19 Bible verses about evil and evil doers (Scriptures)

Last updated on July 12th, 2020 at 07:24 pm

A few weeks ago, a 6-year-old girl was rushed into the hospital.

When she presented, she couldn’t stand upright and was in severe pain.

Her mother stood by her side and was concerned.

As she initially described what happened, she said, she had run into a pot of boiling hot water.

And because of that, she sustained significant burns to large parts of her body.

Quickly, my team and I resuscitated the young girl and treated her wounds.

But as each day passed, we began to realize that the mother was lying.

The mechanism of injury to the patient didn’t make sense.

And so, one of my colleagues decided to ask the little girl some questions.

For days, she was unable to speak or say anything because she was afraid of her mum.

But surprisingly, she found her voice and decided to tell all.

Her mum had gotten angry with her for coming home late.

As she said, she boiled hot water and poured it on her body.

In fact, she didn’t blink an eye until the next day when she rushed her to the hospital.
