Pr. 10:2: “Treasures of wickedness profit nothing, but righteousness delivers from death.”
So, I tried to make these wreaths with my kids today. They look so cute, right?
I left them in the oven too long and they all melted into big red and white blobs. (This lovely picture came off the internet)
Later today I thought about those blobs. Have you ever seen a sin that seemed like just the right thing to do? You anticipate how it will be. You romanticize the outcome. You think of all the possible positive outcomes, and overlook all the negatives. It seems like the perfect plan.
And then, in the aftermath, it turns into a big melted, messy blob. It looks nothing like your original idea, and the whole place smells of smoke.
