Therefore the word of the Lord will be to them, “Precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little;”in order that they may go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken. (Isaiah 28:13)
We should have over enthusiasm to listen, obey and spread the Word of God.
11 for those who despise wisdom and instruction are miserable.
Their hope is vain, their labors are unprofitable,
and their works are useless.
12 Their wives are foolish, and their children evil;
13 their offspring are accursed. (Wisdom 3:11-13)
Sometimes we feel that we are hard working, but the result is zero or not up to the level as it should be. Sometimes we wish and hope good things, but the result is just the opposite. We send our children in good schools but their result is poor, their friendship is with wrong people. Wives are beautiful and look like very clever, but doing foolish things. When we feel our hope is vain, our labor is not profitable, our works are useless, our children are not listening to parents and elders and they are leading a life as per their wish with wrong friends, then that is the time for us to look back and think whether we have ever despised wisdom and instructions of Word of God. If yes, we must repent and ask pardon to Lord for this.
Never insult Word of God or discourse. Do not even touch the Holy Bible with impurity. If ever thrown out or put the Bible in fire, repent about that sin.
