Isa 57:20-21 “…the wicked are like the tossing sea, which cannot rest… God says, ‘There is no peace for the wicked.’"

After a family dinner one Sunday afternoon my dad and uncles were sitting around the living room talking politics. Uncle Walter kept dozing off and dad would tickle his ear with a napkin corner. They all enjoyed watching him awaken and swat at his ear as if being bothered by a fly. Finally, when Walter awoke somewhat irritated, another uncle said, “You know, Walter, the Bible says there’s no rest for the wicked.” Uncle Walter responded, “I know. But they don’t have to keep me up with’em.”
