I have a couple of kids that catch poison ivy very easily and one of them is my teen daughter. Living in the country like we do, there's an abundance of it but they know where most of it is and stay away from it, so I was surprised when she came to me and showed me her blisters.
"Mom, why do I get it and you don't?"
I had to laugh at her question. "Because I don't go where the poison ivy is and you do."
It was no sooner out my mouth then God flashed the neon 'Duh!' sign He has just for me.
Why do some things affect me that don't bother or affect my Christian sisters? Because I go where poison ivy is and they don't.
It's made me, once again, consider where I walk. Am I tip toeing through poison ivy hoping and praying I don't get it? It would be so much better if I just stayed away from areas where I know the poison ivy grows!
"Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men, but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil." Ephesians 5:15-16 (NAS)
