Pitfalls are a dangerous part of life. These poor decisions ruin lives every single day. Everyone needs to be aware of the pitfalls.
Satan knows each of us and his demons study our lives to find which areas we are weak in. They watch and wait for the opportune time so we will fall into their trap. Be aware of the pitfalls!
Unfortunately, every time you turn around, you hear of someone making a poor decision that not only affects them, but their family, their church, and the kingdom of God. Sexual sin seems to be the one that I hear about the most.
Henry Blackaby said, “Sexual sin has the heinous power to destroy a career, a family, and a reputation, all in one blow.”
Purity equals power. The bible is very clear on the subject of sexual purity and the consequences of adultery. (Proverbs 5-7)
The simple solution: if you are married, never ever be alone with someone of the opposite sex other than your spouse. Blackaby says, “The tragedy of sexual sin is that it is just as avoidable as it is devastating.”
Read that last quote by Blackaby again…
Pitfalls really are avoidable. By spending time daily with the Lord, keeping short accounts with sin, daily confession and repenting.
Also by being spirit filled and dressed in the armor of God.
We can avoid the pitfalls!
