Think Before You Speak!

15 Feb



Do not agree to do or give someone whatever they wish, before you hear their desire.

In Mark 6:16-25  we have the story of Herod and Herodias.  Herod put John in prison because he told him that “It was not lawful for him to have his brother’s wife”.  Herod feared John knowing that he was a holy man. Herodias disliked John because of what he said to Herod and she wanted him dead.  On Herod’s birthday Herodias daughter danced for him.  King Herod loved her performance so much  that he said “Ask me whatever you want, and I will give it to you.” The He swore to her, “Whatever you ask me, I will give you, up to half my kingdom.”

At this moment the King is not thinking clearly. He was caught up in the moment and did not think about the fact that as King what ever he said was law and it was done.

After the King makes his statement, the daughter of Herodias, runs to her mother to inquire on what should she ask.  She responds, ask for Johns head on a platter. The King is in shock, but as King his word is law. In spite of the fact that he does not want to kill John, he has given his word. He kills John.

This story is the perfect example of the reason why one should not agree to do or give someone what ever they wish before you hear their desire.

Everything that we say has a consequence, good or bad.

Be Blessed!

      You need to select do not follow when you get the email notification. It sounds like you clicked on follow more than once.
