Things They Thought They Left Behind

In Thailand, government officials have set in motion an unusual plan to curb littering in the nation’s Khao Yai National Park. Environment minister Silpa-archa announced on Facebook he intended to send the trash to the homes of tourists who litter in the park. Silpa-­archa warned in the post, “Your trash—we’ll send it back to you.”

Officials say they have already boxed up and returned litter to one group of campers by mail. Littering in the park is also punishable by up to five years behind bars.

Possible Preaching Angle:

What happens in Thailand, doesn’t stay in Thailand! As Scripture says, “You may be sure your sin will find you out” (Num. 32:23)
