Proverbs 9:15 NIV

By March 9, 2023No Comments

“calling out to those who pass by, who go straight on their way,” 

Are you striving to live a clean, Godly life? Then you are the target. Here we are told that those people walking the straight and narrow get special attention from the evil one and his demons. If you go through your day and are not blind and deaf and mute you will face temptation. I’ve quoted Jay Kessler before saying that the average junior high student faces more sexual temptation on their way to and from school than our grandfathers did going out looking for it on Saturday nights. There is powerful truth in that statement and Kessler actually said it before social media and internet access existed. In this life there will always be those who seek to trip you up or get you to cheapen God’s journey for your life. In business they will tempt you to cut corners, take advantage of others, cheat or use some other form of low handed business tactics. In social activities they will seek to have you join them in undermining relationships, whether yours or others, and take advantage of others to satisfy your wants. Even in the spiritual area they will want you to get caught up in religious arguments and meaningless battles of the day. Whatever area of life that can be exploited and disrupted Satan will always have a willing person trying to drag you into a place of darkness with them. Today keep your eyes on Jesus and your feet moving directly toward Him. #BeTheEdge
