Hanging Around the Tree

Proverbs 7:7, 8I noticed among the young men, a youth who lacked judgment. He was going down the street near her corner, walking along in the direction of her house.  (NIV 1978)

My Musings – If you do not want to eat the apple, don’t keep hanging around the tree. That was Eve’s mistake and it is ours too. The “trees” are different for each one of us, but we keep walking in its direction when we should be running as fast as we can the other way.

My Advice – Do not kid yourself by thinking that you can brush up against sin and not become entangled. You cannot simply just have a bite, because one bite calls for another. Avoid situations that you know are wrong but are tempted by. Stay away, turn around, flee from them.
