The Big Picture

God looks down from heaven on the entire human race; he looks to see if there is even one with real understanding, one who seeks for God. But no, all have turned away from God; all have become corrupt. No one does good, not even one! Psalm 53: 2-3 NLT

How often has God looked down on the entire human race and seen no one who has real understanding or seeks God? If you think it is something for our modern times, think again.

These verses seem straight out of the beginning of the Noah's Ark story. Or the story of Lot leaving Sodom and Gomorrah. Or even the Samaritan village that wouldn't allow Jesus and his disciples to enter.

And how about the so-called Dark Ages? Or even the years prior to World War II? Time and again God must look down on the human race and we all seem pretty much turned away from God.

God, when you look down on the human race, do I seem to seek understanding? Am I seeking you? Or do you find me turned away and corrupt? Help me to seek you, to seen understanding, to do good and to turn from corruption. In Jesus' name. Amen.
