We can lose sight of truth if we feed our minds with things of the world.
We see this in the parable of the prodigal son in Luke 15. He chose to purse the things of the world and it clouded his judgement and caused him to lose sight of truth. Verse 17 says, “But when he came to himself (senses)”. When we open the door to the things of this world we lose our sense of truth.
Evil can creep into our lives so easily and like a vortex it sucks us in to its destruction. Peter warns us in 1 Peter 5:8 with these words, “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” The devil is looking for any open door in our lives to entice us into his trap; sometimes without us even knowing it. Every decision we make matters.
Paul tells us in Ephesians 5:3 that “there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people.” And in verse 4 he adds to the list “obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking.”
Don’t give the enemy an opportunity in your life. It’s not worth it. Pursue holiness in every area. – by Michelle Pitman
