Apples of Gold - February 6 |

The dog returns to his vomit because that's what dogs do. The sow returns to wallowing in the mire because that is what a hog does. Neither the dog nor the pig has had its nature changed. Neither has been "born again" or been changed into another species. The dog experienced a temporary purging and the sow underwent a washing. Neither "work" had any eternal meaning, no matter how it might have spruced up appearances --like the whitewashing of a tomb (Matthew:23:27). --TBC

"But is 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." --2 Peter:2:22
