The time is coming when people who murder you will think that they are serving God. World history has terrible stories about people being killed for their faith and even christians killing other christians because they disagree on points of theology! Remember that "my peace will be with you" (John 16:33).

In our previous thought we suggested that our misdeeds can result in our own ill health, now we see that they can result in someone else's poor health. In Thought 1 we talked about the "one flesh" of marriage. Here we see the effects of being joined with a "bad lot". It is encouraging that the Bible tells the same story all the way through. God never changes, and 'one flesh' means 'one flesh'.
