What win I, if I gain the thing I seek?
A dream, a breath, a froth of fleeting joy.
Who buys a minute's mirth to wail a week?
Or sells eternity to get a toy?
For one sweet grape who will the vine destroy? - Shakespeare

The man who throws his life, family and friends away for one moment of pleasure…

The girl who throws her future away for one moment of pleasure…

The boy who throws everything away for one moment of rage…

The woman who uses what she has to get what she wants but later realizes she has nothing worth anything…

Yeah sin feels good while its going on, yeah you feel like you get some advantage while things are going good…

But sin is stupid, it always leads to destruction, something within you ALWAYS dies (Romans 6:23)

While righteousness (God’s way of doing things)- always leads to life, favor, peace, joy…(Galatians 5:22-23)

So why do I turn so easily away from you God, why do I not focus on you and your grace and your love? Why do I so easily acquiesce to “Tim Tation” and his requests – when my heart’s desire is to give you my all. Oh wretched flesh that I am who will deliver me from this death that I die?

THANKS BE TO GOD FOR JESUS CHRIST- for he has delivered and empowered me…

Sin is stupid, so I choose to walk in wisdom!
