Escaping The Net
Proverbs1,beginning at verse 15, says, "Myson, do not walk in the way with them, keep your foot from their path, fortheir feet run to evil and they make haste to shed blood. Surely in vain, the net isspread in the sight of any bird."
Can anyone arguethat birds are anything but a wonder designed andenabled by the Creator? They have abilities of which the rest of us can only dream.Their instincts allowthem to elude man's schemes to take themcaptive.
As believers in Christ, we arealso divinely enabled to live in freedom unless we choose to embrace thecrooked reasonings of the fallen society that is all around us. Read Proverbs1:10–19. Ifwe yield to this fallen world's greed and resentments, we are indeed caught in their net.
It'stime to pray.
