Scripture Session: God is Order, Evil is Chaos

Proverbs 10:29 NIV

The way of the Lord is a refuge for the blameless, but it is the ruin of those who do evil.

The word of God is a relief for people that want to do the right thing.  When you think about judging people fairly, treating others how we want to be treated, and loving thy neighbor those should be pretty straight forward things that good people do.  However, when you think about folks that are corrupt and that sin, they are usually doing things opposite of the word of God.  Again, most of the problems and chaos in the world is a result of people being disobedient to God’s word.  Furthermore, most sins and evil are offenses against others.  Theft, rape, incest, molestation, false witness, assault, insults, murder, etc. are all things that harm another person and are all bad.  So yes, people that want to live with order, goodness, and treat others with respect tend to want to embrace God.  Evil folks that want to live as they want with lawlessly and their own standards will shy away from the Lord because he stands against their principles.
