The Bible says, “Thy Word have I hidden in my heart that I might not sin against You!”(Ps. 119:111)
Recently, a 3 year-old Australian boy was lucky to escape uninjured after a collection of eggs that he found in his yard hatched into a slithering tangle of deadly snakes.
The 3 year old had found 9 small eggs in his yard. He picked them up, put them in a take-out food box and put them in his room.
He had no idea that the 9 eggs were Eastern Brown Snakes that just happen to be the world’s 2nd most deadly snake.
Luckily his mother found the take-out dish full of snakes in his room after 7 of the eggs had hatched and the boy was unhurt. Of course, the boy had no idea that his collection could have cost him his life.
As I thought a little more about that story, I wondered how many of us do the same thing in our life. How many times do we collect bad habits or bad thoughts? If we are not careful, they will hatch some day and destroy us.
Think about it and have a blessed day!
