Fools mock at sin, but among the upright there is favor. (Proverbs 14:9, NKJV)
Often the righteous are ridiculed, made a laughing stock and spoken evil against because they will not join sinners in committing sin or in accepting sin as good (1 Pet. 4:4). Sin is little more than a sport to those who reject God’s truth: “To do evil is like sport to a fool, but a man of understanding has wisdom” (Prov. 10:23). Do you mock at your own sin by carelessly refusing to repent of it? Be wise and gain understanding. There is no favor or grace for one who scoffs at sin. Instead of mocking at sin, choose the righteous path of truth and obtain favor with God, now and forevermore.
