Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men. Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away. (Pro 4:14-15)
Most of the time, you can taste it in your throat. Or feel it in your gut – right behind your belly button. Sin.
A man I know used to travel down a country highway on his commute. There was a porn shop sitting back there, right next to a gas station. He got addicted (to the porn, not the gas). It was ruining his life. And he began to change his ways.
He was doing great kicking the the habit, but one day he forgot to get gas in the city. On the way home, he stopped for gas – and fell back into that nasty habit.
He needed to find another way home or another job. It was a good job and the nearest way home other than that country road would take him 30 minutes out of the way.
Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away.
Trust your gut. Spit it out.
Pthu! to Sin.
