The Tangled Web

13 Jan

Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive!! Remember THAT old ditty! The moral of that story is DO NOT LIE. Any time we lie, we WILL get tangled up in it.

But there are other tangled webs we encounter in life:

Communication: If we do not communicate with those around us, especially those we love, those we depend on, and those we serve, WE WILL GET INTO A HEAP OF TROUBLE!! We cannot allow pride or prejudice to get in the way of our communication.

Addiction: Addiction drives far too many people to do things they would have never dreamed. It is a horrible existence that causes all kinds of complication in life. The greatest complication is the self-deception it causes . . . It kills families, communities, churches, and people!

Idol-worship: ANY TIME we put ANYTHING AHEAD of GOD in our lives, there will be great pain, complication, emptiness, and failure. PERIOD.

Self-focus: WHOA IS ME!! Anytime we are so focused on ourselves that we do not see the world around us, the same calamity from above awaits us. Our focus and priorities should be GOD FIRST, and He will set the list for the rest!

I could go on and on, but you get the idea. Any time we are focused on, or worshiping ANYTHING other than God, we can expect great trouble and our lives become a tangled mess!!
