Loving God’s people

Re: Verse reading–Psalm 53 (day seven)
“Will the evildoers never learn–those who devour my people as men eat bread and who do not call on God?”  (vs 4)  Do you love God’s people?  It is one of the deep questions of life.  While it may not be clear to us why God chooses people and puts his favor on them, one thing is certain.  At the end of time one of the standards by which we will be judged is the treatment (or mistreatment) of the people that God calls His own.  “I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you, I will curse.”  (Genesis 12:3)  “Depart from Me, accursed ones. . .to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did not do it to Me.”  (Matthew 25:41, 45)  It is a warning for evildoers.  It is a question for us all.  Do we love God’s people?
