His Violence Comes Down On His Own Head – Daily Inspiration, August 9, 2012

“He who is pregnant with evil and conceives trouble gives birth to disillusionment. He who digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit he made. The trouble he causes recoils on himself; his violence comes down on his own head. I will give thanks to the Lord because of his righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.” Psalm 7:14-17

Those who live to cause trouble and create strife will find themselves always embroiled in trouble and strife. The trap they are so intent on setting for others will snare them in the process. The sad reality is oftentimes innocent people are also hurt. Instead of sowing seeds of discord, plant love, kindness, patience and compassion. Don’t do evil for evil, but pray to Lord for protection against those who mean us harm, whether through violent acts or deceit. God will execute final judgment. We can take comfort and assurance in that.

God bless you today and always.
