6-11-14 Fuzziness

"What a nice soft fuzzy friendly bug!" Said Little Danny as he reached out to pet the bumblebee, that was busy on a flower.  The next thing his mother knew was that Little Danny was holding his finger, running and screaming for mommy.

"What happened?" his mother asked as she looked at the swelling finger.

Little Danny tried to talk between sobs, "I saw, huh-huh-huh, this fuzzy bug, huh-huh-huh, and I tried to pet it, huh-huh-huh, and it bit me, huh-huh-huh. The fuzzy caterpillars, huh-huh-huh,, like it when I, huh-huh-huh, pet on them." 

"I guess you won't do that again, will you?"

"I just wanted to pet him. He's a mean bug!"

Dan never pet another bumblebee.  In fact, he left the room if a bee came into it while at work.  Once the bee was gone he would tell me this story again - every time. It was quite a traumatic experience for a little toddler. He would relate how that bug was deceitful.  He had gotten stung by something that looked warm and cuddly.

The devil works in a similar manner.  He is deceitful.  We can learn from others that he will hurt us, we can read it in the Bible or we can learn by messing with him.  Once stung by the devil, we will remember how he operates. 

For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. 2 Corinthians 11:13-15
