The World's Deadly Potion

"Flee from youthful lusts--and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace." 2 Timothy 2:22

Flee from youthful lusts and worldly delights. These bees carry honey in their mouths--but they have a sting in their tails! When this Jael brings forth her milk and her butter--then beware of the nail and the hammer! Death is in the pot--while you are tasting the soup!

The world always presents a deadly potion--in the gilded cup of worldly pleasure. If the cup is sinful--do not taste it; reason forbids you to taste known poison! The fish is caught upon the hook--by leaping at the bait! Sin is like a river, which begins in a quiet spring--but ends in a tumultuous sea.
--William Secker
