Life’s Potholes

“He who digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit he has made”

Psalm 7:15 (NIV)

Sometimes we get ourselves into tough situations that we bring on ourselves. The common saying; “If you play with fire, you will get burned”, is from the same biblical logic (but this verse is a funnier picture).

A gossip will probably be gossiped about, a mean person seems to find people who are mean to them, one who doesn’t help others usually has to pay someone for help…

Also, if we mess around with sin, we will experience it’s sting. “If you don’t want trouble, stay out of trouble’s orchard”.


Heavenly Father, show me the ‘pits’ I am digging. Give me forgiveness and the strength to change. Don’t let me get in the way of the blessings You long to hand me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
