Do not envy the violent or choose any of their ways. PROVERBS 3:31, NIV
While my wife and I were traveling through the British Isles, we decided to visit Ireland and Northern Ireland. We took a train from London to Holyhead in Wales on the coast, where we would take a ferry over to Ireland. As we waited for the ferry, the wind picked up, and rain came down harder and harder with every passing hour; we could tell this was going to be rough voyage.
Once we departed we encountered the most intense waves I had ever experienced in my life. For several second the ferry would go up on a steep incline, and then the ferry would come down the other side of the wave in a steep drop. No one on the ferry got any rest that night as we wondered if we were ever going to make it to Ireland-but we did. The following morning we spent the day exploring Dublin, and then we took a train north to Belfast in Northern Ireland. After exploring the city, we took one more bus to the very northern coast to a place called the Giant’s Causeway, our final destination.
A causeway is an elevated path build to cross a body of water. There was no actual causeway is an elevated path build to cross a body water. There was no actual causeway here, just a fascinating natural occurrence where about forty thousand interlocking basalt columns hardened into intriguing shapes due to a past volcanic eruption, extending pout into the sea several hundred feet. Old legends say that a giant from Ireland and a giant from Scotland challenged each other to a fight, and so they build a causeway in order to cross the sea between their islands.
Satan works hard to convince people that the best way to solve a problem is by fighting. He’s even figured out a way to make people admire and envy people who fight. Many movies and TV shows included as much fighting as possible. Satan is doing this to convince you that violence is the normal way to resolve problems. Don’t fall for Satan’s tricks.
