Proverbs in 365 Devotions

Proverbs 1:10 My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent.

Do Not Consent

Daniel Castor

This is a very practical thing for us all.  It seems very simple. If people are trying to temp you to sin, don't do it! But even the spiritual strong can be brought to the darkest of places through a simple bad decision.  When people are trying to persuade you they will use any trick in the book. They will speak of all the benefits that there are in going with them. They are crafty and deceitful, they seem friendly... and the offer always seems like a good deal.  But Solomon says do not give into them! Don't believe their lies. Don't even begin to walk that way or you will see where their path leads.

Proverbs 13:40 Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
