The Chief Tool of the Devil
"Mine eyes are ever toward the Lord…" Psalm 25:15
There's a story about the devil auctioning off his tools. He had a high price on pride, laziness, arrogance, hate, envy, and jealousy.
But there was one tool that had a sign under it that read, "Not For Sale." Someone said, "What is that tool? Why isn't it for sale?" "Well," he said, "I can't afford to get rid of that one. It's my chief tool, discouragement. With this tool, I can pry open a heart. And once I get in, I can do most anything I want."
Do you want me to tell you why you get discouraged? I'll give it to you in a nutshell - you've taken your eyes off God!
Are you discouraged? If not, praise God! Then find someone who is, so that you can give them the encouragement they need in Jesus Christ. Maybe it's your next-door neighbor. Maybe it's a co-worker. Maybe it's your spouse.
