As He Thinketh In His Heart

Gen 6:6  And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 

The above verse uses some very strong words when it comes to a loving God.  Can you imagine the one person that epitomizes love and grace and forgiveness making the statement that He regrets you ever being born?  When I think of God, what quickly comes to my mind is love, mercy, compassion, etc…but let’s not think that this sums up God.  He is so awesome and intricate that no one can know the mind of God.  So my question still stands, “What makes God say that He regrets   making man?”  The answer is found in the verse 5.

Gen 6:5  And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 

At first glance a person might think that there was an action done that would make God that mad, but according to verse 5, what caused God’s outrage was actually every thought and imagination of man was only evil continually.  That may not seem like a “game-changer” for most people, but to God it is.  In fact, He decided to change all of mankind right then with the flood.  I would take a guess and say that God cares about what we think!  God puts high importance on what we think and imagine!  Imagine That!  Here is another verse on thinking

Pro 23:7  For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee. 

God hates it when we think on things that are evil.  I didn’t say that we have evil thoughts toward some and want them to hurt, but when we dwell on evil thinking like witchcraft and vampires and werewolfs and immoral and adulterous people and acts.  I don’t know who reads this so I don’t know anything about your life to meddle, but I want to say that what we think about is very important to our God….what do you think about in your spare time?
