What is Your Snare?

Let their table become a snare before them, And their well-being a trap. Psalm 69:22New King James Version  How is your table?                                                                                     

To me, the table represents material wealth.                                                                            

The tables of the rich in the ancients were feasts to show off their wealth.                             

A snare is used to catch a bird and kill it.                                                                              

Has your house or car become your slave? Do you give more time to them than you do to Jehovah? Are they slowly sucking the joy out of you because you have to constantly be upgrading your house and paying exorbitant money for monthly parking and gas?             Now there is nothing wrong with having an nice house or car but when you become obsessed with it becomes your cruel master and you its helpless slave. The same goes with fashion clothes and any other form of material objects that you become obsessed with and usually in dept up to your eyeballs.                                                                               

Your well being to me indicates your physical body. Are you spending more time at the gym trying to look like you did in your teens than you do in Bible study and prayer? Do you torture yourself doing exercises trying to look beautiful? What a stupid waste of time.                                                                                                                                              There is nothing wrong with keeping your body healthy but when it becomes an obsession that is when it becomes a cruel master and you the helpless slave.                  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for blessing me with daily blessings both spiritual and physical. I especially thank you for the blessing of our incredible loving relationship which I cherish most of all. I extol You in the name of Your most valuable gift Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                         

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.
