You might recall the bedtime fairy tale of the ‘Princess and the Pea.’

Here is a bedtime story that is far less familiar.

“(Only Og king of Bashan was left of the remnant of the Rephaim. His bed was made of iron. Isn’t it in Rabbah of the Ammonites? It is 13 feet six inches long and six feet wide by a standard measure.) (Deuteronomy 3:11 HCSB).”

Humongous humor?

No; there were giants in the land.

It’s been said, ‘You made your bed-now lie in it.’

That’s a fact; there are consequences.

“Don’t be deceived: God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows he will also reap,  because the one who sows to his flesh will reap corruption from the flesh, but the one who sows to the Spirit will reap eternal life from the Spirit (Galatians 6:7-8 HCSB).”
