:28 moments….as the Paul was beaten at Philippi. God brought great blessing out of that beating, but it didn’t lessen the beating itself…
    Bro. D.

    • I just feel sad for him, thinking he “got away with it,” and not realizing that he’s just treasuring up wrath. At the same time, I should have been more careful with it, letting strangers into the house.
