Pastor’s Corner

Pastors Corner 2-19-2012

The other day at a training I was doing, I had donuts for the people who were attending. One of the gentlemen was eating a donut when the conversation turned to how many calories were in the donut. “Do you know that they have 400 calories”, and someone else brought up that some donuts even have 600 calories? One the women offered this observation, if you are eating a donut it is to late to worry about the calories. As I thought about this statement I realized that it applies to a lot more than donuts. We should give some thought before we do things that are harmful to us both physically and spiritually. The bible tells us (1 John 2:16) that the temptation of sin has its basis in worldly lusts and (James 1:14) tells us that every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. For as Lot looked upon Sodom and Gomorrah, he only saw the water and abundance, he never considered the evil that also was present in the cities. Knowing what Satan uses to cause us to sin helps Christians to avoid sin in their lives. Perhaps we should adapt an old saying, “look before you leap” to “think before you sin.”
