Be Aware

Have you ever watched squirrels? It is fun to watch them run across the road. But it is more fun to just sit on a front porch and watch squirrels as they run through the yard. As they are running, they will stop and look up. Then they run some more and stop.The squirrels stop and look because they are listening and watching for danger.
Verse 8 of our Bible Reading today says, “Control yourselves and be careful! The devil is your enemy. And he goes around like a roaring lion looking for some person to eat.” The devil is our enemy. He is always trying to get us to sin.
We need to be like a squirrel. We should always be aware of what is happening around us. Then we will be able to know when the devil is tempting us to sin.
The devil tempted Jesus, too. But Jesus depended on God’s Word to help Him resist the devil. We can do that, too.
