Proverbs 26:11: As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.
Meditation: It’s interesting how often the Bible compares us to animals. Sheep, wolves, beasts, dogs etc. Sheep aren’t very bright, wolves devour sheep but what about dogs? Every dog owner has witnessed at one time or another their dog going back to their vomit (yuck!). We are disgusted when we see that and make sure they don’t come back anytime soon to give us kisses! Yet God compares those who go back to their folly or foolishness to those dogs that return to their vomit. Ponder that a moment. Makes you think twice about going back and doing that very thing that God told you not to do, right?
Prayer: Lord, you know that I’m one who likes pets, especially dogs but keep me from doing those things that are foolish and sinful and if I do stumble may I be sure not to go back and wallow in my foolishness! Amen.
