thought for today

"Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign LORD. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?...“Therefore, house of Israel, I will judge each of you according to your own ways, declares the Sovereign LORD. Repent! Turn away from all your offenses; then sin will not be your downfall. Rid yourselves of all the offenses you have committed, and get a new heart and a new spirit. Why will you die, house of Israel? For I take no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Sovereign LORD. Repent and live!"—Ezekiel 18:23, 30-32 TNIV

<idle musing>
Encouraging words. The door is open to us; God offers us a new heart and a new spirit. Why would anyone turn him down? I know, in a single word: "Pride!"
