No need to read tea leaves

An interesting card arrived in today's letterbox.  I wish that the deliverer had first obeyed the "No Junk Mail" sign.
Healing comes not from reading tea leaves or dissecting frog's livers at midnight of a full moon. 

Healing comes instead through Jesus Christ.

The ancients were ordered by God not to bring any occult practices into the promised land:

“When you come into the land that the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominable practices of those nations. There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord. And because of these abominations the Lord your God is driving them out before you. You shall be blameless before the Lord your God, for these nations, which you are about to dispossess, listen to fortune-tellers and to diviners. But as for you, the Lord your God has not allowed you to do this. Deuteronomy 18:9-14

and in 2 Timothy 4:3 there is a warning that people will turn from truth to that which tickles there ears: 

"For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear."

Find healing in Jesus Christ.
