    AVOIDING SIN

    Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men.
    Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away.
    PROVERBS 4:14-15

    There are plants in nature which are lovely to look at, but they are deadly. There are animals which seem harmless and even attractive that are dangerous. In life, there are many things which seem appealing, yet they have hidden traps.
    Sin is alot like that. Most sins are attractive and tempting. We find ourselves desiring things which could possibly harm us. Often we are lured by things which we know will hurt us, but we want them badly enough to take that risk.

    It doesn't make sense that we would do things which we know will harm us. The wages of sin is death, and yet it seems that we pursue sin believing that it's wages are the finest reward we could possibly attain. A wise person avoids life threatening situations at any cost. That is what we should do as Christians. We should do everything in our power to avoid sin, which should be as odious to us as death itself. It is not enough to try not to sin; we should do anything in our power to avoid it, turn from it, move as far away from it as possible, and leave it as far behind as can be. It is by a conscious effort that we avoid sin, just as it is by choice that we do good.

    Dear Heavenly Father, May we choose the right path, almighty God, turning from what we know You would not have us do, in order to pursue what is fitting in Your sight. Guide us through the power of Your Holy Spirit. Amen and Amen.

    Blessings to all, Judy <a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/17/17_1_22.gif' border=0></a>
