Well, well, well. From what I see and hear, ol’ slew foot, the accuser of our brethren, the father of lies, our biggest and baddest adversary, the deceiver, the tempter, the ruler of this world, the angel of the bottomless pit, ol’ hoofed one, ol’ forked tongue, beelzebub, the man of sin, better known simply as satan, is hard at work! Everywhere I go, I hear of some crap that’s going on. I’m not talking about things you may hear of on the news! I mean things right here in my community. Things the news media wouldn’t deem ‘newsworthy‘ like people having issues with rebellious kids, marital problems, addictions, and money issues. Y’all, the family unit, as we know it, is slowly (or not so slowly) being torn apart. And the sad thing is, we (society in general) act like we can just hop from one person to the next, or from one home to the next, and not expect issues?!?
Think the grass is greener on the other side? Bet you a thousand dollars you’ll be stepping in a big pile of dog crap before you know it! That grass ain’t pretty and green for nothin’! Ol’ Beelzebub has been fertilizing that grass for his next victim! And he’ll trick you really good! You won’t even notice the dog crap until you’re really comfortable, then you’ll step all in it barefooted!! It’ll get all between your toes and junk. You’ll stink, and it’ll take forever to clean it all off. You’ll be standing there thinking to yourself “What the hell (literally)?! Who takes a dump in such pretty grass?!”
Yep. The devil wants to make our lives a living hell. Needless to say, this life could never be anything like what hell will be like! NOTHING! Still, if you think for one minute that, by switching partners, your life will be all better….think again!! I’m not saying that divorce is always avoidable, because it’s not. However, if you think relationships, people, or problems are disposable…again, think again! It’ll be same ol’ sh*t, different scenery.
Work hard to save relationships. That’s what this life is all about! Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone. Romans 12:18 yes, that includes your spouse!
