Aug 19 – Not Mr. Wonderful

Michael – was chosen by his classmates as president of his class during his junior and senior years and as “Mr. Wonderful” in his senior year. But the Virginia resident at the age of 23 was sentenced for being anything but wonderful. He was convicted of conspiring to distribute more than one million dollars worth of Cocaine, Marijuana and other drugs. The judge in the case, calling him articulate, and educated gave him ten years in prison. Of course Michael is not the only person going around disguised as something he is not. Outwardly many appear as model citizens, perhaps, attending church regularly, giving to charities But the Bible, speaking of our true nature says, “the heart is desperately wicked and deceitful above all things.” It adds, “Man look on the outward appearance, but God looks on the heart.” Are you a wolf in sheep’s clothing like Michael ? We you can hide our true character from family and friends, but not from God.
