"Please don't listen to lies about me, the forked tongues of devils ever seeking to poison and destroy. Please, hear me with your own true ears; see me with your own true eyes, believe your own true heart."
When something is bothering me and I just can't quite understand the problem, or how to resolve it, I sometimes turn to the Bible; ask God in meditative prayer, open the Good Book, and with my eyes closed point to a place on the page. This was today's answer to my question.
1 Samuel 24:14 - After whom is the king of Israel come out? after whom dost thou pursue? after a dead dog, after a flea.
