(Proverbs 9:15 KJV) To call passengers who go right on their ways:
Today you will face pressure to compromise your righteousness. The enemy of your soul might be so ambitious as to present you with blatant sin and temp you to commit it. The devil is out to get you. How does he know the best approach? He doesn’t know your heart like God does. He can’t influence you the way the Holy Spirit can. He is limited, but he is a good watcher.
In the context of this verse we have the seductress sitting and watching the crowd. She is trying to decide whom to entice. She picks out this young man. What did she see? How long had she been watching him? What does Satan see in our daily lives that gives him the clues he needs to make his approach? He doesn’t temp me with alcohol but he might with poker. He never tells me to outright lie but I am often called on to exaggerate.
So? Walk in righteousness or as this verse mentions, on the straight path. It is hard to fall off the edge when you are in the middle.
