Better now than later

RE Verse reading–Amos 7:1-17, 8:1-3 (day four)  “Look, I am setting a plumb line among my people Israel; I will spare them no longer.  The High places will be destroyed and the sanctuaries ruined” (7:8)  It is axiomatic.  A wall or building that leans will eventually fall down.  Only straight walls are strong.  Gravity wins every time.  And better now than later.  It is the love of God that warns us of His strict building code.  It is His love when He pulls down those things, endeavors, patterns and possessions that will not later pass the inspection of eternity.  In the rubble of our first failure we can, at least, wake up to the problem and find the foundation again to begin building something that is more worthy.  May the Lord give us grace not to resist.  It is His love for us that pulls down all things that are not eternal.  And better now than later.
