Australian Aboriginals created the boomerang, a weapon designed to return to the person who threw it. At first they were only used for hunting, but now they are part of the sport and entertainment world.
Unfortunately, what we say and do also boomerangs right back at us. If we don’t send out boomerangs, they cannot return to harm us. Consider some of these possibilities from Proverbs 26, (MSG).
You grab a mad dog by the ears when you butt into a quarrel that’s none of your business. (17)
People who shrug off deliberate deceptions, saying, “I didn’t mean it, I was only joking,”are worse than careless campers who walk away from smouldering campfires. (18-19)
When you run out of wood, the fire goes out; when the gossip ends, the quarrel dies down. (20)
Listening to gossip is like eating cheap candy; do you want junk like that in your belly?(22)
Prayer- Father God, help us only boomerang goodness, kindness, self-control and anything else that pleases you! Amen
