Isaiah 3:10-12

I am going through the book of Isaiah right now and the other day this stood out to me.

Isaiah 3:10-12 Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Woe unto the wicked! It shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him. As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of they paths.
“And women rule over them” … “they which lead thee [the women that rule over them] shall cause thee to err”. This is not a good thing! It is a judgment to those who do not do what is right.
 
"children are their oppressors" Children are their taskmasters! They run the show (along with the women). And look a few verses before the ones I mentioned above: "...the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable"
 
These exact things are going on around us every day. I think of the verses that warn and command children to obey their parents, that warn against pride, that teach what the most important things in life are. And the verses that tell women how they are to conduct themselves "that the word of God be not blasphemed."
 
These things come from the heart. They are not things that you can pretend or force yourself to do. The truth will always show sooner or later. If they are truly done from the heart you will bring forth the fruits of the Spirit.
