Stop Ringing Bells

Reg Grant on February 7, 2009 in DTS Devotional

Sincerity isn’t worth much if what you believe is wrong. In the middle ages, priests would often consecrate church bells to ward off evil spirits. They believed, sincerely, that demons caused thunderstorms, so they would have the bell ringers climb into the belfry and clang the bells to stop the storms. Besides adding to the cacophony of the storm, the bell ringers were often killed by lightning. “The LORD is good—indeed, he is a fortress in time of distress, and he protects those who seek refuge in him.” (Nah. 1:7) Stop ringing bells and get back on your knees. Sincerely.
