My wife’s step-dad used to have massive hands! His fingers were big and thick, so much so that it was like there was no apace between his fingers, just one big paw. Not only were they huge and powerful, but they were hard and calloused. The kind of callous’ you can only get from years of swinging a hammer or handling a shovel.
When a person’s hands become calloused their sensitivity to touch decreases – a callous by its nature is hard and insensitive. This is how Scripture describes the ungodly – they are hardened, callous and insensitive to the Gospel:
Someone may read that and conclude; “I am not ungodly!”
So, before we continue with our verse, let’s define ungodly. It’s quite simple.
Is Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior – do you filter what you say, think and do through His revealed will in the Scripture (the Bible) – and when you stumble do you run to Him in prayer for forgiveness, knowing He is the only one that can save you from the Wrath to come, the Wrath of God you deserve?
Love warns, and in the most loving way I can manage, by the grace of God
