THOUGHT AND SCRIPTURE FOR THE WEEK

To learn how to rest in a restless world, we must listen when Jesus says, “Come to Me.”  Matthew 11:28 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

SIN IS SATAN’S LIVE WIRE

A young girl saw a wire that was hanging from a post, and playfully grasp the live wire.  Instantly her hand was fastened to the burning current, and she screamed for help.  She used her other hand to try to loosen her stiffened fingers, and the other hand was also caught.  She hung there in agony.  Her mother rushed to her side to pull her down, but the mother was flung off by a shock from the girl’s body.  A man came running who understood what to do.  He took an axe and severed the wire by striking it against the pole.  The current was broken, and the girl fell to the ground.  Her life was saved, but her hands were damaged for the rest of her life.  She knew never again to play with live wires.   This should also remind us never to “play” with sin.  It is definitely Satan’s live wire!

WHAT THEN?

The following verses were written by a young soldier, S/Sgt. Jarvis D. Anderson, during the Korean War:

If you reach your goal of riches

What then?

If you dress in pin-stripe britches,

What then?

When your glory has diminished,

What then?

And the doctor says you’re finished,

What then?

When each fading moment tells

Like the echoes from a bell

That you’re headed straight for hell,

What then?
