It was on August 13th that the first live “murder hornet” of 2021 was spotted approximately one kilometer from the Canada-US border. These intimidating hornets are up to five centimeters long and have a sting similar to being plunged with a red hot thumb tack. It is a sting anyone would want to avoid. Did you know the Bible speaks of a sting that we can get impaled with? Thankfully it also tells us how we can avoid this sting. In 1 Corinthians it reads, “The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” The sting of death is separation from God, and His commandments reveal to us that we do not measure up, and that is greatly concerning, but thankfully through faith in Christ that sting can be avoided.
