Lessons Learned from a Bug…

A much prettier bug than those I encountered on Monday….

“It just won’t die!!”

We spent some of the past weekend doing work outside. One of my “jobs” was to move and stack some of the wood so that we could clean off the carport. As I was moving the wood I came across several creepy-crawl-y bugs. Now, I don’t mind the occasional ant or catapillar. But these bugs that I was encountering were rather large and icky looking.

I kept trying to step on them or smush them with my foot but since I am rather uncorrdinated it ended up being a warning stomp; and the bug would just scurry away. It really made me angry. It seemed that no matter what I tried the bugs just wouldn’t die!

As I was walking away thinking about this and trying to not get totally creeped out, I was reminded of the spiritual side of this story.

“I tell you, my friends, do not fear those who kill the body, and after that have nothing more that they can do.”
~Luke 12:4

I was reminded that we as Christians are very much like those bugs. The Devil can throw whatever he wants at us and it may kill us physically but it can’t kill us spiritually. We are alive on the inside–being renewed day by day (2 Corinthians 4:16).

Until next time,

Bailey Sue
