There are some who ask God for His saving grace to cleanse them
from their hopeless and sinful lives. Of those, there are some who
fail to give over all their lives to be cleansed. As a result, their human
nature draws them to return to the same sinful life and depravity they
lived before. With God, there is no "halfway saved." It is all or nothing.
If you allow God to have all of you, your nature will become like His.
If you don't give God your all, your human nature will take you back to
where you started.

Read 2 Peter 2:22

"Of them the proverbs are true: 'A dog returns to its vomit,' and 'A
sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud.'" (NIV)

"But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog
is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her
wallowing in the mire." (KJV)

Isnt there a proverb as a dog returns to its vomit so a fool returns to his folly? I forget.

This is an interesting photo - it reminds me of another reason I do not eat pork. But I do say that bacon did have a nice taste to it.

I am going to check these verses out in greater detail.

Thanks for sharing.
