July 2

I love to eat salmon! I like it best grilled with lemon butter sauce. If it’s on the menu, I’m ordering it! When we went out to dinner Sunday after church, I did just that, ordered the salmon. As I began eating it, I realized they had overcooked it and it had a burnt taste. I sent it back and they cooked me another one. It came out exactly the same, burnt on the bottom. At that point, I lost my appetite. I do not desire the burnt taste. Sin is like burnt fish, you can try to feed it to others, but if they are forgiven of sin themselves, they may reject your offer. The taste of sin is no longer a desire, not only that, but we try to avoid it because of Jesus. If you are toying with sin and foolishness, avoid trying to drag others into your games, and turn from it so you may be forgiven too. 

For “Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit; let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it. 1 Peter 3:10-11
