Thought from the Word

A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD

Proverbs 17:14

“The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water: therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with.”


When a quarrel begins and is not stopped soon it is like allowing water to start to leak out of a dam.They both need to be stopped because both of them get worse and worse.This is also true of sinful habits.Sinful habits need to be stopped as the habits gets worse and worse.Then they get harder and harder to quite as the addiction gets a stronger hold on a person.If you never take your first drink of alcohol you never have to worry about becoming an alcoholic.If you never smoke your first cigarette you will never get hooked on the nicotine habit.Once a sinful habit is started it is hard to stop.

The standard of the world, and the standard of the Lord Jesus — are widely different.
