Wrong Place, Wrong Time by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 05/13/11

 

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Proverbs 7 tells us the story of a foolish woman and the young man she ends up seducing. It says he was “passing along the street near her corner; and he took the path to her house.” It says this happened, “in the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night.”

Both the man and woman in this story made choices that led them to the wrong place at the wrong time. This passage tells us how important it is to stay away from situations where it would be easy to do something wrong.

Do you avoid situations where you could be vulnerable to sin? For me, that means leaving the door open if I’m meeting with a married man. It means not driving alone with a married man. It means that if I’m emailing a married man, I stick to business topics and copy his wife if the subject gets more personal.

What are some commitments you could put in place to avoid being in the wrong place at the wrong time?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “I entreat you, give no place to despondency. This is a dangerous temptation–a refined, not a gross temptation of the adversary. Melancholy contracts and withers the heart, and renders it unfit to receive the impressions of grace. It magnifies and gives a false colouring to objects, and thus renders your burdens too heavy to bear. God’s designs regarding you, and His methods of bringing about these designs, are infinitely wise.” – Madame Guyon
