“Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men, from men whose words are perverse, who leave the straight paths to walk in dark ways, who delight in doing wrong and rejoice in the perverseness of evil, whose paths are crooked and who are devious in their ways.” Proverbs 2:12-15
Keep the Lord’s commands on your heart and be on guard at all times. In all things, employ wisdom over emotion. It doesn’t make you weak to resist the temptation to react. Think it through and ask yourself, “How will this affect my future?” If you can’t think of anything positive stemming from your actions, then don’t do it. Don’t let your friends, acquaintances, or socio-economic condition force you into doing something you know is wrong. We are losing too many of our young men and women to split-second decisions that have tragic consequences. The Troy Davis execution and countless others where the condemned’s guilt is questionable are sad reminders. Remove yourself from situations that lead to moral and physical death.
May God continue to bless you and your family. Make it a good day.
