Psalms 94:23

"And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the Lord our God shall cut them off."
Psalms 94:23

This is pretty cool, if it only happens to the bad people, right?  Except... are we good people or bad people?  I don't think this is a rameumptom sort of a thing where we get to thank God for saving us and crushing others.  Instead, we all get our own iniquity dumped on our individual heads, and everyone gets cut off in their own wickedness.  And it isn't God laying this on us and judging unfairly.  It is *perfectly* fair... which is why we should take a good look at our lives and make sure we aren't doing things that are going to be painful when they get dumped back on our heads.  Maybe we should be doing softer things. :)  Kinder.  Things that we *want* to be showered with.
And if we have been doing sharp and pointy (or evil) things... let's take off that black hat, repent, and start being one of the good guys.  The only way it doesn't get dumped on our heads is if we actually change into a better sort of a person.  Let's think about this today.  Not in a "oh no, God is going to hurt me" way, because he isn't... he doesn't want to at all.  But in a ... wow, what I do really is going to come back to me in the end.  Let's make sure it is the sort of thing that I want to return.  We get to choose... every day... who we are, and what our reward will be in the end.  Let's be the kind of people who can be happy when they get back what they've given out.  Maybe cupcakes? ;)
