Natural Wisdom Part 9: A Tale of Two Bees

Run from sin and don’t look back!!



If we get free from danger, free from addiction (etc.), we have to fly away. If we keep going back to it, even for a moment or a glimpse or a taste, we will fall back into the water, fall back into the danger.

Hello Readers, hope all’s well. If you missed the latest post on my blog (the update post), I am now doing posts once a week instead of three times per week. I hope that with this new schedule, more Readers will digest a higher percentage of my posts. If I’m able to return to the three posts-per-week pace I had before, I will.

It’s time for another post in my new series, Natural Wisdom. This is a series where I write about some of the lessons God has taught me, through nature. God teaches us so much through nature if we’re willing to watch and listen to see and hear the Wisdom.

Today’s post is inspired by an amusing incident I encountered while spending time in nature. It’s a humorous story of two bees, one of which I was able to rescue from a dangerous situation, and another which … well, you’ll see. But this brief incident which I’ll tell you about today taught me something about turning to God and turning away from our sins.

There will be times in life when, even if we aren’t following God, He will reach down and pull us out of danger. He will save us, even if we don’t care anything about Him. At that point, if we then choose to go right back to whatever danger we were in before-whether that be an addiction or some other situation-the consequences will be on us.

This is one of those times when the story I will tell you today will show my point much clearer than any words of mine. So without anything further from me, read on and let me tell you about a crazy bee I found outside.

Save the Bees!!

Lately I’ve been doing a lot of swimming in a pond near my house. I’ve written about that pond a few times before. It’s a quiet, secluded, “off-the-map” kind of hidden place. It’s a real blessing in my life, an example and reminder for me of the beauty of God’s Creation, nature.
