Aesop tells the ancient story of a boy hunting for locusts. The lad had caught quite a few when he saw a scorpion. Mistaking it for a locust, he reached out his hand to take it. The scorpion showed his stinger and said “If you had but touched me, you would have lost me and all your locusts too!”

There something you cannot embrace without losing what you have in the process. Life offers us choices, Christ graciously offers us forgiveness for what is past, and wisdom for what yet lies ahead.

Search out in me all hidden sin,

And may thy purity within

So cleanse my life that it may be

A temple wholly fit for thee.

The lessons of life are best learned when Christ is your teacher.
