Saving the Worst for Last?
"But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet show I unto you a more excellent way." 1 Corinthians 12:31
Satan always gives the best first and the worst last. For example, Proverbs 20:17 says, "The bread of deceit is sweet, but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel." With Satan, it always starts sweet, but it does not end that way.
Satan is a counterfeiter and a deceiver, and he is guilty of false advertising.
- He doesn't show the drunkard in the gutter covered with flies.
- He doesn't show the addict shaking uncontrollably from another night of detox.
- He doesn't show the ruined lives from sexually transmitted diseases.
He always gives the best first and the worst last. Jesus gives the best last.
