Prov 9:17-18 “Are you confused about life, don’t know what’s going on? Steal off with me, I’ll show you a good time! No one will ever know—I’ll give you the time of your life.” But they don’t know about all the skeletons in her closet, that all her guests end up in hell. (The Message)
Have you ever eaten something that looks great until you get it in your mouth and you cant get it out quick enough? Eaten something that you have been craving only to be left bloated and regretting ordering milk? Isn’t it funny how temptation, which we know is bad for us, can look so good and enticing? I think the devil knows what makes us tick! This scripture is warning us about the end result of giving into temptation – it ends in hell. As the saying goes, if its too good to be true, it probably is. Don’t be the person that looks like a fool because you couldn’t say no – stay strong!
We are believing: That you to have the strength and courage of your convictions to resist temptation that is going to be detrimental to you. Get to know the Holy Spirit’s prompting when something isn’t quite right and avoid the ‘skeletons in her closet!’
