It Takes a Thief And Satan Is A Thief - John 10:10

pick-pockets, Satan, 1 Peter 5:8, being alert to Satan
Satan is a pick-pocket, stealing our attentions from the Lord...

Soon after we arrived in Budapest,* my husband's wallet was pick- pocketed on a crowded tram. The thief managed to remove the wallet from my husband's buttoned pocket.

Afterwards, we remembered some suspicious behavior. Perhaps if we hadn't been jet-lagged we'd have been more careful and alert. But you can bet we've been more careful since this theft.

In some ways, this situation mirrors our spiritual lives.

John 10:10 identifies the world's worst thief and 1 Peter 5:8 warns us: "Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour." (NLT)

Fortunately, we have solid Biblical ways to keep Satan from stealing our treasures by:
Have you suffered a defeat recently? Let it make you more alert and prepared in the future.
*We did Christian work in Budapest for 5 years and we return each year for 2-3 months.
