Psalm 7:15 (NLT)

15 They dig a deep pit to trap others,

    then fall into it themselves.


When we worry about others, we begin leaving our “hula hoop,” and begin excursing where we don’t belong.  If I take a hula hoop and take it over my head and place it on the ground around my body, that is about all I truly can change in this world: me.

When we get into other people’s koo-laid, somehow we are offended and surprised when they get into ours.  It is like the Golden rule:  Do to others as we would like have done unto us.  If we live this way, we don’t have to worry about the “boomerang effect,” in which something intended for a target, circles back and whops us up-side the head.
