What plans do you have for today?


Proverbs 6:16-18. 16There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: 18 feet that make haste to run to evil,

It’s one thing when we accidently stumble into trouble, and quite a different thing when we go looking for trouble. That’s the sin that Solomon is describing here, a person who likes to be around those that are doing wrong things. Does this describe you? Where do your feet take you? Who do you hang out with? Are you drawn toward those who are misbehaving or are you able to resist and walk away?

Have you ever gotten in trouble and said, “But everyone else was doing it too?” Sometimes this is called “following the crowd.” Sin grows easily in crowds doesn’t it? When the teacher leaves the classroom and soon everyone is out of their seat and not doing their work. Or when others are picking on someone on the playground and then others join in too. Some very terrible things have happened simply because people followed the crowd.

In the New Testament the Apostle Peter tells us to “follow in the steps of Jesus.” You see you can’t just decide to not go toward sin and evil. You have to decide to walk with Jesus. To go toward what is good and righteous, loving and kind. We can only truly stop sinning by starting to do good. If you decide to not move toward sin but don’t also move toward Jesus, that’s right, eventually you will just start moving toward a different sin.

Do you actively follow Jesus? Walk with him? Listen to him? Do you think about how you will do what he does? Most importantly, do you trust him?

Because of Jesus we can choose good over evil.

With Jesus you can walk away from sin and evil.


Make Ephesians 5:15 a memory verse for your family.


Jesus, I don’t want to run toward evil. I want to follow you and walk with you in your love and kindness. Amen.
