Grace and peace be unto you.
Have you ever conspired against an innocent person? What was the outcome? The Lord requires that we act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly before him (Micah 6:8).
The story is told that the Arameans conspired with the Ammonites to fight against Israel, after the Ammonites provoked David. Their attempts failed and the Arameans regrouped. When David heard, he took the Israelite army, crossed the Jordan River, went to Helam and fought against them. The Arameans suffered severe losses and surrendered. (2 Samuel 10:15-19).
The Arameans were paid to join forces with the Ammonites. Nonetheless, their defeat and humiliation were greater than the money received. In essence, it was not worth it. If you are being favorably rewarded to join forces for evil, reject the offer. The consequences will far outweigh the reward. Scripture says, “Reject every form of evil” (1 Thessalonians 5:22).
You might say, “Well, I am in a challenging situation and need the reward, hence I will not decline the offer.” From God’s perspective, this thinking is wrong. He promised to meet all your needs (Philippians 4:19). He is faithful and keeps his promises. Hence, if you have a need, talk with him, he never disappoints.
Heavenly Father, help us to trust you and reject every form of evil. In Jesus’ name, amen.
