Did you ever hear this? The anaconda snake cannot cross a floor of wet teak boards. I am thinking of getting teak floors installed in my house. Mind you, I don’t live in South America, where they live, but still…one should be prepared, right?
Actually our time and money might be better spent in other ways.
Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. ( 2 Timothy 4:2, NIV)
But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect. (1 Peter 3:15, NIV)
Prayer – Lord, when our minds work into a frenzy of foolishness, please bring us back to common sense. For Christ who lived a common life on our behalf. Amen
