Sins of the Wicked - a Trap

Proverbs 5:22 (GNB)
The sins of the wicked are a trap. They get caught in the net of their own sin.

The wicked lie and one lie leads to another to cover for the first one, which is then accompanied by another to cover for the other two and so it will go on until one day they end up not remembering what they said in the beginning or a few lies after that and they slip up on one little thing and all the other lies are revealed.

The ones committing adultery feel so good about the extra-marital affair or affairs they may be involved in, because they think they are good at what they do without letting their partners find out. Then when something happens that makes the innocent partner become suspicious, they then spin a web of lies to cover up the truth. They then have work extra hard to hide their affairs and also put more lies in place to hide the truth... until they end up either impregnating someone or becoming pregnant or even end up with a sexually transmitted disease. Then everything is revealed.

Now when these things are revealed the wicked lose everything. They lose respect, wealth, dignity, friends, family and worst of all they lose their place in the Kingdom of Heaven... unless of course they repent of their sins and accept Christ as their saviour, but most of them are too stubborn and too proud to even admit that they are sinners. So by not acknowledging that they are indeed sinners they condemn themselves to the fiery pits of hell.

Now these are only two examples of everyday occurrences we see happening all around. In some cases people are caught up adultery, lies, filled with pride, love money and commit idolatry all at the same time. One day and in some way, they will slip up and end up losing everything they have.

So for me it is better that I gain whatever I may get from honest works and that I remain honest in everything I do and say even if I never get the car or house I or anything else I always wanted. At least I don’t have live with the worry about losing everything I have all because a few seconds or moments of pleasure. Live according to the Word of God and you will be rewarded.
