    THE WEB OF SIN

    His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.
    He shall die without instructions, and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.
    PROVERBS 5:22-23

    A spider toiled along, crafting an amazing web which stretched forth eighteen inches square. Once finished, the spider spun new webs connecting itself to the corners, until a labyrinth of gossamer filled the corner in which it stood. While the spider busily worked, a larger spider silently crept up alongside. At the right moment, the large spider entered the web, and the creator of it was trapped with no escape.

    Sin is like a web. As we become occupied with the things we should not be doing, we become oblivious to the dangers that surround us. We feel that we are in control when, in fact, we are in a very precarious position. There is no good end that can come from a life of sin. We become "holden with its cords," and we cannot get loose. Ultimately, we must answer for our actions before God. If we do not repent of our misdeeds, they become a noose around our neck, and through our folly we find ourselves hopelessly seperated from God. It is good that we always pay attention to the ways we live our lives. It is when we grow complacent that we stand in the greatest danger of losing that which is most important. With God's help, we will never be ensnared.

    Dear Heavenly Father, We turn our attention to so many things that we should not. Our sight is distracted by so much folly. Forgive us when we stray, and shine forth Your great light that we might follow its beam back to the source of all life. 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_20v.gif' border=0></a>
