Hear ye
Give ear

Be not proud
Humble thyself before the Lord

Never cease to
Give glory to God

In times of blessing
In times of darkness

Jeremiah 13 verse 15 to 16 speaks poetically. The importance to hear the Word from God. Only one ear is mentioned. It means listen from one ear and enters into mind, heart and spirit. “Be not proud” means to be more humble before the Lord. “Give glory to God” emphasizes to praise Him in our good times before hardship occurs.

May this bless you and improve your walk in the Lord.

Lip

Lip

Do we often reflect ourselves?
In heart, attitude, motivation, mind and actions
Do our actions speak louder than our mouths?
Or our lips are louder?

Proverbs 8:13 (KJV)
The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

“Living in pride” suddenly jumped to me realizing its acronym Lip. It seemed makes sense that those who lived in pride tend to be boastful. No wonder I can’t stand with those who brag. That shows God’s dislike the haughty, proud and boastful. According to dictionary, lip means

  1. Either of the two fleshy parts or folds forming the margins of the mouth and functioning in speech.
  2. Usually, lips. these parts as organs of speech: I heard it from his own lips.
  3. A projecting edge on a container or other hollow object: the lip of a pitcher.
  4. A liplike part or structure, especially of anatomy.

Consequences of Actions

Piles of wood circling a tent
Flames burn on the piles of wood
A tent is circled by flames
Camping in the middle of the forest
Wild animals keep away from them

Ten ladies sleep in the tent peacefully
Exhausted with their retreat
Retreat in having quiet time
As their tent lean against a large sturdy tree

Alas, there is a hole on top of the tent
An undaunted slender young cobra
Hops from trees to trees with its tail
Targeting the tree where the tree is
Swinging its body in triumph
Then it abruptly drops itself into the tent’s hole

Thump!
It falls onto a lady’s face with its stuck out tongue
Waken
That light sleeper lady
Shrieks sharply in fear

Everyone wakes up
A brave fighter lady
Grabs the young cobra’s head
Sandwich cobra’s head
To prevent it from opening its jaw
Others cooperate and grab its body to tail
Leaving the fearful stoned light sleeper lady
They left the tent

In the count to three
They throw the poor snake
Into the hot burning flames
Rushing back into the tent
Sterilizing their hands from bacteria
Regaining their peace
Soothing the frightened frozen lady

In the hot burning tall flames
The poor young cobra
Cries and regretting for being
Too curious
Too haughty
As it turns to ashes instantly
As its friends watch in horror
Fearful of such predicament
Regretting their actions for
Sneering the poor young cobra

The young cobras return home
Confessing their sins to their parents
Their parents seek the poor young cobra’s parents
Seeking their forgiveness

The cobras’ parents resent them
Kick them out of the nest
Sobbing of their beloved two years old young cobra’s predicament
They left with disappointed looks
Return to their nests and discipline their young cobras

This story played in my imagination supposedly to be humour. Unexpectedly, the story continues to concentrate upon the cobra unravelling its reason to do so. Then I realised that the poor young cobra signifies the folly of youth and the bullying happen during schooldays. Pride causes downfall.
