Story of the day: Barely denting the pile?

In 1991, a judge fined brothers Geno and Russell Capozziello, owners of a Bridgeport, Connecticut, wrecking company, nearly $900,000 for operating an illegal dump. In 1986, on the empty lots surrounding their facility, the brothers began dumping debris from buildings. Eventually the mound of rubble and muck covered two acres and reached a height of thirty-five feet, the equivalent of a three-story building.

The state ordered them to clean it up, but the brothers claimed there was no place to dump it legally in Bridgeport, and they could not afford to have it hauled away. While spending more than $330,000 the previous year to have debris hauled away, they barely dented the pile. According to Geno, “It was never supposed to get this high. [Michael E. Hardin]

Quote of the day: Edward Rowell

“Like garbage, the effects of sinful habits have a way of accumulating beyond our plans and beyond our control.”

Bible verse of the day: 1 John 1:9 (NKJV)

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Prayer:

Dear Heavenly Father,

Search my heart and bring to the light any sin that may be piling up in my life so that I may confess it to You and be cleanses from any of my wrong doing. My heart’s desire is to continue to grow in Your Word and to minister to others. Thank You for Your Grace and forgiveness of all my sins and for loving me unconditionally just as I am.

In Jesus Name I pray,

Amen
