The Light Daily Devotional – Leprosy of the Mind
Focus: Leprosy of the Mind
The word for today
A man who cannot stand and live by the truth he knows is leprous in the mind. It is a grievous sin for a man to see evil and call it good out of selfish desire!
“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter” Isaiah 5:20 NKJV
There are several men who shy away from speaking what they know to be the truth for personal or corporate gain. When a man knows the truth and chooses to do otherwise or fails to provide adequate support for it out of selfishness, he is building a leprous mind.
The word of the Lord makes it clear in the passage above that misery results from affliction, suffering, and intense mournfulness. It awaits those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.
A type of mind that rejoices in the face of evil practices, deceit, cheating, corruption, unrighteousness, and all forms of malpractice at any level of life is a leprous mind. A nation can never be great until its people have a mind devoid of leprosy and channel their strength to promote righteousness at all levels of life.
What type of mind is your mind?
Prayer: Lord! Make me an agent and a promoter of righteousness in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: A man is suffering from leprosy of the mind each time he rejoices in or supports any form of evil for any reason!
Have an impressive Tuesday!
