As we wander through the cold, gray mist of the dawning of another day of life, we often overlook the most important and wonderful part of the new day, the blessing of just being able to see and enjoy another day.
We often neglect to thank the Lord for such a blessing as this, and we take it for granted that we will be alive to receive another day, or I should say another tomorrow.
Life is short and filled with trials, tribulations and sorrows at best, so mankind will resort to trying to find the easiest way to get to the Promised Land. Not willing to turn loose of the things of this world or to sell all that he has and give it to the poor, some will make a sizeable contribution to a church just to get their name written in the church record book, but the book they ought to consider is the Lamb’s Book of Life and is not kept by man.
So they seek after a wolf in sheep’s clothing and end up in a cult and are led to believe whatever the cult leader wants them to believe.
Two examples stand out in my feeble mind. Jim Jones in Guyana caused the death of so many because he led them to believe that they could drink deadly poison and survive, and they believed him and drank it. But they died in piles.
Then there was David Koresh in Waco, Texas, who also caused the death of so many, which led to the destruction of the Muriel Office building in Oklahoma City by Timothy McVey and Terry Nichols.
All because of wolves in sheep’s clothing.
These are but a few of the many out there lurking about, so people best beware of what they believe and follow the one and only Shepherd, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Until next time. The funny farm.
Humor: a young couple had two children, one in day care and one in diapers. One day the mother went to pick up the one in day care leaving the baby with her husband. On her return, the baby had a soggy diaper. She asked him why he hadn’t changed it, and he replied the instructions said ‘up to 15 pounds,’ and it didn’t have nearly that much in it yet.
