Many years ago in Siam Thailand of today…

Many years ago in Siam (Thailand of today) when the king wanted to bring down someone in his kingdom, he had a shrewd method of accomplishing his aim. He would give his enemy a gift. It was not an ordinary gift. It was a gift of a white elephant. Since a white elephant was considered sacred, it was expected to receive only the best of care and the finest of feed. It could not be given away or sold since it was a gift from the king. The care of the animal eventually impoverished the king’s enemy. So it is with the gifts of the devil. Satan gives to us something very exciting and alluring but once we have receive it, it is almost impossible to get rid of and eventually it brings us to our ruin. So it is with addictions: drug, alcohol, gambling, sexual, perversion, on and on. This is Just-a-Minute with Ed Boggess
