...Stinks to high heaven!

These....bugs are going the wrong way, they are trying to constantly get inside my home and I don't want them. They are like sin knocking at my door because of my sinful nature and that sin stinks to high heaven just like these bugs.

I look at all these bugs and how I don't like them. Then I think of how they stink....and I'm so thankful that God takes it easier on me than I do on these bugs. You see I tend to hesitate in the faith, and at times tend to take the wrong way in my everyday actions.

Help me to live out my life to be more like Jesus every day. Help me to go easy on those who hesitate in the faith. Most importantly help me to always remember that sin stinks and I need to turn the other way when it knocks at my door.

I love you Lord and I want to be all that you want me to be as I continue to serve you here.

Your humbled Servant,

Great imagery...what are they?
They do not look good....which sadly sin has a habit of doing until we see how it is off and just pure stinky stuff.
Good one.

Cathy, great devotional and photo you've shared today. I tend to have no pity on bugs but thank goodness God is not that way with me. Blessings to you.

Oh! I had to do a double-take to see the bugs. They remind me of the ones that invaded our home during the monsoon season! Yuk!
But sin masquerades as something desirable, and unfortunately we let it in. Then we realize how stinky it is.
Great photo and post!
Blessings,
Janis
