Daily Bible Reading: Day 241
Sometimes what I read in God's word causes me to become uneasy. Today's reading is one of those times. What do we do with verses like 2 Peter 2:20-22?
For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first. For it would have been better for them never to have known the way of righteousness than after knowing it to turn back from the holy commandment delivered to them. What the true proverb says has happened to them: “The dog returns to its own vomit, and the sow, after washing herself, returns to wallow in the mire.”
At this point it leads me to earnestly pray for those I love who have walked away from the faith they once embraced. Very solemn words.
Grace, Peace, and Mercy,
