Forbidden Fruit

Proverbs 9  14:17 says she sits in her doorway on the heights overlooking the city. She calls out to men going by who are minding their own business. Come in with me, she urges the simple. To those who lack good judgement, she says, stolen water is refreshing;  food eaten in secret taste the best!

Something seems to be hypnotic and intoxicating about wickedness. One sin leads to another, sinful Behavior seems more exciting than the Christian Life.

That is why many people put aside all thought of wisdom’s sumptuous banquet in order to eat the stolen food of folly. Don’t be deceived, Sin is dangerous. Before reaching for forbidden fruit, take a long look at what happens to those who eat it.
