The Pig and the Cat.
When do you think they are their happiest?
Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Galatians 6:7-8 New International Version
The pig of course is its happiest when it is wallowing in the mud.
When do you think the cat is the happiest?
When it is laying contentedly in the warm sunlight of course.
So too it is with people. There are those who are quite content to wallow in sin. When they see a Christian living a godly life they snort and laugh at us. If you try to coax a pig into the sunlight it will viciously fight you. . There are some that after you share Jesus with them and they refuse you have to walk away. No matter what you do they refuse to come into the light.
Christians are the most contented when they are basking in the warmth of Christ’s love.
Just as mud is disgusting to a cat, so too is a sinful life to a Christian A Christian must avoid fellowship with those in the filth of sin less they be drawn into it. That does not mean we are to refuse to talk with them. It does mean when they want to live the sinful lifestyle like using drugs we are to run away.
Poor people are those who only work to try to keep an expensive lifestyle, and always want more and more.’ José Mujica Uruguayan president gives his wages to the poor.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Rohi (God our Sheppard) please guide me to those living in the filth of sin and provide the opportunity to guide them into Your beautiful sunlight of love. If they enjoy the filth, give me the strength and wisdom to walk away knowing there is nothing I can say or do to change their ways. Thank you my beloved for Your wonderful warm sunshine of love that has blessed me so much. I ask this in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
