Proverbs 7:6-8

While I was at the window of my house,
    looking through the curtain,
 I saw some naive young men,
    and one in particular who lacked common sense.
 He was crossing the street near the house of an immoral woman,
    strolling down the path by her house

Foolish people walk close to the edge of sin.

How many times do we knowingly get close to what we know is wrong? If we were serious about killing off sin in our life, we would not go close to it. Wisely, we would keep far from it.

“Inordinate curiosity” as Thomas a Kempis called it.

I wonder how close I can get to that fire without getting burned.

You fool.

Mark 10:27

Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.”

Nothing is impossible for God.

We rarely live this out day-to-day, living in total trust in His goodness and power.

It is lack of faith, I think, that holds back the hand of God so many times.

Lack of trust.


He really loves you and He really can do anything.


Just ponder the vast wonder of the universe for 10 seconds…..
