Let us Pray – “My Jesus, send your Holy Spirit to teach me the ways to eternal life. Open my heart to understand your rules and commandments. Praise the Lord. Thanks to Lord. (say Alleluia.. Alleluia many times with raised hands)
Lack of understanding about the Word of God is wastage.
13 Therefore my people will go into exile
for lack of understanding;
those of high rank will die of hunger
and the common people will be parched with thirst.
14 Therefore Death expands its jaws,
opening wide its mouth;
into it will descend their nobles and masses
with all their brawlers and revelers.
15 So people will be brought low
and everyone humbled,
the eyes of the arrogant humbled. (Isaiah 5:13-15)
In the bible the word ‘lack of understanding’ is not used about the world or worldly things, but meant about the God and the Word of God.
Jesus replied, “Are you not in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God? (Mark 12:24)
……. a people without understanding will come to ruin! (Hosea 4:14)
When its twigs are dry, they are broken off and women come and make fires with them.
For this is a people without understanding; so their Maker has no compassion on them, and their Creator shows them no favor. (Isaiah 27:11)
God does not give any value to a person who do not have Word of God in the heart. He will be ignored like dried and decayed wood falling from tree.
Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:19)
Violating even a very small word of God will lead a person without value in heaven
….. “They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do.” (1 Peter 2:8)
