(Pro 1:10 KJV) My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.
If you read on past verse 10 you find quite a list of activities that people will invite you to participate in. The list given here would not be hard for me to resist but I don’t think this is a complete listing. Satan is really good at getting us moving in the wrong direction with mild proposals that might generate a simple, “What can it hurt?”
It can hurt a lot. If the people tempting us are sinners then that means that we are not. It means that we march on the Highway of Holiness and their main desire is to get us off.
So? Beware. Keep it pure. Keep it righteous. Develop a spiritual level. The Bible is more familiar with the plumbline (KJV) or plumb line (NASB).
(Amo 7:7 KJV) Thus he shewed me: and, behold, the Lord stood upon a wall made by a plumbline, with a plumbline in his hand.Either way. God wants us standing tall and straight.
