Prudent choices?



Prudent choices? Despite knowing the futility, I'm sometimes drawn to unattainable pleasures like certain foods. While rationality suggests moderation, a succulent steak can defy restraint. Their allure overrides prudent choices, tempting even the most disciplined. Despite the consequences, their appeal remains potent, a seductive force defying logic and restraint, leaving me eyeing leftovers with undeniable desire.


Think about it. It’s like that with sin. We know the rules, but it’s often just so attractive that we find ourselves putting those rules on the shelf for the sake of our appetites.


God’s Word tells us: “My son, if sinful men entice you, do not give in to them. If they say, “Come along with us; let's lie in wait for innocent blood, let's ambush some (Proverbs 1:10).”


Worldly possessions can ensnare us, diverting focus from spiritual needs. Sin's allure can lead to destruction. Indulging may seem appealing, but it's a trap. Rejecting today's temptation avoids tomorrow's regret. Sin's beauty is its danger; resisting is wisdom, safeguarding against future pitfalls and ensuring spiritual well-being.


We pray. “Heavenly Father, grant us the wisdom to discern between temporal pleasures and lasting spiritual fulfillment. Strengthen our resolve to resist worldly temptations that lead astray. Help us choose the path of righteousness, safeguarding us from harm and securing eternal well-being. In Jesus name Amen.”


“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.

Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34)
