Over the weekend, I was doing some odds and ends around the house when I had an encounter with a nest of ground bees.
I had just put up some fall decorations on our front porch when I noticed some weeds in the landscape in front of the porch. Naturally, I knelt down and start pulling weeds. As I started to get a large hand full of weeds, I felt something sharp and almost thorny at my wrist. At first, I kept going, but I quickly stopped when I realized that this pinching feeling wasn’t going away. Suddenly, I realized that I was being stung by a bee and there were tons of other bees swarming around me. I quickly dropped my handful of weeds and ran into the front yard trying to get away from the swarm of bees. Remarkably, I was only stung once.
Two days later, my wrist still hurts and itches.
The bee sting got me thinking some key “Be” verses from the Bible that merit some extra reflection.
I’m sure this is just a start. What other “Be” verses can you add to the list above? When was the last time you were stung by a bee?
