Oil and Water
Anyone who has made a salad knows that oil and water do not mix well. Many salad dressings are made of a mixture of oil, water vinegar and spices. While quite good, they must be vigorously shaken at serving because the two products will not bind together for long.
Solomon notes that the righteous and the unrighteous are much like oil and water.An unjust man is abominable to the righteous,And he who is upright in the way is abominable to the wicked.(Proverbs 27:25)
How true! But isn’t it also true that we try so hard to be liked by others that sometimes we cut too much slack to the evil man? Why do we try so hard to be a part of the world that Satan controls? We must, of course, reach out to the evil and seek to teach them of God’s great love, but we mustn’t seek to be accepted by him. The wicked laugh at us and make sport of the Christian. Let us see him for what he is: Abominable!
