Spiders Are In King’s Palaces


Prov. 30:28 The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings’ palaces.

Imagine that. Even Kings have spiders in their houses. They have the same problems as ordinary people. The Bible makes the point that some things in life are unavoidable. There doesn’t seem to be much point in apologizing for them. They’re everywhere and everyone has to deal with them.

It’s easy to get it in our head, that we are the only ones having problems. It’s just not true.  Everyone does. It’s called life.

The harsh reality that there is no perfect world is unsettling to an idealist. Some folks change jobs, some change churches, some change friends or houses looking for a spider free world.

Perfection is always just out of reach. Life is not perfect nor is it fair, it’s just life. Yes, some houses may have fewer than others, but they’re there nevertheless.

There is no spider free life. What do I do about it?  I destroy the cobwebs and go on.

  2. Great job Elder, so true. In the book All the Kings Men by Robert Penn warren, there is an incredible section about the spider’s web. All of life is like a Spider’s web. You touch one part and the whole of it reverbrates and awakens the spider!

  3. Classic…when it comes to the spiders of life I have one word of plagiarized advice…we all just need to learn to, “Deal with it!” Thanks Elder
