In Luke, we read about the scoundrels of then and we can relate to them in our day. Scoundrels and scoffers have this motto: “God won’t hold me accountable; He doesn’t care.” But, one day, like the rich man in Luke 16 and here in Psalm 10, when they do care–it is far too late. The lesson for us is to remember that God is patient but ultimately He will call for justice. The psalmist is saying there will be a day when there will be no avenue to seek God’s patient lovingkindness.
Scoundrels and scoffers have fallen for the lie that God is love and He will overlook what they do now. One day the books will be opened and the deeds of men will be revealed. “each of us will give an account of himself to God.” Truly,“[we] will face a reckoning before Jesus Christ who stands ready to judge the living and the dead.” [1Peter 4:5]
Whether you are the most moral person on the planet or you are a scoundrel, know this truth; God knows your situation and your heart. God’s question is if you knew that you would stand before Him today would you be ready to give an accounting of your life?
