Reflections: Staggering toward slaughter

In Proverbs 24, God asks you and me a very significant, difficult to answer question with eternal consequences. We should consider our answer very carefully. We also ought to understand that our answers are not given so much by our words, but with our future actions. Proverbs 24:11-12, "Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. If you say, 'But we knew nothing about this,' does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it? Will he not repay each person according to what he has done?" (NIV).
