Encouraging Words 4/27/10 Saving the Worst for Last

From: Love Worth Finding

“But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet show I unto you a more excellent way.” 1 Corinthians 12:31

Satan always gives the best first and the worst last. For example, Proverbs 20:17 says, “The bread of deceit is sweet, but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.” With Satan, it always starts sweet, but it does not end that way.

Satan is a counterfeiter and a deceiver, and he is guilty of false advertising.
•He doesn’t show the drunkard in the gutter covered with flies.

•He doesn’t show the addict shaking uncontrollably from another night of detox.

•He doesn’t show the ruined lives from sexually transmitted diseases.

He always gives the best first and the worst last. Jesus gives the best last.

Do you have a teenager in your home? Then, call a homeless shelter or prison and see if you can bring in your teen for a tour.
