DCLM Daily Manna – “Scarcity Of Godly Men”

William Folorunso KumuyiTopic: Scarcity Of Godly Men [DCLM Daily Manna 7 January 2019 Daily Devotional]
Text: Psalm 12:1-8 (KJV)
Key Verse: “Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men“ (Psalm 12:1).
The United States Marine Corp clearly states that they want “a few good men.” Honestly, only the best of the bests make it through the training. We have heard a song written by Bill Gaither, stating that Jesus needs a few good men. God wants men who are good and godly as well. Not all men are necessarily godly.
The psalmist lamented the scarcity of godly men on earth. He observed that the world was full of lies and deceit. Many people cannot be trusted because they lie one to another. Despite the apparent drop in trust due to double dealing, the Word of God remains pure as silver; purified and clean. The difference between the Word and the deeds of men is as far as the East from the West and as clear as the day is from the night.
It is a paradox when the system punishes someone who is righteous and upholds the truth and equity. Deceit has become the order of the day in some places. Faithfulness is no longer rewarded and cherished as it should be. In some corrupt countries today, people who get rich through unlawful means are celebrated rather than investigated and put in jail.
That does not mean the whole world is corrupt and ungodly. There are a few godly men and women today who model righteousness through the transformation that has taken place in their lives when they made Jesus Christ their Lord and Saviour. They hold the fort, and shine the light in their work places, homes and the communities where they live. A great reward awaits all who live godly and faithful in the world to come. Such must be the examples of God’s saints who radiate as lights in a depraved world.
Thought For The Day: It is wisdom to be a beacon of light in a world steeped in darkness.
Bible Reading In One Year: Genesis 21-23
