A Word to the Wise. The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD, But the prayer of the upright is His delight (Proverbs 15:8, NKJV). There are many people who feign a religious disposition. They do so because they don’t want others to see them as they actually are; they desire to be seen as morally upright and sympathetic to godliness. They “go to church,” are quite charitable, and do other things to be seen of men. Those who have a façade religious disposition can fool many, but they can never fool the Lord. The principle of Numbers 32:23 will certainly apply. “… behold, you have sinned against the LORD, and be sure your sin will find you out” (ESV). But for those who love the Lord, and are obedient to His will, their prayers are heard and answered.
