My son, if sinners entice you, do not give in to them. — Proverbs 1:10

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

The real issue isn’t “if” but “when”! Our children face tremendous peer pressure. We do, too! We must help them resist the enticements of this pressure. Also, we must never tire in resisting them ourselves.

My Prayer…

O God, I do face temptations and enticements. Please guard my heart, my life, and my example. Help me be a person of character and integrity. In addition, please enable me to lead, protect, guard, and warn my children — both those who are my children in the flesh and those in the faith. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
