The Temptation to Linger

“A prudent man sees evil and hides himself, the naïve proceed and pay the penalty.” (Proverbs 27:12)

It is not strength to endure temptation when you could avoid it.  It doesn’t make you brave to put yourself in compromising situations or unhealthy environments.  The recovering alcoholic that decides to visit the bar isn’t strong – he’s deluded.

Stay away from things, people, and places that you know lead you to evil.  The brave are humble enough to understand their own weaknesses.

Matt 4:4 #Biblebites
