I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.
- Jeremiah 17:10
My dear friend Errol sent me the above scripture via email without a subject line to forewarn me! ...And so the power of the scripture hit me full in the face!
Just a couple of days ago, he had asked me the following:
'Why does a man who has decided to fast 40 days, patiently keeps his fast each day to the second but, on any other day, when he comes home famished, loses his patience if his wife has delayed in cooking his meal?'
(Probably, that hour would have counted as a more acceptable sacrifice than the 40 days of fasting!)
A GREAT LESSON TO LEARN ....WOULDN'T YOU AGREE?
