''We're always making a decision to give up something that we value less for something we value more." Paul Richard, President, Consumer Financial Education Institute
Have you noticed grocery stores put staples like milk and eggs at the back so we have to go through the store to get them?
To avoid temptation, we can go prepared with a list and keep our eyes straight ahead instead of glancing at the aisles of temptation along the way.
Satan employs this tactic too. He lines our path with aisles of wrong choices and distractions, some of which are very costly.
He'd like to divert, delay or derail us, making us spend all we have before we reach God's goals for our lives.
To avoid temptation, we can do the Proverbs 4 walk: "Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you. Give careful thought to the paths for your feet..." Proverbs 4:25-26
What are some practical ways you walk in the Proverbs 4 path?
