"Faye's daily words of encouragement" # 83 Todays word is: Pit

Updated on December 10, 2009

"Faye's daily words of encouragement" # Todays word is: Pit"

Why would you dig a pit or a ditch for someone, when you know you will end up there.
Why would you dig a pit or a ditch for someone, when you know you will end up there.

"Faye's daily words of encouragement " # 83 Todays word is: Pit"

Definition of the word Pit: It's a hole or shaft in the ground, sunken or enclosed place for a special purpose, hell.

Proverbs chapter 28 - 10 : Whoso causeth the righteous to go astray in a evil way, he shall fall himself into his own pit: but the up right shall have good things in possessions.

Numbers chapter 16 -30 : But the Lord make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth, and swallowed them up; with all that into the pit; then ye shall understand these men have provoked God.

Genesis chapter 37 - 20 : Come now therefore, and let us slay him, and cast him into some pit, and we will say, some evil beast hath devoured him: and we shall see what will become of his dreams.

Let's talk about pits and digging ditches for others to fall into. A lot of this,; is happening in today's society. Brothers and sisters in Christ, don't dig ditches or pits for others because it's not a godly thing to do. when we're in Christ and being led by the holy spirit; the things we do are good and honorable. Although some of us let Satan use us, by digging pits and ditches for others; that we are envious and jealous of. In using theses tactics of the devil; we might succeed in knocking some one off the rungs of their ladder, but we will ultimately suffer the same consequences as well.

I believe totally in the word of God and the bible does say: if you dig a ditch for someone, into that very destruction you will fall, so that means you reap whatever you sow. Digging pits and ditches in someone Else's life; will cause us , pain and destruction. If we want the love of God in our lives, we need to help a brother or sister up in their life and not tear them down; because they're prospering and we're not. Doing this will only cause our blessing to stoop flowing back to us. So, let's lift up our brothers and sisters in Christ and not tear them down.

      So true. When we consentrate on harming others we harm ourselves. When we lift another, we can't help but be lifted up as well. Nice hub. :)

      So true, so true. When we are out to cause others to fail, we'll fail ourselves. Like you brought out, often times they don't know what impels them to do this and they wonder why life is consistently serving them sour lemons.

      Creativeone, Excellent Hub! It is sad to see what lengths that some will go to in order to pull someone down and slander them because they are ... It also gives us a glimpse as to what Jesus Christ endured for us and He was totally sinless! All we do we must do it as we do it unto the LORD! One most always keep in mind that GOD knows the TRUTH in His time He will “work it ALL out for GOOD…” In the meantime the WORD says; “PRAY for those who spitefully use you and persecute you…”

      Joseph and His brothers is an excellent example.. Thank you for sharing, Love & Blessings!

      What you saying is true, but just like Jesus said, that, they not what they do; it's a true fact, people that do these things have no idea of the consequences; are they would do them. we are so busy putting stumbling blocks in everyone's way; that they don't even consider why; nothing is working for them: in their own lives. Thank you Revlady, for you comment and positive feedback. I appreciate it. Have a blessed day. creativeone59

      It is amazing BFD, that some people actually find the time to focus on others lives in such a negative way as to dig ditches. Yes, it is not only is is ungodly, but self defeating. Christians have no room in their lives for such ungodly nonsense.

      Love and hugs,
