LETTER TO THE EDITOR

"There is so much good in the worst of us and so much bad in the best of us, that it behooves any of us to talk about the rest of us". Robert Lewis Stevenson
"The good are not always good in all things, and the wicked are not always wicked in all things". Bishop Fulton Sheen
AND from the oldest and wisest Book of all: "And just as you judge and criticize and condemn others, you will be judged and criticized and condemned, and in accordance with the measure you (use to) deal out to others, it will be dealt out again to you". Matt. 7:2 Amplified
Could and should we not all do some soul searching before we cast the first stone? COULD MERCY AND TRUTH BE THE ORDER OF THE DAY?
We are caught up in a society of win, win. Win the game, win the race, win the argument, have the last word. But we are serving THE ONE who will have the last word and HE knows the thoughts and intents of our hearts. WOW !!
As we make our way through this wicked world we are told to be "wise as serpents and harmless as doves" Matt. 10:16 and "do not give that which is holy to the dogs, and do not throw your pearls before hogs, lest they trample upon them with their feet and turn and tear you in pieces". Matt. 7:6 Amplified
Pray for discernment to recognize the hogs and the dogs. "You will fully know them by their fruits" Matt. 7:20
BE WISE AND BEWARE
