(Pro 9:17 KJV) Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.
Here we have a promise. We love promises because they promise things. Too often we don’t stop to think about whether we really want what is being promised. I sometimes waste time looking at the ads that appear on the edge of my computer screen when I am on the internet. I often find myself wondering, “Who would be interested in that?” There must be someone because the ads keep appearing.
Or maybe no one is interested but they think it must be a deal if it is being offered. During the virus panic there was a shortage of toilet paper. I remember some posters advertising toilet paper seeds and showing a picture of the empty spools found in the center. I have wondered if anybody ever called the number to order them.
So? Keep in mind that often you get what you deserve. While Jesus came to pay for our sins I am not sure He can do much for stupid.
