DAILY DEVO... remove the stinger

Have you ever been stung by a bee?

If you have, then you know that the fist thing you must do is remove the stinger. As much as it hurts, that little thing must be removed or it could be deadly.

Most likely, if you have been stung in the past, you probably avoid bees altogether to avoid being stung again.

Isn't that exactly what we do when we get stung by "people"? Those who have hurt us, or talked about us, or disrespected us, or made us angry we avoid them as much as possible because we haven't taken the time to remove the "stinger".

Just like a bee sting, it hurts at first but when we pull the stinger out, it begins to feel less painful.

Don't let the sting of unforgiveness, anger, pride, malice, and division keep you from being around the "bees" in your life.

Hebrews 10:21 says to "come near God with a sincere heart and a sure faith because we have been made free from a guilty conscience."

Don't let the bees of life kill your spirit, draw close to God and watch Him take away the sting.
