Daily Verse: “Whoever isolates himself seeks his own desire; he breaks out against all sound judgment.” Prov. 18:1

Self-centered and Unreasonable.

“The Unabomber died today. Do you remember him?” Ron said. How could I forget the man who committed 16 bombings, killing three, maiming others, and terrorizing the country for almost two decades from the late 70s to the mid-90s? When the FBI captured him, he lived in a 10 x 14 ft. plywood and tarpaper cabin.   An extreme example of an antisocial person who isolates himself seeks his desires, and goes against sound judgment.

Today’s verse refers to an enemy of society, usually caused by strong differences in belief. Ted Kaczynski, the Unabomber, had journals showing his motives for making homemade bombs and mailing them came from petty grievances and the wish for vengeance, according to AP news.

People can become so convicted of their beliefs that they take extreme measures. Thankfully, most don’t go to the extent Kaczynski did, but it happens.

Pray for people to have eyes to see and ears to hear the ways of the Lord. God help them; He’s the only one who can.

Lord, thank You for giving us eyes to see and ears to hear You. We pray for those with issues that cause them to isolate and not listen to sound judgment. Please help them, Lord, as only You can. IJNIP. Amen
