Another trip to the farm and another adventure with nature... This time it was ants. As I lay under the rear of my truck, installing a hitch, it felt as though I was on rough sandpaper. Really rough; I mean like biting into my arm rough. I got out form under the truck to move the ground cover I was using when I saw the source of the 'sandpaper' in the form of tiny, albeit angry ants.
By the time I. got home some six hours later, My left arm looked as though it had a serious case of acne. Gee, thanks Mama Nature.
Is that just like sin, or what? It just creeps up on us, making us a little uncomfortable, bites into us repeatedly before we react, and then later we feel the full affect of the transgression.
This week, keep those ants of sin away from yourself and those you meet. Invite the sufferers to church and show them the Balm of Gilead and the Love of Christ.
Monday on the tube I saw a comedy bit about a produce butcher. The comedian said this person would slice your produce and went on to ask just how lazy one needed to be to not slice one's own produce.
Tuesday on the tube was a real news story of a company in the US Midwest that is micro-chipping employees for the sake of... Well I just do not care to know! That is just a bit too much 'Big Brother' or 'End of days' for me.
Whether the people at the company are too lazy to get money out of their pocket or do not want to Don an ID badge I cannot say. All I can say is we seem to have become a world that thinks we can outsmart God, want to play God, or do not need God.
WAKE UP! We all must have God to make it through each day. As Christians we know this, but there is obviously a plethora of people unaware of this. It is our job to reach them, teach them, and guide them to God. Please take on this challenge and let us each one reach one.
