The Frog and The Scorpion

Y’all remember the story about the scorpion and the frog? Well, both of them wanted to cross a stream and the frog agreed to piggyback the scorpion. Midway across the stream, the scorpion plunged his stinger into the back of the frog. As they both began to sank the frog ask, “Why” and the scorpion said, “It’s my nature.” The Bible calls “the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world . . . the accuser” (Revelation 12:9–10), “the ruler of this world” (John 12:31), and “the god of this age” (2 Corinthians 4:4). “The god of this age has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ” (2 Corinthians 4:4). So he not only speaks what is false, he hides what is true. Unlike the frog, We can’t be outwitted by the scorpion’s nature because God sees behind enemy lines and tells us all we need to know to not be ignorant of Satan’s designs. The Lord Jesus is no less a warrior today than in the days of old. So I urge you again: Come to him as willing soldiers of the Prince of Peace and learn to say, “He trains my hands for war” (Psalm 144:1).
