Flirting can be fun, but what happens when the person or thing you’re flirting with starts chasing you? Are you prepared for the situation to rapidly accelerate until it has you trapped? Some enjoy flirting with other people’s boyfriends, girlfriends, and the like. Some find themselves flirting with trouble in the form of drugs, or sex, or any one of a million other things. If I’ve learned anything in my life, it’s probably that even flirting with sin is too much. We must look a lot like a fish nibbling on some tasty bait until the moment when Satan jerks the line and we find ourselves on a painful hook!
“Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul. Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.” 1 Peter 2:11-12
