Today's Favorite Verse: Numbers 25:8
"And he went after the man of Israel into the tent, and thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the women through her belly. So the plague was stayed from the children of Israel."
I have been intrigued by the word plague. I find the discussion of it consumes this part of the Old Testament. I have been pondering on their plagues and how they fit my day. I felt that pornography was a plague of my day. Now I actually read the connection of whoredom's or sexual immorality as a plague of their day. That truly is a sin of my day. It is something so prevalent and common place there is no shame. You think of a plague bringing physical death, but it can also mean a spiritual death. I think I would much rather die of a physical plague than to die spiritually. For death has no sting when you slip through the eternities into eternal life. To die spiritually, being pass feeling to the point I no longer desire to even repent, would bring damnation to my soul. That would absolutely break my heart.
