Go away, spiders!
Joro spiders were all over north Georgia [jor-jah] last summer. They spun thick, gold webs!
The spiders belong in East Asia. They are big and may look scary. But they hardly ever bite.
Pray: Ask God to teach you the things that you should fear and to help you when you are afraid.

They spin wheel-shaped webs that are very strong. Females have yellow, blue, and red markings on their bodies. A Joro spider with its legs extended is larger than the palm of your hand! Spider webs are strong enough to catch bugs. But you can break webs apart. Job 8:14 reminds us that all those who forget God are no stronger than a spider’s web.
