Today's Photograph. . . We Are Warned To Be On Our Guard So We Don't Get Caught Up In The Same Sin We Are Trying To Help Our Brother With (Ron T)
Bible Study Verse
Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. (NIV)
Have you ever tried to untangle a buffalo that was caught up in wire? It's not as easy as you think.
A bad way to do it is rush the buffalo and grab hold of the wire, he is going to run and you will likely get caught in the same wire you are trying to free him from.
The best way to free him would be to gently haze him into some corrals and catch him in a squeeze chute; at that point you can safely cut the wire off with some fencing pliers. (Ron T)
It's the same thing with people, if you see your brother in sin don't rush him and throw him to the ground. Try to gently show him his errors and lead him back to God's path.
We are warned to be on our guard so we don't get caught up in the same sin we are trying to help our brother with. The verse goes on to say that we will fulfill the law of Christ by carrying each other's burdens.
Jesus has our back, we need to have our brother's back.
Sportsmen's Tip of the Day
You can fit a 20 gauge empty shotgun shell into a 12 gauge empty shell, these make neat little survival kits, put matches in one, fire tender in another, maybe one with small fishing hooks and some monofilament line.
