Proverbs 1:10: My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent.
It’s amazing how simple this instruction is and yet how hard it is to follow. Wisdom declares that I resist following after sin believing that God’s way brings life. When I sin, I act in folly somehow thinking that I know best, that I understand life, pleasure, joy, satisfaction, peace, and fulfillment. May God settle a deep conviction within me that despite the appealing nature of sin, I would truly believe that his way is best and vehemently refuse to consent to sin’s enticement.
