Breakfast with Solomon - Proverbs 13:19

"Desire realized is sweet to the soul, but it is an abomination to fools to turn away from evil..."

This is like God is running a test. Will you turn away from what is truly evil: unfaithfulness to spouse; anger that turns to murder; ill-gotten gains; lie to save punishment. At some point in your life – and really constantly after you become a Christian – you will need to turn away from the evil that you could commit.

The person who is the moral fool is the person who always gives in to temptation. They are just sucked in. It always promises and we bite.

All true recovery comes when we draw on God's power to turn away from evil. Without the energy and desire to turn away from evil, every outward change will be turned back to destruction. There must be a new ability to turn away from evil.

The evil of the Proverbs is clearly defined as that which is outside the ten box. Does it violate one of the Ten Commandments?

Until tomorrow,

Gil Stieglitz
