Today’s Daily Devotional
“Depart from evil, and do good, and dwell forevermore. For the Lord loves justice, and does not forsake His saints; they are preserved forever, but the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off. The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell in it forever.”
The reason many people are grumbly hateful rather than humbly grateful is that they have this belief, this conviction that no matter what, “God is fair.” Let me tell you: God is not fair. God is just.
Fairness is a human attribute. “Fairness” implies that God owes us something, and if we don’t get it, God isn’t “fair” to us. Or if somebody gets more than we got, or before we get it, we grumble and pout, “That’s not fair. So-and-so got more than I got.”
That has nothing to do with it. Again, God is not “fair.” God is just—perfectly righteous and holy. God owes us nothing, but He owes His own sense of integrity everything.
Nobody’s going to cry out for mercy until they see that God is just. When we do, then we’ll cry out for mercy. Don’t complain, “I didn’t get this or that.” Instead say, “Lord God, You are a just God, and now I need mercy. Give me what I don’t deserve. Give me mercy, dear Lord, not because I have it coming to me, but because You are loving and kind.”

Truth or Consequences | Part 1
There is an alarming decline in basic honesty in our nation. We know more facts and believe less truth than ever before. In this message, Adrian Rogers discusses our faithful witness, so that we may wisely choose between truth and consequences.
For most of us, we like things made very clear and simple. Adrian Rogers has taken the largest pieces of the Bible story and broken them into eight key chapters.
