But the Lord saw that the wickedness of humankind had become great on the earth. Every inclination of the thoughts of their minds was only evil all the time. Gen. 6:5 NET
It didn't take a long time from the fall of Adam for man to be consumed with acts of wickedness. Once people choose to forget the presence of a Holy God it becomes easy to pursue evil. The people of this time period pursued it so much that it was on their mind "all the time." What were they thinking?
Perhaps they thought God would put up with it for ever! Maybe they thought if they couldn't see Him... He couldn't see them! They may have thought they were made to think up wicked schemes! Or, they thought there would never be any consequences to sin. They thought wrong!
That my friends is where all our trouble still starts... THOUGHTS! What are you thinking today?
And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Phil. 4:8 NLT
