“Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things.”
Sin causes us to look upon things that we otherwise would not see.
In the Scriptures, strange women are often an example of the foolishness of sin.
Our eyes are attracted to the sinful things around us.
This is why we must be careful what we allow ourselves to see.
“I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.”
Our words tell more about us that we often realize.
What we see affects our hearts, which determines what we say.
“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.”
The state of our hearts determines our words and actions.
Those that are drunk in sin often thirst for more when they awake from their condition.
“Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast. They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten me, and I felt it not: when shall I awake? I will seek it yet again.”
This cycle of sin begins by looking upon it; for when we allow ourselves to look, we give way for lust, sin, and eventually death. Look away from the wickedness today before it consumes.
