DON'T TRY TO BRIBE GOD!!

PROVERBS 21:27

27The sacrifice of the wicked is detestable, how much more so when brought with evil intent!


21: 27   The kind of worship (“ sacrifice”) described in this proverb is no better than a bribe. How do people try to bribe God? They may go to church, tithe, or serve, not because of their love and devotion to God, but because they hope God will bless them in return. But God has made it very clear that he desires obedience and love more than religious ritual. God does not want our sacrifices of time, energy, and money alone; he wants be able to bribe people (Proverbs 21: 14 A gift given in secret soothes anger,and a bribe concealed in the cloak pacifies great wrath.), but we cannot bribe God.

Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible


I don't know about others, But as we go through the Proverbs I see so many ways that I was guilty of doing the exact opposite of what God's word tells us to do!! While i was selling dope I was also trying to bribe God by saying I had to help the people that were selling dope for me by using my time and money to help them do what I was causing them to neglect in their lives by selling dope. Such as pay bills, have a good Christmas for their families, or even simply being a good parent by spending time with their own families instead of selling and doing dope. But God knew what I was doing!! And I paid the price for my sinful "sacrifices"!


ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and make sure that your life is the sacrifice of your time and efforts to please God not cover up your sins by appeasing God with "so called works" that are really sinful due to your sins!
