Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

beware...


beware

I was admiring some black-eyed susans
and other flowers outside a gift shop
in Mt. Gretna, PA about a week ago,
when I spied this insect, flexing
its forelimbs, in the very center
of one of the blooms.

It brought to mind that something
of great beauty may also contain
the element of danger.

The flower is made to attract
pollinators and this creature
was making use of the flowers attraction
to capture the unwary.

be vigilant and cautious at all times;
for that enemy of yours, the devil,
roams around like a lion roaring in fierce hunger,
seeking someone to seize upon and devour.”

- 1 Peter 5:8 AMP
