READ: PSALM 101:2-4
I saw my first brown recluse spider. The spider was under the leg of a
card table that had been in the attic for years. I looked at it to determine if it were poisonous, and then I killed it. The brown recluse is a small, light brown spider known for its venomous bite that can leave damaged tissue as large as a human hand. Most people identify the brown recluse by its dark violin-shaped marking on its thorax (head area). But, if you really want to know that you are looking at a brown recluse, you have to look him in the eye. Brown recluse spiders have six eyes, as opposed to eight eyes of most spiders. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to get that close to something that has the power to harm me. God doesn’t want us
getting close to sin. Certain people, certain places and even situations, can align to make it easy for us to sin. We need to stay away from these. If a person repeatedly leads you into sin, avoid this person. If a particular part of town leads you into sin, avoid that side of town. Distance things, change habits and behaviors, and avoid people that are associated with your sin. It will give you fewer chances to fail and few opportunities to sin.
