Don’t Get Too Close!

Ryan was mowing his lawn with a riding mower. His little girl wanted to be with him. Sometimes she came too close to the mower. Ryan knew about the danger of the mower, and he warned his daughter, “Don’t get too close!”
Sometimes I hear about Christians who get too close to the dangers of sin. They love and serve God, but sometimes they fail. They are tempted and give in to their physical desires instead of doing what God wants.
Our Bible Reading today talks about sin. Verses 14-15 help us understand what sin is really like. “You are tempted by the evil things you want. Your own desire leads you away and traps you. Your desire grows inside you until it results in sin. Then the sin grows bigger and bigger and finally ends in death.”
Be careful today! Run away from sin. Stay close to God and ask Him to help you do what is right. God will bless you for staying faithful to Him.
