Proverbs 26:27 “He who digs a pit will fall into it, and he who rolls a stone, it will come back on him.”
Many years ago I was privileged to attend a seminar on alcohol and drug abuse. One of the most vivid memories I took away from there was an illustration used by one of the psychiatrists who spoke to us. He said an alcoholic, trying to rehabilitate himself, was like a person attempting to push a boulder bigger than himself up a steep hill. No matter how much effort he put into it or how far he pushed the boulder, there would come a time he could not control it and it would roll back on top of him.
That bit of wisdom did not start with this psychiatrist, but with Solomon: “he who rolls a stone, it will come back on him.”
This is a graphic picture of many people today who are trying to bear burdens bigger than themselves. The good news is God is bigger than any burden. His love for you is bigger than your boulder. He can push the boulder over the hill of Calvary!
