Pro 26:27 Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.
A slightly larger context from this passage in Proverbs should make the application to today’s environment very clear to careful, thoughtful readers:
Pro 26:24 Whoever hates disguises himself with his lips and harbors deceit in his heart;
Pro 26:25 when he speaks graciously, believe him not, for there are seven abominations in his heart;
Pro 26:26 though his hatred be covered with deception, his wickedness will be exposed in the assembly.
Pro 26:27 Whoever digs a pit will fall into it, and a stone will come back on him who starts it rolling.
Pro 26:28 A lying tongue hates its victims, and a flattering mouth works ruin. (ESV)
Now that sufficient time has passed since I wrote my previous article, I believe it is evident that good prevailed over evil, even if by a fairly narrow margin.
President Trump was acquitted of the two charges brought by the Democrats in the House of Representatives. In my judgment, those two charges did not at all rise to the level of impeachable offenses under our Constitution.
I think that Nancy Pelosi in particular, by her actions of tearing up her copy of the President’s State of the Union address, placed herself and the party she represents in very poor light.
At this point I think it would be most wise to not elect any Democrats to Congress, House or Senate, or the Presidency itself, until Democrats divorce themselves entirely from their present far left-wing nonsense. I, personally, have usually voted for Democrat candidates because the Democratic Party in the past supported teachers and public education far more than the Republican Party ever did. But now I must reject all of the Democrats because of their support of Socialism and their wrongful stance on moral issues, such as the right to life and the defense of the Second Amendment.
Their wrong positions on important issues will hopefully come back to haunt and frustrate them for many years to come. Help make that happen. Be sure to vote.
In my last post or article I ended the article with this statement:
Be sure to read and study your Bible enough to make a difference in your life. That has immediate benefits and can bring good eternal consequences!
That is a most important comment.
If you let this idea sink in and then follow its advice, you will experience wonderful new insight and will improve your life.
I noticed as the sponsor of the Bible Discussion Club at Cass Technical High School in Detroit, Michigan, that as my students became more interested in the Bible it brought real change to their lives. I am still in touch with a few of those students. It is my observation that those changes were real back then and those changes remain in their lives today, fifty years later!
If you would read the Bible seriously more than five days a week, starting at first with the New Testament, your life will change.
What changes can you expect to see?
(1) Far less anxiety
(2) Deliverance from addictions, whether smoking, drinking alcohol, taking drugs, consuming pornography, participating in any immoral lifestyle choices.
(3) An increasing interest in the Bible and spiritual things.
(4) An ever-increasing desire to help others place their faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
(5) An increasing ability to tell the difference between truth and propaganda.
If enough people would experience a deeper faith in the Bible and our Lord Jesus Christ, our country would experience a real change for the better. Families would be strengthened. Children would learn in the home what they might not learn in school–substantial moral values that undergird a successful life.
Make Bible reading and study a priority in your life to make your world a better place.
