It's Just My Character To Sting

It’s Just My Character To Sting

Sunday 20th June 2021 Devotion
Scripture:- Genesis 16
Topic:- It’s Just My Character To Sting

A Scorpion, being a very poor swimmer, asked a turtle to carry him on his back across a River.

Are you mad? Exclaimed the Turtle. “You will sting me while I’m swimming and I’ll drown.”

My dear Turtle, laughed the Scorpion, “if I were to sting you, you would drown and I would go down with you. Now, where is the logic in that?”

“You are right!” cried the Turtle. “Hop on!”

The Scorpion then climbed aboard and halfway across the river gave the Turtle a deadly sting.

As they both sank to the bottom, the Turtle resignedly said, “Do you mind if I ask you something? You said there’d be no logic in your stinging me. Why did you do it?”

“It has nothing to do with logic,” the drowning Scorpion sadly replied. “It’s just my character.”

So it is with SOME humans too. No matter how nice or good you are to them, it’s just their nature and character to sting (betray, rob, cheat, hurt, kill, blackmail, etc) for no reason.

Prayer Point:-
Oh Lord God, help me to change my character to your own image henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Lord’s Day!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
